Tokyo Xanadu eX+ Switch Port Shares Character Renders & Artwork

Developer Nihon Falcom has recently updated the official website for the upcoming Nintendo Switch port of their action JRPG, Tokyo Xanadu eX+, with official character renders and additional artwork.

For those unaware of this underrated entry, it’s disconnected from Falcom’s prominent Trails and Ys franchises. Instead, it takes place in a new setting called Morimiya City with a brand-new cast.

The title was initially only available on PlayStation Vita before receiving an enhanced port on PlayStation 4 dubbed eX+, adding new story and gameplay content. This version would then be ported to PC via Steam from publisher Aksys Games.

Gameplay features action combat, more akin to the Zwei duology, and inspired by the Ys games. Characters are swappable mid-combat, all boasting distinct properties and special skills for variety. Moreover, there is a social sim aspect where the protagonist, Kou, can hang out with his friends and acquaintances to raise bond levels.

Falcom has also confirmed that this version will include all of the game’s DLC from previous platforms, as well as Turbo Mode. Further, the controls, based on the PlayStation 4 iteration, have been optimized for the Switch, but specifics have not been elucidated.

While none of these illustrations are new since this release is just a port, it’s nice to have all of them compiled via a fresh, convenient avenue like this. Plus, there’s actually even some artwork here I’ve never seen before.

The character renders for Tokyo Xanadu eX+, including both party members and some of the more minor cast, are viewable via our gallery below:
