Have a look at this. It’s some gameplay from Monolith Soft’s Wii U RPG, which is still going by the placeholder name of X at the moment.
Looks great...reminded me of Xenogears when he entered the mech. I think this is the closes thing we'll get to Xenogears.
Yep... Ex Square Soft employees know how to do the job.
This game can't come out soon enough. This will be the reason I buy a WiiU, just need a firm release date before I buy the console.
Mostly Tetsuya Takahashi. Looks amazing but still a million years behind Xenogears IMO.
i agree about the mech but thats sbout the only thing that impressed me. is it just me or does this gameplay look kinda static. I mean c'mon there are mmorpgs coming out with better looking combat... if this is nintendos ace in the box then i fear for them as i would rather play monster hunter 3 ultimate which, even on 3ds, looks more engaging then this outdated uneventful ff13 esque menu button fighter.The visuals are about the only thing that it has going for me. this is an opinion and i am entitled to have one. however if you have unbiased input im more than happy to listen
@young juice the combat in this game is based on Xenoblade, if you ever played that game you'll know how deep and fun the combat is, it's far from mindless button mashing. not to mention the game is being created by people with some of the best track records in VG history, Takahashi worked on FF6, Xenogears/Saga/Blade, the story is gauranteed to be nothing short of amazing, unlike ff13.
His creations and skill have little to do with Square, or else he wouldn't have quit after making 1 game with them. What you are seeing is the fruit of his own effort. Square has nothing to do with it.
@mohuzas i hope youre right cus wii u needs a saving grace. the stakes are too high for one of the most promising games on the console to bomb because of underdeveloped and bland gameplay
Lets just hope nintendo make more copys of this and not what they did with xenogears and make very few copys and dont put it up digitally! So if I wanted to find a copy now it would cost £80/$133... USED!
Damn... That is alot...
Except it's available digitally now, right? And I thought the price went down when they reprinted it as greatest hits right before Xenosaga Episode 1 came out.
Not in europe :( Usa got a reprint I think
Still looks beautiful, even unedited. Not sure about the combat, but I haven't played Xenoblade (shame on me), the combat looks similar to that, and everyone praised that game to high heaven so I'm sure the combat is great when you're in control.
Some games just look lackluster when you only watch them and not controling them, but when you try it for yourself then you know where you are with the game. Do you like it or do you hate it when you try it out...
I'm definitely expecting to enjoy it. Xenoblade didn't get all those great reviews for nothing :)
Exactly, I know a lot of people, I showed Diablo2 and Diablo 3 and they said, you get hyped for that? Then they played it themselves and after that, they didnt want to let me play anymore, beause it is that addictive^^I bet here it is the same :D
The combat was one of the worst parts about Xenoblade. I have no idea why it is being widely acclaimed.
Need! Day one.
That scream when he uses the Gears mini-gun XD.......
They are called Dolls
Xenobalde was one of the best RPGs I have played in a long time. I can't wait for this, it is currently my #1 anticipated announced Wii U game.
Would you mind to explain to me the battle system? Because I really don't understand how it works.
Watch a youtube video on the xenoblade battle system, it's based on that so that will help you understand.
looks like a last gen game and a throwback rpg. Nothing real innovative there but decent. I dont own a Wii U but was gonna get one to keep my girl occupied when im on Ps4. Still havent found a reason to buy a Wii U yet besides Mario. SMFH
RPGs do not have to push graphics to be innovative. The Xenoblade battle system was quite fun. The graphics for this game look great to be honest. Xenoblade had some massive environments, and the game actually looked quite good. I'm excited for PS4 RPGs but I doubt that any of them will be as fun as this game, even if more eye candy.
I own a PS4. I have to ask you. What are YOU playing right now? Last I checked there are no HUGE must have tittles. Sure the PS4 will get them but to say the Wii U has NO must have games then you must not be much of a gamer at all. Your telling me games like Monster Hunter Ultimate, Lego City, LoZ Wind Wake HD, Super Mario 3D World, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 and soon to be Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze are not must have games then I don't know what a triple A must have is then.
Whoa, calm down everyone has an opinion. Wii U has some great games, but honestly. You are not going to convince someone who says he's getting his girl a Wii U. That's code for I want a Wii U but can't admit it because I'm too cool. Chill man, the PS4 and Wii U both occupy space under my TV and should your's too.
Tbh and although I'm thoroughly sick of it, aside from Wind Waker, I rather mindlessly play KZ: SF's multiplayer daily than any of those Wii U titles. A lot of it's obviously a matter of preference but AAA is hardly an indication of quality, let alone relative to how someone else experiences a game. I myself do not enjoy Mario games and Smash Bros gets old quickly, don't have nostalgia for Metroid, etc. That said, having owned a Wii when I was just a filthy casual gamer that initially liked the motion controls, I'm stoked for X and will definitely buy a Wii U for this and Zelda U only to later sell it at the inevitable loss or give it to my sister, that's unless Nintendo can develop or secure some more decent quality RPGs like it did towards the end of the Wii's life. I just hope that with the apparent introduction of co-op into X that it doesn't detract from the plot.
The graphics are super great for a MMORPG, you dont know, what you are talking about^^
The graphics in FINAL FANTASY XIV are super great these are good though
Except X isn't a MMORPG.
Its not a mmo
The fighting system looks like it and they hired a lot of people for online infrastructure. I mean, they never said, it will be, but all they did, sure pointed in that direction. And they also never said it wont be. And then the Name only being X, like they dont want to make it a normal Xenoblade or a normal sequel. I am pretty sure, this will be a MMORPG. Especially if you look at how huge the map is, it looks a lot like a map, where a lot of people play at the same time.
Chrischi: the world was HUGE in Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii. And that wasn't a MMORPG, either. X's combat system is pretty much the same as Xenoblade. So far, we haven't gotten any indication this will be an MMO. However, there's the possibility this game will include online play, due to the "Player 1, 2, 3, 4" tags seen in trailers, along with what appears to be a chat box.
name a better rpg? this game does not look last gen wth lol ur a fanboy with ps4. i only game im looking forwerd on ps4 is ff versus and we have yet to see real gameplay just tech stuff that they lie and say is gameplay. and if that is gameplay then the game is mainly a movie. unlike ff versus this game shows reaaaal gameplay.
Valkrya Chronicles (spelling it worg "SORRY")PS3 Xenoblade WII The Last story WII Nino Kuni PS3 Nier PS3 were all great examples of excellent RPG's from last gen. Two of them were on wii from a technical and innovation stand point both Xenoblade and The Last Story are superior. Think what you want but both these games came out on Wii and managed to do more then most PS3 or Xbox 360 RPG's.
Why do you head it and end it with Sony in the majority? There were far more great RPGs on the Wii than those. Those were just major end of the console life RPGs on the Wii and only a few of them. You left out Pandora's Tower and Earth Seeker.
ark rise of fantisa was good too!
If you're gonna make such a claim, you should back it up with some examples, don't you think?
go play the above mentioned games and you will have your example. and to all the others yes Pandora's Tower was great but I never played Ark Rise of Fantisa or Earth Seeker.
So... in other words, you've got nothing.
Hicken.. These are games and as games go if you really want to see how good they are you have to play them. You can look at the all the videos and pictures in the world but like traditional books if you want to experience whether they are good or bad you must read them yourself. I would like to also point out that I own over 150 titles between the ps3, wii, wii u and ps4 and of the games I own Xenoblade has impressed me the most from both a story telling perspective and a technical perspective. Like Rouge Galaxy on the PS2 it has managed to only to push the limits of the wii hardware but it has created an RPG like no other. Your search for proof is narrow minded. Play the games and you will have your proof.
Hopefully the limited edition of X will feature a mech figurine that joints are movable. Alas, I'm just dreaming.
Looks so confusing, but absolutely awesome. Ex Square employees, so sad they left :( It's like a really (really) fast paced White Knight Chronicles.
From what I've heard of the Xenoblade battle system, it's less confusing when you're playing. Videos, when you've had no experience with that battle system, don't do it justice.
if this game is just half as good as xenoblade im happy i loved xenoblade even gave my brother my original wii to play xenoblade because he seen me play it and wanted to try it, now hes hooked and he doesnt even like the wii.
Let's just hope they give us a HD video and give us a closer look at the battle system.
I'm thinking its like Borderlands with regards to its online capabilities. Although I hope that doesn't mean we don't have an actual party.
