Everything we know about Monolith Soft's Wii U JRPG

Monolith Soft's upcoming Wii U JRPG might not have a title just yet, but based on the game's mech-filled trailer, it's undoubtedly a new entry in the Xeno franchise. There's no word yet on any sort of release date, and we're hoping we won't have to fight to see a Western release as we did for Xenoblade Chronicles.

So, what do we know about the unnamed game? Well, lots of things, actually, the most important of them being that it might be an MMO. After rewatching the trailer several times, GamesRadar has highlighted every last interesting detail they could find. Here's what they have come up with... (Monolith Soft, Wii U, Xenoblade Chronicles)

An MMO...?

Well, as long as it can be played off line, doesn't require a subscription.

I really hope it's not an MMO. Online co-op? Heck yeah, sign me up. But I want a good single player story too.

Im guessing its more like Online Co-op. They are assuming that just because you are "meeting" someone on the chat screen, its an MMO. As if online co-op cannot be done with strangers....

I seriously doubt its an MMO

I think there's online multiplayer, but it's not an MMO.

That was a great breakdown analysis. There was quite alot going on in the video and some stuff I missed, like the aerial attacks and the Mech name "Doll". I cant wait, this game is going to be really amazing. Now all we need is to find out what Retro and Mistwalker are working on and the hype train will be in full effect.

It looks friggin amazing!!!.

Seriously though we know very little atm, but I think we can all agree if its anything like Xenoblade chronicles it's going to be awesome.

Looks more like Monster Hunter than an MMO to me. Hopefully its the former because i dont think that people want an MMO thats plagued with micro transactions or subscription fees.

Whats impressive about the video is the draw distance i never seen anything like that on the last generation of consoles.

actually there are some areas of xenoblade with even larger scope, so im guessing this is just the beginning of what we can expect of this game

It would be funny if all the characters returned looking older except for Melia, whose lifespan is a lot longer.

I think it's very different from Xenoblade, but inherits a few things from it.
