Nintendo has announced via Twitter that they will be having a Direct tomorrow morning at 6am PST/9am EST. This direct will be focusing on Spring games, which may include a certain Monolith Soft game. Earlier this morning, wife of Xenoblade Chronicles X director Tetsuya Takahashi, Soraya Saga, retweeted the tweet that Nintendo sent out.

soroya saga Xenoblade Chronicles X

Those that have been following Xenoblade Chronicles X related news closely realize that Soraya Saga only retweets Nintendo directs when something related to the game is shown. This has been the case for a couple of years now, so in my mind there is no doubt, especially when you consider that Xenoblade Chonicles X IS a Spring game in Japan, which means the game is set to release there soon.

However, we do have to keep in mind that the New 3DS version of Xenoblade Chronicles is also on the horizon so it is certainly possible her tweet is referring to that game. I still think chances are pretty high for new Xenoblade Chronicles X information, if only on the Japanese Direct since the game is releasing soon there. So those anxious for Xenoblade Chronicles X news may want to consider watching the Directs for both the North America and Japan regions tomorrow morning!

Don’t forget to pre-order Xenoblade Chronicles X from Amazon if you haven’t yet!

    Xeboblade Chronicles X isn’t going to be released on the NEW 3DS, but Xenoblade Chronicles, i now that you meant Xenoblade Chronicles, so feel free to fix your mistake.

    • Jeff Neuenschwander

      Simple slip-up. It happens. It’s fixed.

    • Keichi Morisato

      i know, and i wasn’t freaking out, i figured i would point it out.

      Thanks keichi and thanks Jeff. I had to go through and change the titles to the longer version to make the seo happy, but I fixed the wrong one.

    • Keichi Morisato

      yeah no problem, these things happen.

    I got the Wii U finally! Got if for the xenoblade and splatoon. Well, as long as xenoblade’s not a MMO. Currently enjoying Mario kart 8 and shantae and the pirates curse. Looking forward to seeing what is coming out the first half of this year. Star fox? Zelda? Mighty No. 9? Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero? Splatoon’s a shoe in. Xenoblade update would be awesome too

      Xenoblade Chronicles X is going to have co-op multiplayer sorta like Monster Hunter. real people will replace the AI controller allies with their own hero’s.

      Kind of strange though that this hasn’t been confirmed as of yet, I think we have a TBA, and we haven’t seen much about multiplayer since the initial reveal. I have a feeling that it’s been revamped or possible redone or limited in some way. Guess we’ll see.

  • Anthony Yousef

    I’m seriously hoping that there will be information for the date! If we can get it as close as possible to the Japanese release or even as early as, I will be a happy individual!

      I personally think we’ll get it this summer, but I’m always hopeful it’ll be sooner.
