Lets look at why Xenoblade Chronicles X is the JRPG you’re going to need to play when it releases locally.
Monolith is really a god-send for Wii U owners; they're delivering high-quality software that defies the naysayers and their calls of "Weak-U".
Thing is Wii U's lineup has consistently had high scoring hit after hit despite the Wii U so called power gulf vs. PS4 and Xbox One. A;so despite the absence of third parties. Not only that...Wii U's games are COMPLETE and not BUGGY. It's a fine console with a damn fine gaming library. @wonderfulmonkeyman Yep. At least Nintendo and Co. take their time to refine and polish their titles. Going to be a treat for Wii U owners.
Agreed. I was just pointing out that Monolith is doing a fantastic job of offering something new and unique. Wii U doesn't have as many RPG's as I would like it to have, after all.
So...we're just going to pretend Game & Wario doesn't exist? Nintendo screws up just like everyone else. Not to mention the Amiibo shipping BS. Nintendo isn't some godsend. They're an excellent company, but don't act like they're perfect.
i take Xenoblade over FFXV anytime. FFXV smells fishy to me.. Fells like they're hiding its weaknesses behind gorgeous graphics cause we know nothing about this game just yet. After over 6 years it's very weird. Xenoblade is my top anticipated RPG this year. Cannot wait
We're aware, Legion. Nintendo's advertisement efforts and naming sense for recent consoles is more than enough evidence that Nintendo needs some guidance in certain areas. We're just saying that Monolith is doing great things for the company, and that there have been a LOT of screw-ups in third party games lately by comparison.
abzdinne We know as much about the new X as FFXV, we know alot now...like...what more do we need to know other than play the demo ourselves?? I'll make sure to play both of these games anyhow
@Irishguy95 We know close to nothing about FF XV but we know alot about FF XV's demo. Can you tell me how the gameplay works? How do you farm weapon ? About Magic ? About summons classes ? About the size of the map? Do you know more than 1 area of FF XV? Did you see 1 finished town ? Do you know what the story is really about (dont talk me about a J-Pop band or idk what)? Do you know about what we dont know (train station,airspih,weather system,vertical figthing,summoning) ? Next to XCX , we really dont know anything about FF XV. Even after the demo , we wont know as much as XCX informations.
Monolith Soft were always amazing from the beginning delivering and helped developing great games. Xenogears Legend Of Zelda Skyward Sword Xenoblade Chronicles Xenosaga Square should have held on to them. They are amazing.
Square should have stuck to experimental gameplay instead of the over focus towards graphics.
I can't help but get hyped for the game more and more every time I see new information. The recent update to the official website was huge and confirmed character creation that went beyond anything I imagined.
This is one the absolute best write-ups I've ever seen for this game. Well done!!!!
I think this game is going to be one of the best titles of the generation. It just looks like so much fun!
Now Xenoblade X is the "victim" who got bashed 1st by the other (FF XV) ? lol ok. Nice way to start a war then get away when you dont need this war anymore.
As some one else said already I'll take this game over FFXV anytime, 200.000 polygons per char is not enough to replace talent, passion, creativity & a genius mind, in short Tetsuya Takahashi, the creator is the Α & the Ω on a game, crazy visuals can't win over that, this guy always deliver, Xenogears was one of the TOP 3 JRPGs of the PS1 era & my all time favorite game along with FFVII & Xenoblade was the best JRPG of the previous generation, both was his creations, & I have no doubt that this guy will do it again with XCX, this game will become the best JRPG of this generation w8 & see.
I'll take Xenoblade over any of those recent iterations of Final Fantasy anytime. 13 I-III were rubbish in my opinion and I lost any hope for the series. Hopefully FF15 will still be a great game, but I can't say I'm hyped for it. Xenoblade on the other hand really looks promising and I will definitely get it day one.
This and FFXV will be legendary.
I don't see why we have to compare the two they both look to be great games and they both are very different to each other. Personally I am looking forwards to both of them.
That's the best attitude to have. I may be worried about the state of FFXV, but I want both games to be amazing.
I just love how the game actually makes me feel like I'm on an alien planet with just its environments and creatures. There's a feeling of familiarity in the designs, but they're exotic enough to become something completely new. We've all seen the individual inspirations for the massive monsters done to death, we're on Jurassic Park 4 now, but here the package is a breath of fresh air.
While I am sure I will love Zelda/Starfox when they launch, when I bought my Wii U earlier this week I was thinking of one upcoming game; Xenoblade Chronicles X. That is up there, having not played one of their games before, with Batman, Metal Gear, Persona, Uncharted, et cetera, as one *of my most anticipated games. 2015 is going to be excellent.
FFXV has had me rather irritated cause it kept being pushed back to the side for Final Fantasy XIII sequels that should have never happened.I've waited for 9 years and still find it sad how Square can't seem to prioritize things such as knowing that its essential to focus on the big title FF Versus XIII aka FFXV but instead shove Lightning down FF fans throats. Now as it is Xenoblade Chronicles X excites me more than FFXV cause its gonna come out this year unlike FFXV which i swear Squeenix isn't being clear on things. Not to mention Xenoblade Chronicles X has more details announced about it than FFXV which focuses TOO much on graphics unlike Chronicles X which will be better cause of its amazing gameplay and everything else.
