Eastasiasoft announced today that its upcoming action RPG Xuan Yuan Sword 7 will release on September 30th for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Created in partnership with SOFTSTAR and DOMO Studio, it’s the first game in the series 30-year history to be published in the west.

“Bringing the Xuan Yuan Sword series to the west with Xuan Yuan Sword 7 is extremely exciting,” said Joshua M French, Community Manager at eastasiasoft. “Anyone with an interest in either Chinese mythology or action-RPGs will have a blast with this latest entry, which was designed as an entry point for a whole new audience.”

To celebrate today’s announcement, the publisher released a new gameplay trailer. Titled “Brother and Sister,” it highlights the bond between siblings. But don’t you worry; It’s not all mushy stuff. We also get a look at Xuan Yuan Sword 7’s weapon and item crafting systems and explosive real-time combat.

Here’s a rundown courtesy of the publisher:

“Set 2000 years ago in China near the end of Western Han rule, Xuan Yuan Sword 7 places players in the role of noble swordsman Taishi Zhao following the trail of a mysterious bamboo slip from the crypt of Marquis of Liu that promised prosperity, but only brought famine and misery in its wake. To protect his family and seek out the truth of this calamity, Taishi Zhao embarks upon a journey through a mythological realm full of otherworldly beings bent on his destruction.

Along the way, Taishi Zhao must master a host of fighting techniques. Armed with the Elysium Scroll, he can slow down time, absorb monsters, or alter the environment. Upgrade your armor and weapons, develop passive skills, and learn new techniques. Block, dodge, and riposte your foes as you journey through this haunted realm.”

So, how do you like the look of the game so far? Will you experience Taishi Zhao’s story when Xuan Yuan Sword 7 launches next month? As always, we love to hear what you think. Be sure to let us know in the comments.
