Xenoblade Chronicles X New

Even if you haven’t already played the original Xenoblade Chronicles (blasphemy!), the spiritual sequel, Xenoblade Chronicles X, is looking more and more impressive. Today’s Treehouse coverage focused on a Skell based mission. While at first the player was utterly decimating the native flora and fauna, it quickly got more crazy when they came upon a rogue pilot with his very own Skell.

The amount of control you have over the way situations resolve in the game has me intrigued as well, as every little decision is left up to the player, with realistic consequences. In the case of the Treehouse event, they chose to show mercy to the rogue pilot, and listen to what he had to say after a quick skirmish. As it turned out, that was utterly the wrong decision, as the player was then ganged up on by several Skells that had to be turned to rubble. The gameplay looked utterly seamless and beautiful, sporting some of the best graphics I’ve yet seen on the Wii U console.

And is if that wasn’t enough, the footage ended with a localized cut scene that hinted at things to come. More and more Xenoblade Chronicles X is shaping up to being a must own Wii U title. Check out our screencaps and let us know if you agree!
