Tokyo Xanadu is Confirmed for the PS Vita, New Details Emerge

tokyo xanadu 2015-02-24

Falcom announced Tokyo Xanadu last December, but didn’t mention which platform it would be on. We now know (via Games Talk) that the game described as an “urban myth action RPG” will be on the Playstation Vita.

The two main characters have been fleshed out a bit, too. Kou Tokisaka (in the white jacket above) is a 17-year-old high school student, who’s blunt but not unfriendly; he’s good at mid-range attacks. Asuka Hiragi, his classmate (with the blonde hair), is a beautiful girl, an A-type student, and class president; she’s skilled at close combat.

Players take control of these characters and explore an alien realm next to ours, called “Xanadu”, fighting the creatures they find there with something called a Soul Device.

We’ll keep you updated.

    I really dislike that kind of setting. Schools are boring.

    Veeeeeeeeeeery any game set in a school setting with a supernatural subtext. -.-

    It could even be related to the old Falcom Dragon Slayer titles with that name; it’s as if no-one knows anything other then Persona nowadays. >.<

    I don’t think it’s going to actually take place in a school. Seems more like the excuse to get all the protags together in handling these problems. That’s just my impression based off what I heard though (there’s a bit more info going around than what’s here).

    Standard supernatural Japanese highschool action drama. Falcom can do great things with common tropes, let’s see what they produce here. At least it’s not a smart phone game.

    I know, would it kill them to have one in a college campus?

    Great now we just need more info, then we can argue wether or not it deserves a localization.

    It’s a start. But -gasp- that means there might not be any teenagers. Oh no, adulthood.

    Well in all fairness they could make it a university for the gifted. That way you could have one or two, but at that point, you’d be better of to make it a normal college experience; that way I can date the stripper :)
