A few months ago XSEED released a unique dungeon crawler called Unchained Blades as a downloadable title on the PSP. The company also is planning on releasing a 3DS version of the game on the eShop, though an exact release date for that version is currently unknown.
Obviously the lack of the 3DS version has worried many about what will become of the series and if the game’s sequel, Unchained Blades Exxiv, would be localized. One inquisitive fan took to the company’s Facebook page a few weeks ago and asked them just that. GoNintendo managed to catch their response to this fan which followed as thus:
“We’re still struggling to get the original out on 3DS first. After that’s finally out the door (hopefully December), then maybe we can start thinking about the sequel.”
Unchained Blades Exxiv contains many of the same themes as it’s predecessor with some minor improvements and, ironically, it is also meant to be released on the PSP and 3DS in Japan. So whether or not this sequel ever makes it to Western shores will likely have a lot to do on if XSEED can manage to release Unchained Blades on the 3DS and how well the game sells on the eShop.
