EastAsiaSoft has announced that Xuan Yuan Sword 7, the Chinese mythology-based action RPG, will be released for the Xbox One later this year.
This will mark the first time a game from the series is released for a console on the west.
The game, developed by DOMO Studio and originally published by Softstar, was released worldwide for PC on October 2020, followed by a PS4 release on Asian territories later that year.
This updated version will support text and subtitles in English, French, German, Spanish and Russian.
Physical editions of the game will also be available at retailers throughout North America and Europe in cooperation with Maximum Games.
Xuan Yuan Sword 7 is an action RPG with frenetic real-time combat, visceral 3D presentation and a rich cinematic narrative. It is a celebration of ancient China’s landscape, civilization and culture, infused with the mystique of its own legends in stark contrast to anachronistic technological designs. It is a world that is both familiar and mysterious, one of both science and spirituality, one that is waiting to be explored.
Take the role of the calm and reliable swordsman Taishi Zhao as he fights to protect his family and uncover the truth of a blight threatens all of China. With a story deeply rooted in ancient Chinese history and mythology, Xuan Yuan Sword 7 reimagines both as one fantastical and chaotic realm under the governance of a new Xin Dynasty.
Near the end of Western Han rule, the powerful prime minister of China superseded his Emperor, promising an era of peace and prosperity. But ten years later, that promise has never been fulfilled. Instead, a decade of war and famine has left China in ruin, and its salvation seems to lie in the hands of a Mohist swordsman who gains control of a fabled artifact called the Elysium Scroll. Can the science-seeking Mohists revive their former glory, or will they fade into the pages of forgotten history?
