Round-Up Upcoming And Localized Asian Games Of 2017

If you wanted more Asian-developed titles, then you're in luck. There are a ton coming.

Since we discussed the localization of Utawarerumono yesterday and how Asian-developed games might be coming in more now, let’s show a few more of those. Hell, even Overwatch is paying tribute with a theme this month and you might have spotted Nintendo doing a thing or two with Fire Emblem, so we’re covering all bases real quick:

We’ll start with a trailer for Birthdays the Beginning from publisher NIS America, which is the newest direction the creator of the Harvest Moon series has taken. That original series is now in some weird limbo with rights being changed, so publisher Natsume will go one way with it and creator Yasuhiro Wada will work on games that emulate its spirit, such as Hometown Story and now Birthdays the Beginning. The trailer shows the familiar Minecraft style, but with a twist set on creature evolution that spans several species, from dinosaurs to common pets. Birthdays the Beginning will release in early 2017 for Playstation 4 and PC.

NIS America will also put out God Wars Future Past in March 2017 for PS4 and PS Vita. North America will get the roleplaying game (RPG) on March 28 and Europe has now also received a date, following on March 31. Expect the usual tile-based strategy RPG, with 14 customizable characters, tons of skills and equipment. God Wars focuses on Japanese folklore and hopes to inspire traditional ink art in its style.

Publisher Aksys Games announced action RPG, Tokyo Xanadu, for multiple platforms, but with slight differences. There is a normal Vita version of the game, but PS4 and PC will receive Tokyo Xanadu eX+, which includes more content, such as an added character, more scenarios, dungeons, modes and monsters. PS4 and Vita will also come with their own Limited Editions, each containing a physical copy, a blade card game deck, an artbook, Soundtrack CD and a box to fit it in. An added plush will differ on the version of the game. Tokyo Xanadu follows many anime stories, where a mysterious world full of monsters breaches dimensions and lands in Tokyo. The game releases in North America and Europe in fall of 2017.

Lastly and in lesser extent, but just because we love Digimon, watch the latest trailer for Digimon World: Next Order, which arrives on PS4 in Europe on January 27, 2017. The clip shows of the Extra Cross Evolution or ExE digivolve sequences in combat. It’s like a Dragon Ball fusion, but with more cyber imagery thrown in there. It’s like the Digimon are slowly creeping closer to becoming Gundam, which, let’s face it, is absolutely fine.

Let us know what your favorite pick is in the comments; we’ll be here putting on Exid K-pop on repeat.
