Take the story structure and numerous gameplay systems from Trails of Cold Steel, replace the turn-based combat with fast-paced action, and you’ll have an idea of what Tokyo Xanadu eX+ is. The story follows high schooler Kou Tokisaka as he investigates paranormal occurrences in Tokyo. Expect a plot dealing with the common JRPG theme of the power of friendship, supplemented by a fantastic Falcom soundtrack. The gameplay loop involves city exploration, bonding with NPCs and your party, and Falcom flavored dungeon traversal/combat. Overall, it’s anime JRPG comfort food. Nothing too surprising, but a lengthy and wholesome adventure nonetheless.
