Monado was first seen in an NOA press pack after E3 2009 and came out in Japan in 2010 as Xenoblade. Apparently they started work on it in 2007.

If they started work on X immediately after Xenoblade that means they've nearly had three years on it. I wouldn't be surprised if this was an early 2014 release in Japan. As for the western release... well it was shown in all three Nintendo Directs and they had bothered to translate the trailers so hopefully they're aiming for a much closer international release.

Funny how they show X in an American/western N direct and people say ''when they announce this for america if it's ever localized''

Everything in that Nintendo direct should be here within a Year from now roughly apart from Zelda which will take 1.5-2 years from now.

What's very interesting about this Game is if they manage to combine the Graphical fidelity shown with a Game that is the Same size or even bigger than Xenoblade chronicles 1.

If they manage to improve on what they shown visualy (which is inevitable) and pull that off in a Xenoblade chronicles sized game , You're looking at a SUPER IMPRESSIVE game if you will.

Just wow these graphics so early on in WiiU's lifespan is incredible.

On and all this finally a WiiU game that catches my attention rubbish or i have to buy a WiiU now rubbish makes me laugh what did you think Nintendo would do release no system sellers ?

Pikimin3 looks utter gorgeous if you can't see that your outright blind the close up shots are amazing the textures are Nextgen that the ps3 can only dream of and in that resolution with proper Anti alaising and colour ect.

Lego City Undercover.
Beyonetta2.
Windwaker HD.
Aliens CM.
Mariokart.
Mario world.
Zelda.
MH3 Ultimate.

ect all make WiiU attractive to proper core gamers.

Yea this really looks preety badass. I'm still hoping we here more about it soon. It don't matter to me which consul jrpgs get release on as long as they get released in the states. Nintendo has a good one again from the looks of it.

Finally, a wiiU game that catches my attention!
This jrpg looks very promising if the in game graphics end up looking like this trailer or better when it comes out!

What you mean the only game? Have you seen Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate?

Take notes, Square.
lilbroRx  +   529d ago
As much as like this game and as much as I would like Square to start making better game, I would rather Square not do it by copying other companies.

What the industry and Square need is more originality and creativity. We need less of the same old, same old.
Godmars290  +   529d ago
At one time Square owned Monolith, so yeah, there's that...

this game looks like if Monster Hunter and Armored Core had a baby.
Old McGroin  +   529d ago
Makes me damn excited for a Wii U Monster Hunter that takes advantage of the tech like this X does.
Qrphe  +   528d ago
Honestly, I'm not into the whole coop fighting from PSO that has been smeared onto this game. But I'll be fair and judge that aspect once they actually show something about this game.
metroid32  +   526d ago
Anyone that doubted the wiiu graphics take serious note these are incredible graphics on a 1st gen game.

I am like the MMO Hud. It reminds me of WoW.

It looks like this one could have Internet connection and have the Drop-in-Drop-out Multiplayer.

Honestly, I would love for this to be a MMORPG- I just want to see what Nintendo could bring to the genre.

I know its a long shot but maybe just maybe sony will see they need to think about an rpg of there own again with the growing populary again of jrpgs. (looking at you legend of the dragoon) I'd love to see this show up at E3. One way or the other gamers win with xenoblade 2.

Just curious: this game has been called Xenoblade 2 since its reveal. Did I miss something? I mean, there ARE similarities between what we've seen and Xenoblade, and it IS being made byt he same developer. But is that enough to call it, definitively, that game's sequel?

By the way, more games like this will DEFINITELY get me to get a Wii U.

the main character in that trailer looks a bit like the one from the FF13 versus trailer?
RFornillos4  +   529d ago
the online features just make sense considering that Monolith Soft at one time posted job listing for people with experience in online multiplayer or MMOs.

and yeah, this looks to be a promising game.
