Creator / XSEED Games

XSEED Games (XSEED JKS, Inc.) is an American video game publisher founded by former employees of Square Enix's American branch that specializes in localizing Japanese video games from various companies for the North American market, similarly to Atlus USA and NIS America.

Known for their colorful localizations with a strict adherence to the spirit of their scripts, the company has gained a reputation for publishing games that could be considered too niche or uncertain for larger companies to localize, friendly and transparent PR open to fan feedback, excellent in-house PC ports, behind-the-scenes blog posts, and frankly insane work ethic.

The company has formed a partnership with Marvelous Entertainment USA to publish some of its games in North America, and an exclusive publishing partnership with Falcom, essentially making XSEED the primary publisher of the Ys and Trails games starting with Trails in the Sky in North America. They are also responsible for localizing most of Media Vision's games, including the Wild ARMs series.
