Always good to see more support for the Switch.

_-EDMIX-_402d ago

Wait a minute? Why would they bring the first one over if the second one sells well? Technically speaking it would be cheaper to bring the first one over anyway.

I don't think the success of the second title has any bearing on the possibility of a port of the first.

I believe they're right supported I see no reason to leave software on a platform that failed to sell yet the switch is selling out it just doesn't make sense if they have software on the Wii U that performed well I think it's an amazing idea to bring over all of that software considering the situation.

I mean when you consider it probably takes about half a million dollars to do a port I see no reason to not invest.

I mean logically speaking can anyone even give a benefit to not bringing some of those titles over?

I mean I'm fully expecting titles like Mario maker in some of the more successful Wii U titles to be brought over no questions asked.

I only played a little bit of it on the Wii U imported from Japan, I'm not too sure I would actually purchase this version, but I think it's a wise decision by Nintendo to keep the community together and get excitement for the second game by porting the first especially since lots of people didn't own a Wii U.

Why punish and leave so much opportunity to Great software just because the hardware failed?

Xenoblade Chronicles X is not the first one. It is a completely different beast from Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles II.

_-EDMIX-_402d ago

I see, but still questions why the second would need to do good to port the first.

The cost of porting is so low I don't see the point of not bringing it.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is a spiritual successor, it had no connections story wise from the 1st game, Chronicles II is the true sequel.

Yeah not linked. i could understand them if they said "we would consider doing a remaster of the original xenoblade chronicles if this one is successful"

wonderfulmonkeyman402d ago

Given the fact you're unaware that they aren't linked to the first game, I find it hard to believe your claim of having played it on an imported Wii U.

But aside from that, it is probably because they want to focus on newer titles first and foremost, instead of just the Wii U titles. Though I'd be happiest if they'd strike a balance of that, since so few people bought the Wii U, in the end, compared to other consoles, and thus didn't experience many of its best titles.

" I find it hard to believe your claim of having played it on an imported Wii U"

Played it bud, I don't own it or the Wii U, a friend of mine. I don't own a Wii U.

...also irrelevant and off topic.

"But aside from that, it is probably because they want to focus on newer titles first and foremost, instead of just the Wii U titles"

They can, but "They" likely woudn't even be doing the port, just like Blue Point doesn't do Uncharted 5. They'd just get a team that does ports to bring it over.

Its not a either or.

"Though I'd be happiest if they'd strike a balance of that,"

Agreed. Thats my point. They can do both.

Not an either or. Many didn't own a Wii U, why punish a game based on hardware sales? Bring it to the Switch so the series can get more attention.

I don't even get whats the big deal when more games is better and it would only help the series.

Being "linked" to the first game is irrelevant.

Consider many that don't know that, also might see the "2" as they need to know something about the first.

I just don't see much reason to leave software behind when it can be ported at such little cost.

I mean...I haven't even read a single post that even shows a benefit to not having the game on Switch.

"Played it bud, I don't own it or the Wii U, a friend of mine. I don't own a Wii U.

If it's so irrelevant and off-topic, then don't try to dodge things by ignoring the fact that you brought up your irrelevant play-time of it on a friend's system first.
Practice what you preach or don't complain about others bringing up "irrelevant" points.

"I just don't see much reason to leave software behind when it can be ported at such little cost."
I agree, though I wish you'd have the sense to apply that to third party ports, which probably don't cost much either, yet you seem to be against them 9 times out of 10 due supposedly to costs.

_-EDMIX-_401d ago

Seriously stop making these combative post.

Literally your entire post is trying to argue about points that I've nothing to do with the main point

"though I wish you'd have the sense to apply that to third party ports, which probably don't cost much either, yet you seem to be against them 9 times out of 10 due supposedly to costs"

Well this is a game that's from the Wii U to the Switch.... can you please stop trying to paint everyone's comments as blanket post

Where have you even heard me say that I'm against the concept of a third-party port on the switch?

Again please stop going off topic and making these post looking to be argumentative or combative...

I simply bring up playing the game previously as my own personal experience on whether or not I would purchase a port.... that's it, your comment is irrelevant because it's trying to question the validity of the statement despite it actually being irrelevant whether or not I have or haven't.

Segata401d ago (Edited 401d ago )

Think of Xenoblade 2 as Final Fantasy X-2. Xenoblade X is it's own contained story with a different setting,different world,different characters. They don't even share the same universe.

_-EDMIX-_401d ago

I know.

Those two games not even being in the same universe even further proof that the second game being successful should not have anything to do with whether or not the first comes to the switch.

It should come regardless.

Mind you I'm not actually sure why people keep spamming that my comment actually States nothing about two of the titles being connected.

"Maybe if Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sells well?"

The point I'm actually making is simply that it would make more sense to Simply port it regardless of how successful Xenoblade 2 is.

Mean after all if you're telling me they're not even connected to the same universe and their seene as independent titles, that kind of goes in support of what I'm trying to say.

Once again so we're completely clear, nowhere in my regional post am I even making that statement based on whether or not those titles are connected or not.

I'm simply saying the success of the second title should have very little to do with the possibility of porting Xenoblade Chronicles X.

We can have both.

Neonridr401d ago

if anything they should bring the first game over, not X. I know it already got a re-release on the New 3DS

Eldyraen402d ago (Edited 402d ago )

jamstorr86402d ago
