Xevious: Fardraut Saga (ゼビウス ファードラウト伝説サーガ?) is a shooter for the MSX2 and PC Engine developed by Compile and published by Namco, which is part of the Xevious series. It is likely that the later PC Engine version, being fairly similar and made for more powerful hardware, is an "upgraded version".


Players can select between two modes at the title screen: "Recon", a port of the original Xevious; and "Scramble", which is a new 16-area game with new enemies, new boss battles as well as the Andor Genesis, and four ships (Solvalou, Solgrado, Zeodalley, and Gampmission).

PC Engine[edit]

The two modes have been renamed to "Arcade" and "Fardraut". However, Fardraut is a bit different from the original Scramble: it is a 4 stage game with new enemies and a different ship on each level. At the end of each level, a boss battle which is similar to the Andor Genesis will be at the end of each level. Before each level players will be given a dialogue of the story that is given in the game.
