'''XSEED Games''' (XSEED JKS, Inc.) is an American video game publisher founded by former employees of Creator/SquareEnix's American branch that specializes in localizing Japanese video games from various companies for the North American market, similarly to {{Creator/Atlus}} USA and [[Creator/NipponIchi NIS America]]. It has formed a partnership with Marvelous Entertainment USA to publish some of its games in North America, and recently formed an exclusive publishing partnership with {{Creator/Falcom}}, essentially making XSEED the primary publisher of ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' and ''[[VideoGame/LegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky The Legend Of Heroes]]'' games in North America. They are also responsible for localizing most of Creator/MediaVision's games, including the ''Franchise/WildArms'' series.
!! Tropes associated with XSEED
* DoingItForTheArt: ''VideoGame/RetroGameChallenge'' was brought over solely because they wanted it to be released in the United States. They also brought over the ''VideoGame/LegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'' trilogy, which is known for having thousands of lines of text...''per game''. This is in spite of the fact that no other publisher would touch it, because of its infamous BlindIdiotTranslation previous installments.
* {{Fanservice}}: Several, but the VideoGame/SenranKagura franchise is their biggest example, [[SexSells something that they are very well-aware of]].
** Subverted, as [[http://www.siliconera.com/2014/07/04/fanservice-games-apart-senran-kagura-says-xseed/ they plan to no longer release any more fanservice games]] that aren't related to ''Senran Kagura''. It's because that series is Marvelous' most successful one, and also because they can see its potential beyond its famous fanservice.
* FriendlyRival: With Aksys Games.
* KindheartedCatLover: They occasionally post pictures of their cats on their Twitter.
* [[NetworkToTheRescue Publisher To The Rescue]]: Thanks to Operation Rainfall's efforts, while Nintendo themselves handled the entire international release of ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'', it was XSEED that also made the North American release of the operation's two other games, ''VideoGame/TheLastStory'' & ''VideoGame/PandorasTower'', a reality.[[note]]Nintendo handled the publishing of those games in Japan and Europe, as well.[[/note]]
