I wonder what made them change their mind? "Monado" was planned to come here...

mike1up4428d ago

No clue. My only guess is that they thought it wouldnt sell. Which is wrong, because it would have (i wouldve bought this and Last Story).

I do have a feeling that we will see a sequel on the WiiU.

i just don't get why they can't just give us the u.k. or australia version and put it on a u.s. disc so it reads on are wii's?it drive's me crazy that wii's 2 best exclusive rpgs won't be coming here.thats just a dumb decision if you ask me.

I liked the Xenoblade X formula. It takes awhile, but opening up Mechs was amazing. Especially once you can fly them, and use them in battle. You have to put some time into the game to do it, but it's worth it!

Also, the graphics were more realistic than the other games. Still looks good today, just a lot more pop-in than is acceptable today, hell even too much for back then. It wasn't game breaking though.

Me being a Playstation guy and a huge JRPG fan, I can say that the only franchises I actually miss that are on Switch are The Fire Emblem series and The Xenoblade Chronicles series. I've played neither but I've heard good things. I've seen people play Xenoblade Chronicles games on youtube, and it seems like they think it's a big deal so I'm curious.

As someone who doesnt like jrpg’s that much these days I went into Xenoblade Chronicles blind and had a blast. Reminded me of that golden age of 16-bit and 32-bit jrpgs. If thats the era you liked then it should hit the spot.

I only have a Switch for the games that don’t come on PlayStation . There aren’t a ton but there are some good ones.

I agree with top 1, for me xenoblade chronicles 3(and 2) is one of the greatest jrpg to date. It's like the feeling of playing ff7 on ps1 for the first time again. Imagine if XC3 was done with ps5 graphics, that will be magical. I might get the xc remaster before the year ends or after I got the platinum trophy of GoW ragnarok.

jznrpg363d ago

I didn’t care for 2 as much . It’s good but 3 is sooo much better than so is the first one imo .

repsahj363d ago

yeah I agree, but much better than any recent jrpg releases.
