Xenoblade Could be the Next Big Nintendo Franchise

Nintendo needs new games and they can’t rely on Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon forever. While their games may consistently be a cut above, they will struggle if they’re all we see.

I hope it is a big franchise. Xenoblade for the Wii, even though it was incredibly long, was amazing and I think games like this would help keep a somewhat "hardcore gamer" element to the system. Who knows, it may become as big as some other Nintendo franchises are and help propel system sales. I do know that I am watching this game very closely.

Right there with you. This series could be as big as Metroid or The Legend Of Zelda. I'm extremely excited for the release of Xenoblade Chronicles X.

I hope you meant Zelda ... Metroid honestly is only big with the most hardcore fans.

They will need to do something square does for Final Fantasy ... advertisement .... lots of it.

Im really hyped about this game, but it wont become big on Nintendo platform. Nintendo games are mainly about platforming/adventure.

MSBAUSTX1228d ago

I think that os where the optimism is. Since this isnt the norm for Nintendo it could have this game poised to be their next big one. Splatoon is sitting on the same ledge. They are really trying hard lately to bring us games that arent just platformers.

ot more Xnoblade would be great

Its my favorite game of the past generation. I especially bought a Wii to play this game and Im going to buy a Wii U to play Xenoblade Chronicle X. Cant freakkkking wait! Hope they have some new X info during todays Nintendo Direct :)

As long as your Wii U is hooked up to your hd television vid hdmi cables the Wii U automatically presents Wii games in hd!

As long as they advertise and bring the game worldwide it can become a big franchise for them.

That's pretty much all that needs to happen. The first was so incredibly good it's ridiculous. The fact that the fans had to beg and plead for it to come was crazy. I'm just glad they listened, even if they only brought them over in very limited quantities. I own all 3 games from Operation Rainfall :D

That's the challenge. Outside of the Wii, Nintendo has done a terrible job of advertising since the nineties. Metroid Prime should have been advertised as heavily as Halo for example. It was an amazing game on a super cheap system, and they put almost no effort into pushing it.
