Aksys Games announced four new titles coming to Nintendo Switch™ as well as updates to other games in development at the “All Aksys” event today on their official Twitch channel, AksysGames. New forthcoming titles include:
Tokyo Xanadu eX+ (NSW/June 2024) – The popular action role-playing game developed by Nihon Falcom comes to Nintendo Switch! 10 years ago, a colossal earthquake devastated Tokyo and changed the lives of its inhabitants forever. The city has since been rebuilt and life has slowly returned to a semblance of normalcy. However, behind the veil of this newly rebuilt metropolis lies another world, one with a sinister secret. The earthquake that originally destroyed Tokyo was actually caused by the emergence of a mysterious and lethal shadow world known as Eclipse. Now, action must be taken to thwart the legions of Eclipse and ensure the protection of peace!
A 4-CD set featuring all 88 songs from the Tokyo Xanadu eX+ soundtrack will be available exclusively on the Aksys Online Store.
