Nintendo Financial Results Briefing says Monolith Soft’s X isn’t leaving Japan in 2013

Nintendo's Financial Results Briefing for the Nine-Month Period Ended December 2012 has Monolith Soft's X listed for a 2013 release in Japan, but doesn't show it appearing in North America or Europe in the near future. (Monolith Soft, Nintendo, Wii U)

was expecting this unfortunately, by 2014 the PS4/720 would have been out for over a year and interest will be lost in this game Nintendo don't have time on their hands.

It took several years for Monolith to make Xenoblade and now they are going to make their X game in a year??

Why not, Xenoblade Chronicles came out three years ago in Japan. They've obviously spent more than two years on it.
Ult iMate  +   1033d ago
Oh. In that case I'm sure they will make a good game. I liked Xenoblade.

No it doesn't.

Even in Japan the game is listed as TBD rather than 2013. The list is off, anyhow. It doesn't list, for example, Resident Evil: Revelations for Wii U in the U.S. even though it's been confirmed for release here. Nor does it list Rayman Legends.

For those concerned of the game's global release, Nintendo announced it during a global new games Nintendo Direct preview. The trailer shown had English names as opposed to Japanese ones. It's coming here. It was already announced for release here.

That Monolith Soft's game sure reminds me of Noctis traversing FF Versus world. Hmn....just like Pandora's Tower

Well I wanted to play this sadly it's about the only Wii U game I find worth looking forward to at the moment. I care more about the fact there is nothing being said about it being release outside of Japan.

Wind Waker will be great sure but it's not like I haven't played the crap out of that already is all I am saying. Personally I don't even find that Yoshi game interesting, just seems like yet another poorly rehashed version with new textures.

Sucks this is coming out so late and that there is no talk about it even releasing outside of Japan. I know many Wii U's fans in NA or EU will flip their lids if this game does not come to NA or EU. I know I will be a little disappointed also considering it's the only game on the Wii so far that has impressed me yet.

Also considering Nintendo has to be jack asses about unlocking their systems for different regions makes it even worse if it's only released in Japan. Only Japan will be playing the game because the damn systems are region locked.

There's been no talk of it being released in Japan either. There's been no release talk at all. We don't even know what it's called. Let's just wait for E3 before we become disappointed.

As now not maybe, but release dates and announcements happen all the time.

Games like these usually take a year to localize so I never expected it to be here in America this year. I would of been surprised if it did.

Looks great. I dont like the face that was flashed since the third person body shown looked realistic instead of an anime face.

I hope this is a great game and I hope this destroys the Final Fantasy series. It's been going down hill so much that I'm sick of it.

I was hoping for that game to be released this year but I saw this coming. Will we have to do Operation Rainfall 2 so we can get this game?

Not in 2013. So we'll probably get it in 2014.

It was listed for 2013 Japan because it'll get released there first, and then they'll have to translate and localise. So, 2014 for us, I reckon.
