Xenoblade Chronicles X

Nintendo and Monolith Soft have finally revealed the full name of their new game formerly known as “X”: Xenoblade Chronicles X. A little more clarity on the premise was given, along with footage showing characters and a bit of what is in store regarding the plot. Whether this is a sequel or not remains to be seen. Even what appears to be a Nopon rears its head at the end of the video, though it seems the graphic quality did indeed dip.

You can watch the video below…

…then check out some screenshots and a feature overview.

Pre-order the game from Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, and Amazon.co.uk.

  • The trailer is awesome, as usual. I knew it will be a Xenoblade since the beginning ! There is too much Xenoblade in the first trailers and it was impossible to the “former game known as X” to not be a Xenoblade.

    Great things were also done with the scenario. In XC, the “Xenoblade” word means the Xeno blade, aka the Monado. But in XCX “Xenoblade” is now “Xeno B.L.A.D.E.”, which does not directly mean Monado anymore.

    Nopons are back too and I am surprised. I did not even think that they will return in XCX. Tatsu is the new Riki.

    As for the scenario, I think XCX will be a XC sequel. The town at the end of the trailer looks like a fortified Colony 9 as rebuilt by Shulk at the end of XC. B.L.A.D.E. = XC’s Monado’s technology that everybody can now use. Tragedy which might not be repeated = the destruction and recreation of the world just like Zanza did in XC. All of this + the “Bionis island” of the first trailers + Problems with all that stuff = XCX’s story.

    The only sad news is that the game will be released in 2015 instead of 2014. But let’s wish that they will do like Platinium Games with Bayonetta and release the first game of the IP with HD graphics on Wii U. 😉

    I went and bought 3 Wii U games today. Getting my Wii U at the end of this month. Hyrule Warriors, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Bayonetta 2, confirmed Star Fox, Splatoon… I just… I can’t avoid the Wii U anymore. My plans to buy a PS4 this year have moved on to next year. Good job, Nintendo.

    Wasn’t “Tatsu” the name of “Satata” in Xenoblade Chronicles before it was localized?
    He even has the same strange googly glasses in this trailer. But I don’t see how it could be the same Nopon as coincidental as it might be.

    • *after it was localized

      This Colony 6 nopon is called Tatsu in the European versions (the French one, at least).
