Maybe if Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sells well?
Always good to see more support for the Switch.
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.
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"
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. ...also irrelevant and off topic." 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.
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.
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.
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.
if anything they should bring the first game over, not X. I know it already got a re-release on the New 3DS
cool, i would like them to add surround sound.
One of the games i wanted but never bought as didn't pick up a Wii U. I'd take a Switch version for sure.
i sold my wii u just before it released.
I would buy it
what I need is Xenogears remake
OMG I miss Xenogears. It would be more difficult because Namco own that franchise but Nintendo own the developer. Maybe they can come to an agreement? Hopefully.
Xenogears hd remaster on Switch. And fix all of disc 2 while they're at it.
Xenogears is Square. Xenosaga is Namco.
And Xenosaga, without the pretense that it's only a spiritual precursor(or successor) to Xenogears which just happens to have almost all the exact same lore that was laid down for Xenogears, but the names changed to protect the innocent....from lawsuits from Squresoft. Xenoblade is supposedly a spritual successor as well, but it's a much different formula with only some of the spiritual themes, and none of the actual lore. Xenogears and saga is just a mess of conflicting IP's owned by different companies, where both series went underappreciated by their holding company, and for the most part, passed under the radar of the mainstream gaming consumer. What's funny is Xenogears was the first pitch for FFVII, but Square found it to be too dark. @teh Gears is owned by Square Enix, Xenosaga is owned by Namco. Technically, the two aren't related except Saga being a spiritual successor, however a lot of the lore in saga was laid out as the back story for xenogears years prior in a book written about it. The events in saga would have been the events which lead up to the crash of the ship in the opening of gears. However, they couldn't actually do that because of the IP conflicts, so the creator said they weren't related at all...which I suppose due to some of the changes may be true, but it could easily also be related if you are familiar with the back story of gears. There are some fan pages about it floating around in the archives of the internet, although they do stretch it a bit much. Personally, I'd love to see a remaster of both gears and saga, along with a completion of the saga epic. I doubt it'll happen though, and the creator seems content on just moving forward with xenoblade, which is OK, as it's a fine series, but I still prefer gears or saga.
Ask Square not Nintendo.
Do something with the dreadful in game music (central hub I'm looking at you specifically) and I'll double dip
Lmao personally the central hub music is freakin hilarious to me which is a good thing for me at least. I can see how ppl would hate it tho
You have the right attitude. Over time, it does become comedic, but it pulled me away from my immersion. Thereby explaining my contempt for it. Truth be told though, you have the better approach
Can't write have a remaster of the first one instead? That'd be a dream come true.
Well I personally think they should get a company to bring all of the versions over to the Switch.
Well it's also on Wii U Eshop and N3DS.
True, but a higher resolution/textured version on the Switch would be amazing, and would bring a great game to a new audience.
We understand where the game exist simply that I do not see the benefits to them not bringing it to the switch in fact I've yet to even read a single comment that even State what a possible benefit would be to not bring this title to the switch A switch version could bring more attention to the intellectual property it could also allow Nintendo to get more sales from that game it could also allow a higher resolution and frame-rate along with other graphical features I mean when you look at Zelda and Mario Kart it's not as if Nintendo is afraid to Port. From all the great things I've heard about this game I think would be great for a new audience to get the played especially with how much people did not purchase the Wii U. I truly do not understand why so many people are against something that isn't really going to hurt them but possibly help fund future Xenoblade titles. A port existing is not somehow stopping other games in the series from existing especially considering the technique of porting a game has nothing to actually do with the main core development team. There are teams that specialize in porting that are as low as 10 Developers. Don't see many if any positive benefits to leaving this game on 2 platforms. @Sirk7- agreed
Well they have a guaranteed sell right here. I bought XCX on Wii U but never really played much of it. I got maybe 5 hours into the game. I'd love to give it a try on Switch.
I hope so! Only game that made me want a Wii U.
The smart move would be get that game on all consoles, it's a very good game and if they did that it would sell on all platforms. They should make the decision like capcom have finally done with monster hunter.
Except when u find out Monolith soft is now part of Nintendo and that will never, ever happen.
Why do people keep ignoring this? It happens with Retro Studios as well.
Monolith IS Nintendo. Nintendo fully owns them. They have 2 studios. Tokyo and Kyoto. Kyoto studio helps with Mario Kart,Zelda and such. Tokyo studio does Xenoblade. This is like asking Sony to have Naughty Dog to bring Uncharted to Xbox. Why would they allow 1st party games on competing systems?
If they expand or resolve the cliff-hanger at the end, then I'll definitely buy this again if this turns out to be true.
I'd rather get an HD remaster of Xenoblade Chronicles, to be honest.
Or both. No need to be an either or
I hope so. I never bought a Wii U so I missed out.
Awesome but I would like to see the original Xenoblade Chronicles Remastered for the Switch as well.
