XSEED Games Unveils a “Marvelous” Lineup of PC and Console Titles

XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, today announced their plans to publish an exciting lineup of new and returning Marvelous titles in North America in the coming year. Continuing the publisher’s commitment to offer new generations of gamers the opportunity to experience hidden gems from the past, the year’s Marvelous offerings are set to kick off on Windows PC on April 25, 2018 with the cult-favorite action adventure title Bullet Witch, previously an exclusive on Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, now featuring visual and gameplay improvements to bring it in line with modern gaming standards. Following the success of Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, Fate/Extella Link is set for release this winter on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system, starting a new chapter on the battle for dominance over the virtual world of SE.RA.PH while adding an expanded cast of legendary heroes from other entries in the Fate series, along with added online play for the PS4 system version.

Meanwhile, the fan-favorite busty brawler series Senran Kagura will be returning to where it all began, then further exploring new ways to interact with some of its most popular characters as the series continues to expand into new genres. More than a re-release, Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal is an HD remake of the already enhanced first title in the series, Senran Kagura Burst, which released for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems in 2013. Slated to launch on PS4 system and Windows PC, Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal will bring a full 3D experience and fresh, new mechanics to fans of the action-focused series this fall. Complementing this release and rounding out the lineup is the latest entry in the series, Senran Kagura Reflexions, released as Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura in Japan in 2017 and slated to make its Western debut on the Nintendo Switch in summer 2018. Feel the heartbeat of shinobi heroine Asuka via the unique properties of the Joy-Con controllers, and embark on an emotional rollercoaster with this hands-on narrative featuring branching story paths and introducing a brand new genre to the Senran Kagura oeuvre!

“2018 is going to continue to be an incredible year for Marvelous and XSEED Games and we’re all extremely excited for this first major lineup of titles we’re announcing today,” said Shinichi Suzuki, President and CEO of Marvelous USA. “These games represent a small part of what we have in store for the year, and it’s a great example of the different types of titles that we hope we can continue bringing to Western gamers as we ourselves continue to grow. We have a great library of older titles that are ripe to be re-introduced to modern audiences and nicely complement our more current Marvelous releases, and we hope that fans will enjoy playing them as much as we’re enjoying working on them.”

About Bullet Witch

Originally released for the Xbox 360 in 2006, Bullet Witch offered a unique combination of Japanese dark-fantasy aesthetics and Western-style military action. This hidden gem is coming back and will be ready for action on Windows PC for a new generation of gamers with a host of visual and quality-of-life improvements. Take control of Alicia and her powerful, multi-purpose “gunrod” to lay waste to demonic foes by bullet or spell, even using the surrounding environment as part of her arsenal. All original cosmetic and content DLC is included in this re-release, providing access to every in-game costume immediately and adding bonus missions that expand the length of the campaign well beyond the story’s conclusion.

Slated for publishing on Windows PC worldwide by XSEED Games, Bullet Witch is headed for digital release on Steam (this link will be live at 10AM PT) and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle on April 25, 2018 with a 10% launch week discount from its regular selling price of $14.99, €14.99, and £12.99.

About Fate/Extella Link

Picking up where the story ended in Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, Fate/Extella Link expands the roster of playable Servants with 10 new legendary heroes added to the original selection of 16. These new Servants hail from other entries in the Fate series and include the likes of Astolfo, Scàthach, and Francis Drake. The high-speed action gameplay of Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star continues with improved visuals and new battle mechanics in both single-player and an added multiplayer mode supporting 4-on-4 online battles. Players will also be able to move freely around their new base camp—a medieval cathedral suspended in the sky—and interact with Servants to build bonds with them, taking on side missions that further flesh out their backstories.

Developed by Marvelous and slated for publishing in North America on PS4 system and “PS Vita” system by XSEED Games, Fate/Extella Link will release this winter both digitally and physically on PS4 system and digitally on “PS Vita” system. More release details will be shared at a future time.

About Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal

Originally released under the name Senran Kagura Burst in North America and serving as a “director’s cut”-style take on the inaugural entry in this now storied series, Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal brings the prior release’s classic 2.5D action to modern hardware with a full 3D remake and a fresh retelling of the story that started it all. This fast-paced brawler will provide updated combat mechanics and character models, as well as all-new special effects for a voluptuous visual feast! The series’ popular Dressing Room mode continues to see expansions too, with a wealth of new outfits and options that allow players to customize their favorite girls’ looks and styles. With additional DLC episodes to come that will reveal new story episodes for Yumi and Miyabi detailing their histories prior to meeting Asuka and Homura, Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal delivers an authentic recreation of the original game while ensuring that series fans will have plenty of new content to look forward to!

Developed by Honey∞Parade Games and slated for publishing on PS4 system and Windows PC, Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal will release this fall both digitally and physically on PS4 system and digitally on Windows PC. More release details will be shared at a future time.

About Senran Kagura Reflexions

After brutal melees, rhythmic cooking contests, and shockingly serious water gun fights, the Senran Kagura series is ready to take on the world of interactive storytelling for the first time and give players a chance to get to know the shinobi heroine Asuka in surprising new ways. Senran Kagura Reflexions uses the unique properties of the Joy-Con™ to employ the art of reflexology and massage. Melt away Asuka’s worries and stresses by hand or through a variety of useful tools and explore deeper relationships than have ever been possible in the series before.

The advanced HD rumble technology provides a more realistic sense of interaction and feeling with Asuka, helping guide players to react to her signals and deliver some much-needed relaxation. Interacting with her in different ways will lead players across branching paths toward one of seven different story scenes and six unique endings—and that’s just for Asuka. Additional DLC characters including fan-favorites Yumi, Murasaki, and Ryona will be released after launch.

Developed by Honey∞Parade Games and slated for digital release on Nintendo Switch, Senran Kagura Reflexions will launch this summer.

Yes, it's provably fake, but if I didn't post anything that I suspected was fake there'd only be about half as many posts.

And that, manito, is why I post stuff that looks fake even when it looks fake, because there is always that chance.
