XSEED Games Brings New Titles To E3

XSEEDingly exciting news!


XSEED Games, the publishing wing of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced a new lineup of games, both newly announced and reintroduced via new platforms, which will be playable for the very first time at the 2017 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) from June 13 – 15 in Los Angeles. Revealed today is Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection for PC, a wacky 3D action RPG from acclaimed developer Nihon Falcom, which was originally released in Japan as Zwei II Plus.

The company will also show off a series of games featuring strong, beautiful (and sometimes scantily-clad) female protagonists, including SENRAN KAGURA Peach Beach Splash and Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin for the PlayStation 4, the upcoming Nintendo Switch edition of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero with its Risky Boots DLC, and the upcoming Nintendo Switch edition of Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star.

As the show is open to the public this year, Senran Kagura series producer Kenichiro Takaki will attend for his first-ever American fan appearance, which will take place on Thursday, June 15 from 3:00 – 5:00 PM PDT. Of course, XSEED games will be selling games and merchandise at the stall as well (can’t forget capitalism!)

Ken Berry, Executive Vice President at Marvelous USA was confident about the upcoming stall, remarking:

“For XSEED Games, E3 has always been a time of excitement, as it’s our opportunity to share upcoming titles with the industry… This year, I’m overjoyed that fans are able to be a part of that experience. Not only do we have a fantastic lineup of titles at the show, it’s also rather diverse in terms of themes and genres, and we invite everyone to stop by the booth and check us out.”

Kenichiro Takaki, Senran Kagura Producer at Honey Parade Games was excited to meet fans, saying:

“I’m very much looking forward to meeting fans of my work at E3… I never thought that the series would leave Japan when I created SENRAN KAGURA, but now that it has gained fans worldwide, I want to meet them and am so happy that Marvelous and E3 has allowed me to do just that.”

XSEED Games will be located in the West Hall, Booth #4700. If you’re heading to E3 (and Hey Poor Player certainly is) then be sure to head over there and check it out! Check out the trailer below to get a taster of the scantily-clad summery Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash!


Jonathan is HeyPoorPlayer's token British person, so expect him to thoroughly exploit this by quoting Monty Python and saying things like "Pip, pip, toodly-whotsit!" for the delight of American readers. He likes artsy-fartsy games, RPGs and RPG-Hybrids (which means pretty much everything at this point). He used to write for He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.
