Monolith Soft are working on a new title for Wii U. With trailer
I must not die before this releases!
You and me both brother. Nintendo is bringing the heat this gen.
The trailer looks amazing - http://gamewise.co/games/46...
That's a pretty cool trailer. Those monster looks awesome. Will definitely be keeping an eye on this game The trailer was pretty combat/graphics heavy though, will be interested in seeing what the towns and sidquests and stuff are like
Wow. I'm impressed. If Wii U continues bringing out games like this, then I will get one.
I HATE to be negative, but as AWESOME as Xenoblade is (I even have 2 copies, one sealed), it sold very poorly in the States and EU. People are just starting to see how great it is and are paying $100 a copy since its out of print already. It won't surprise me if this never leaves Japan. Fingers crossed, and rainbows wished upon that it will be released worldwide though.
@Sexius Maximus Actually according to Nintendo it sold pretty well, beyong what they expected. Might have not set the sale charts on fire, but definitely enough to please Nintendo. Same thing with Last Story, it was XSeed's most succesful game they have released
a little off-topic, but does anyone else saw the chatbox in 0:23? yeah, this game will have online multiplayer...
Sexius Xenoblade isnt out of print. I see tons of new copys in every gamestop i go in. It sold very well as did TLS. So well in fact theyre localizing Pandoras Tower which was the least popular of the 3. The only way people would pay 100 is people going to ebay or amazon instead of Gamestop. It seems to be a direct sequel to Xenoblade. Hopefully seeing Shulk doesnt spoil Xenoblade as im still not done 60-70 hours in. Buying this and a wii-u the day this or a Mistwalker title releases. Seems the wii-u is Nintendos return to Snes levels of awesome.
@Sexius, it doesn't help nintendo made it a gamestop exclusive, i don't live anywhere near one. I would have gotten it day 1 if it was available elsewhere. The last story did very well for xseed and they made it more widely avalible.
Wow, there is a lot going on there. A Kingdom Hearts meets PSO style combat system, some online-like connectivity. Ginormous dinosaurs, freaky monsters. Mechs!!! The draw distance and fluidity looks incredible. I am impressed.
@Sexius Machimus: This game was announced on the english Nintendo Direct video, directed to the Western market... so it's safe to assume it's going to come here.
@KESVALK Good catch- I hope you are right. "Intelligent" 1-UP Bubble Vote.
Yeah the combat system looks very similar to Xenoblade. But..I dunno if it is Xenoblade. Might be a new one again. Xenogears, Xenosaga, Xenoblade, Xeno****? I haven't finished Xenoblade yet either. I hope that isn't a spoiler too.
Hmmm never bothered about WiiU before this trailer the reason I buy consoles is JRPG's they are the only games I really play on consoles and the sole reason I invest. I love them to bits. It's why I ended up getting a 360 (for blue dragon etc) and stuck with my ps3 all this time after my 360's have long gone. However I dont like the look of the fight system on this. Other than that it looks great. Would have to see it more. It may not even come in English. Xenoblade nearly didnt and thats with the insane amount of Wii's sold outside Japan.
this is great, but considering how Nintendo published Xenoblade we may not get this game before 3 years
The trailer is impressive. However, nobody cared about Monolithsoft when they were making the Xenosaga series on PS2 and now they are suddenly regarded as a AAA JRPG developer. It is sad because they had to quit the Xenosaga series because of poor reception. Then they got sold to Nintendo and now they are rising to fame under them.
And people said Wii U wasn't "next gen" lol.
Well it's out, so technically it's current gen.
Can we finally put this to rest?
Plus this is a first generation RPG game on the Wii U and it looks amazing... it only will get better as developers really understand how to use the GPGPU and better middleware/engines are created to optimize the games for the hardware. Not a RPG fan but it looks impressive and its still in development.
I hope nintendo and sony dominate over Microsoft next gen.
If you seriously think that trailer looks like next gen gameplay then.....
that's next gen game ?! ..it look good but not next gen
Plus its an RPG, they tend to have the worst graphics on a console, as they need space for cutscenes, story, stats, and what not
What a day. I feel so good and happy. so glad I own a WiiU. So frigging glad! Thank's guys!
@zerocrossing Not trying to go against what you said at all. The game look great, but it doesn't look like anything the PS360 wouldn't be capable of. That's probably Aplha footage, and right now the game is easily among the best looking games on the PS360. That's saying a lot since the Wii-U is still in it's first year, but still we're comparing Wii-U to 6 & 7 year old consoles, and they're holding their own. That being said, it's everything I wanted and hoped for in the Wii-U. Nintendo has stepped it up with this Nintendo-Direct. These are the kind of announcements and games I needed to see to get me interested in the Wii-U. This N-Direct has finally got me interested in wanting to buy a Wii-U. I still think they should have gone with a simple AMD A8 - A10 APU which would have easily been priced the same, offered more power than what they currently have, and would have guaranteed that at the very least they will receive ports of most 3rd party games made for the PS4 / Nextbox / and PC since the Wii-U would have been a low-end PC that uses a highly similar CPU / GPU combination in the next gen consoles. But they're really pulling a lot out of what they have. Consider me impressed.
Did you watch the same trailer that I did? The game looks good, it really does, but nothing about that trailer says next gen. Nothing. There isn't anything here that couldn't be done on PS3/360. Now I'm not bashing the game, it does genuinely look like a solid game. I would play it. But don't sit there calling this next gen when it isn't.
Apparently some people are confused over my previous comment so allow me to elaborate. Wii U is next gen, I didn't refer to the "graphics" in my statement, if you thought I was then you jumped to conclusions since that is all people care about these days. Look beyond the graphics, look at the scale, the frame rate, the detail, it's definitely a step beyond the PS3 and 360 but not a giant leap, this is still early in development mind you, so I expect to be further impressed as its release draws near.
@zerocrossing Look beyond the graphics, look at the scale, the frame rate, the detail, it's definitely a step beyond the PS3 and 360 but not a giant leap, this is still early in development mind you, so I expect to be further impressed as its release draws near. There are plenty of PS360 games, that have scale, the frame rate (you can't say what the fps are, especially considering it's a clip of scenes), the detail, and all like you've mentioned. There are few that combine all in one, but they do exist. As I said this game stands toe-to-toe with the best out there on console, but from what's been shown it's doable on PS360.
Its not Next Gen lol, you Nintendo fanboys really need to quit it and wait for E3 and see what real next-gen looks like. Or get a decent PC.
After seeing that trailer I ordered Xenoblade Chronicles from Amazon (don't tell my wife). I never played it but I guess I'll have to now.
John, this is your wife. I thought about making my name "Wifefight" but it seemed too obvious. I just wanted to tell you that buying Xenoblade was a good decision. You should now walk to where I am and talk openly about it, as if I totally know. If at first I seem confused, don't stop spilling the details, just keep talking about how you bought Xenoblade.
^^ It's a trap!!
Hope you paid your bills......
Haha, yes, bills are paid. I had some left over Amazon gift card money too. It's just that she got me some games for Christmas that I still haven't gotten to. I had been debating for awhile on whether or not to get this game and I'm actually kind of glad this trailer pushed me over the edge. @knifefight If my name were actually John you would have blown my mind :)
Keep these games coming Nintendo! Can't wait for the big three to battle it out at E3! Going to be a great year for gamers.
THIS LOOKS SO AMAZING, I was blown away im like ... nintendo? excited for more in the future.
Finally an interesting looking title for the WiiU. Keep it coming Nintendo.
Looks good, Final Fantasy 13 meets Lost Planet. Another game added to my "reason's why I should get a Wii U" list
oh my god! sooooooooo great! trailer was awesome and graphics and everything!!!
WOW I'm impressed
wow i'm impressed open world exploration , sword and gun mecha !! ( transforming mechas ) in a freaking xenoblade themed world ? that can only be good.
Wow, simply wow. Xenoblade Chronicles was easily one of the better RPG games out there, but was skipped by many who abandoned their Wii's, and was passed over by the awards because it wasn't in HD. Just looking at this trailer alone gets me excited to see more. The sheer scope of this game could be massive, if Xenoblade was any indication of how much bigger this game could possibly be with all that extra space and power at their disposal. Very Impressive!
The most beautiful console Game i've ever seen by a long way. Is the true definition of a system seller. And unlike Xenoblade , coming early in the wiiu's life with HD visuals will boost the sales ten fold. Edit- Guys below - This was an American Nintendo direct , So Monolith softs game is confirmed for Western Release. If it was shown in a Japanese N-direct and Not an American then you might have to wait a year for the localizations. But It looks like they're going for a AAA global release , or at least within a couple of months...
@ Kingof' Thanks for pointing that out- I was starting to get caught-up in the doubt too, wondering if it will hit the U.S. Your edit saved me some "start a petition" time. Thanks for the logic, I would vote "Intelligent" but I accidentally pushed "Interesting" - Both are true.
It looks like Xenoblade meets Monster Hunter meets steroids. Monolith and Retro's games are my most anticipated for the Wii U, and I must say it's already looking good.
I picked it up when I bought my WiiU...liking it so far..I'll attack "The Last Story after"
Yeah, not much else you can say about it other than that.... Nooooo! Don't make me have to buy a Wii U!! Argh, touche Nintendo, touche... You have colored me intrigued, I shall obtain your system...
Where is all the haters at saying the wii u isn't getting games now?XD
:| One new title with no solid ETA. Good for you I guess?
Who said that this is the only game? Wii U is obviously gonna have a good library by years end
You can't win with these kind of people. The problem is not new games or new IPs, the problem is they don't like Nintendo platforms, period.
6 new titles ?
Someone obviously didn't watch the Nintendo Direct if you believe there was only 1 new game announced LOL !!!!
":| One new title with no solid ETA. Good for you I guess?" New 3D Mario, new Zelda, new Smash Brothers, new Mario Kart, new Xenoblades Chronicles, new Yoshie Yarn, HD Zelda update. All of these games are exclusive to the Wii U and the Xenoblade game in particular looks like it will smash any exclusive Microsoft or Sony can release on the current gen consoles. Exciting times for Wii U owners!
"Wii U is obviously gonna have a good library by years end" It already has a good library now, that's just my opinion though.
Yet, I cannot count the number of times I've heard Sony fanboys bring up "The Last of Us" for the PS3 and "Soul Sacrifice" for the Vita. lol.
One? Try three: this game, the Yoshi game, and that Shin Megami Tensei / Fire Emblem crossover. That without mentioning the upcoming Rayman Legends, Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate, Lego City Undercover and Bayonetta 2... all third party games exclusive for the Wii U (and 3DS, in the case of MonHun).
Yeah... Think I'm picking up a wii u now.
Well it wasn't at first... Though that's how it is with just about any system. Looks like things are definitely picking up however!
when will it release? i will buy a wii u on release of this but my feelings say i have to wait some time -_- not convinced of the wii-u yet, but keep it coming...
Grrr i knew it . Nothing has interested me on Wii U so far except the potential from Bayonetta 2 and Monolith . It simply just confirms my purchase at some point
OMG!! can't wait for this! Xenoblade Chronicles was JRPG of the year, IMO.
LOLm someone came through and hit everybody with a disagree. Someone's bitter about Nintendo winning. EDIT: Looks like he has a partner. Sad, sad fanboys lol.
Its a Xeno title... looks super impressive =O
