Here's When You'll Get A Skell In Xenoblade Chronicles X

Xenoblade Chronicles X has a feature that allows players to obtain and fly various mechs known as “Skells”. Just don’t count on gaining access to a Skell right away. Speaking with IGN, senior director and chief creative officer Tetsuya Takahashi said that it takes about 30 hours before mechs become accessible.

The story is too old to be commented.

Was it Kotaku who said it took them 70 hours? Idk which I like better tbh. Getting the mech sooner or having a longer game...

Ah that not a big deal.

I be playing for a long time I wont even realize I have it in two days.

XD Planning on no sleep for two days straight to get it asap?

Me, I get the feeling it might take me even longer.
I'll be so busy hunting for new locations to set probs down in, fighting new monsters, and building up the reputations of the various factions for new gear to become available, that I'll likely be doing story missions only once I'm forced to use a Skell to reach what's left of the probe markers and hidden locations.
At least in the first continent, anyways.
By the time I'm done tracking down new areas and finishing quests, I'll likely be rich enough to comfortably buy and outfit SEVERAL Skells, and all before I've even started on the mission needed to earn them.XD

Ah, speaking of which, what are you going to name your Skell?

I've already decided on mine: Trail Blazer.
It fits with the overall theme of the game: you're one of the brightest hopes of the now-endangered remains of Humanity, and your first priority is to explore and better understand this new homeworld.
You're tasked with laying down a new "trail" for Humanity's future through endless exploration and fearless combat.

I felt it's only appropriate that my first mech's name embody the vision of this game's theme.

December 4th gives me enough time to finally beat xenoblade on the Wii, put over 150+ hours into it trying to complete all the side quests!
