XSEED Games, a publishing arm of Marvelous USA, has announced that the company has this year surpassed previous highest-sales and fastest-selling records worldwide.
The company has launched a new video showcasing what it describes as one of its “strongest years,” with a diverse range of farming sims, RPGs, action games and fighting games appearing across PC and consoles.
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, which only launched last month, has already topped 500,000 sales, while Granblue Fantasy: Versus, the North American console debut of Cygames’ hit RPG, Granblue Fantasy, reached 450,000 sales globally. The company also reports that STORY OF SEASONS: Friends of Mineral Town has already sold over 200,000 copies on Switch alone in North America.
“This was an incredible year for us, and represents one of the more diverse lineups of games we’ve had,” says XSEED Games President, Ken Berry. “Between being able to release titles long in development to releasing fresh surprises, we hope that our games have helped people stay entertained through what has been a challenging year. We want to thank our fans for all their support and we look forward to a new year, and new surprises.”
XSEED has also already announced several games for next year; Switch owners will be particularly interested in STORY OF SEASONS: Pioneers of Olive Town and Rune Factory 5, both scheduled for 2021 launches on Nintendo’s platform. More info on these and “other exciting new titles” will be shared in the coming months.
