EastAsiaSoft announced they will publish the Softstar and Domo Studio-developed action RPG Xuan Yuan Sword 7 on PlayStation and Xbox consoles in the west this summer. A physical release of the game will be sold at retail from publisher Maximum Games.
The publisher only says “PlayStation and Xbox platforms,” which could mean the game will release on PS5 and Xbox Series X. However, publishers have also been saying this only to highlight backward compatibility. We’ll be sure to keep you updated.
“The Xuan Yuan Sword series has been a colossal part of the Chinese video game industry, yet has tragically failed to make its way to western shores,” said Joshua M French, Community Manager at eastasiasoft. “We aim to fix that with Xuan Yuan Sword 7, which we believe is the perfect entry point for any action RPG fan – especially those with an interest in anthropology and mythology.”
Xuan-Yuan Sword VII is an action RPG with a real-time combat system. In battle, players will combine attacks and abilities with taking down large enemies. Additional actions include active skills, dodge abilities, and flash block.
The game also has a feature is known as Elysium Scroll, a bamboo scroll with the power to absorb monsters, create items, and more. Once a monster is consumed, players can upgrade Taishi’s skill and refine his abilities.
