XSEED Celebrates the New Year With a Teaser Featuring 8 New Games [UPDATE]

xseed games 01-09-15-1

[UPDATE 2: It seems like there’s only four games being teased in the above image, courtesy of XSEED’s production coordinator, Hatsuu: I’ll be kind to those looking for 8 games in that teaser: there are only 4. Please don’t tear your hair out of your head looking for 8.]

[UPDATE: It seems like the first of the teasers has been confirmed to be Forbidden Magna, which is being localized as Lord of Magna. We’ll update this post appropriately as the other silhouettes are found.]

It seems like XSEED is teasing even more localization announcements for this year.

The new teaser (featured above) comes way of their New Years 2015 post, which just went up on their official Facebook page. As per their regular teases, the eight silhouetted pictures in the bottom right are their lineup of games to come.

It’s worth noting that domains for Xanadu Next, Forbidden Magna, Corpse Party: Blood Drive, and Trails of Cold Steel (which many think is actually The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki) were all registered by XSEED in the latter half of last year. Could those four titles be four of the above eight? Only time will tell.

Take your guesses below! What do you want to see XSEED localize in the near future?

    I’m sure some highly dedicated fan will figure it out in a week, heh.

    Hilarious, I was writing the post as you posted this :) I made a separate post for it. Let me update this one.

    The best guess I can make for the second is Corpse Party but that could be anybody’s legs.

    Oh man, I don’t know if you did that on purpose, but that was a terrible pun.

    90% of my comments anywhere are terrible puns.

    Yeah I saw that on GAF, although I want to hold off until we’re definitely sure? The Forbidden Magna one was easy, IMO

    Fuck yeah, I loved Napishtim even better than Origins. Would love to replay it on Nightmare.

    I don’t have the image on hand, but the third from the left is supposed to be Onechanbaru

    There it is. Snagged from a Neogaf thread.

    And then I notice it’s already confirmed in a newer story. D’oh.
