It has now sold higher than all Xenosaga games, Xenogears, as well as both the other Xenoblade games.
And it's their best game ever made. A lot of passion went to it. Getting a lot of artist from difference areas. Square Enix, Namco, Hentai, Anime and Manga artist. Putting a lot work into the Soundtrack.
You’ll hardly find a lot of people who’ll say Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is better than Xenoblade Chronicles 1 or Xenogears
Wow. Just think about the sort that would say xenoblade 2 is better than xenoblade 1 or that xenoblade 2 is monoliths best game. You can have preferences but you have to be a fanatic to say such rubbish. Nintendo wont get a lot of amazing games because there are just a lot of freaks that will cheer on rubbish so Nintendo devs don't have to try hard or do much. The fanatics will celebrate amazing sales for rubbish games not realizing that the devs will likely release another rubbish game
I think Xenoblade 2 is better than Xenogears and Xenoblade 1
"Hardly" is an exaggeration; I've run into plenty who love it just as much as either of those you listed.
@JaguarEvolved Except Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is not a rubbish game. If you want to debate where it would be ranked among Monolith Sorts games that's fine, but don't claim the game is on par with the shovelware.
Never understood the praise xenogears gets, it feels VERY unfinished
As a fan of those I will say it is.
@Jaguar "You can have preferences but you have to be a fanatic to say such rubbish." One of the stupidest statements I've heard in a while. lol
Xenoblade 2 is not even close to Xenogears or Xenosaga, never played Xenoblade 1 or X so maybe it's better than those, but I was pretty disappointed in it. (My fault, haven't played a Monolith game since XS3, didn't know how much they've changed.) Of course that's just my opinion.
Not having played the first Xenoblade means that a lot of what happens in 2 is going to go right over your head. You really should have played the first one first.
Great news and fantastic game! We want more Monilith...please.
I am so happy this game hit big for them. I want more games that embrace that anime/waifu love like this from them. This type of content could have easily been censored to the point of being ruined.
I wouldn't call it "great" news. It's pretty depressing, for me at least, that this is their best selling game at only 1.31 million. All their games, the Xenoblade ones especially, deserve so many more sales.
After 20 years it’s nice to see the Xeno series finally find a big commercially successful single entry
Woooo loving that Monolith success
Gotta pick this up later. Just got my Switch, Loving Bayonetta 2 and LoZ: Breath of the Wild.
If you're looking for some good indie games, check out SteamWorld Dig 2, Celeste, Golf Story, and Voez(if you like touch rhythm games).
Just a little add-on-side-note: Voez did an update not too long ago that enables buttons and sticks for inputs too, so you can play it on the TV now.
I like the game alot so I'm very happy with this news.
We love success. I need more xeno games in my life.
It really is a great game. On New Game+ atm. Glad to hear that sales were great!
That's awesome for them. Now imagine if it were on multiple consoles how the sales would look.
Port begging first party games? Lol
Do you spend your time wondering how god of war would sell on xbox one?
No, I own all the consoles and buy the exclusives that I want to play as I am a gamer first and foremost. I just like to further support the developers and know that the encouragement and sales would be higher with more exposure.
Then you should understand that a first party studio owned by nintendo wont release its games on other plataforms
Considering how badly none-Nintendo gamers slammed it? Probably not too much different, honestly. I'm sorry, but the only time I ever see these kinds of arguments being made is when someone is trying to low-key a "it's not that great because it's not on [insert system here]" sort of statement.
Either that or they are just down playing the game or success because it's not on the platform that you see them the most upbeat about or for some other reason. You'll notice they never say these kind of things about games on certain systems. As like I said earlier, the exact same thing sentiment can be made for any and every game out there. Including PC ones as well. It honestly just comes off like BS and very disingenuous. CrystalFantasy20h ago Generic RPG only sold because there is literally nothing else on the desert known as the Switch. Lmao man, someone's a little triggered over Switch games having success.
You do know that the same can be said for ANY freaking game out there in existence and that they are also first party right? I mean while you're at it, let's list & talk about how much better infamous, Ori & The Blind Forest, SF5, Ryse, bloodborne & countless others could have done and/or benifitted if they were on other consoles as well.
Well deserved, the game is fantastic.
It seems that every Switch exclusive games sell very well. This is good for us consumers as it means Nintendo will invest even more in exclusive games from now on, if they haven’t done that already.
I thought Monolift Soft made Shadow of Mordor and War. Or am I missing something here.
This is monolith soft, you are thinking about monolith productions, its confusing
Ah that explains it then. Yeah it can get confusing rather easily.
Generic RPG only sold because there is literally nothing else on the desert known as the Switch.
You know, except for mario, zelda, mario kart- oh wait, your opinion is retarded. Let us know like a year and a half from now whether GoW ever reached 10 million units sold, like odyssey did in six months. Numbers I've seen so far show it selling half as well as labo. But then sony's own games rarely ever sell.
Looking as your SN, I think you should know that Crystal is slang for meth. Which is what you have to be on, if you actually believe that opinion you're spouting so carelessly.
Amazing game and my favorite on Switch.
Thats good news.. I want to see more of their work
People constantly trying to compare a game from 1998. With a game releasing in 2018 should tell you everything you need to know.About who is trying to measure up to whom. This company is nothing like the team that created Xenogears. Yet with those 4 letters people constantly think some how they are comparable in the slightest. More and more people seem to lack the ability to simply enjoy their game. Without trying to drum up some comparison to something that is vastly different and 20 years apart just let it go.
Yes, the games have nothing in common
