Nintendo first introduced Xenoblade to the world under the title Monado: Beginning of the World. We know why Nintendo renamed it Xenoblade for Japan, but where did Monado come from?
The updated official site gives us a clue. See the menu bar? The circled option says Shinken Monado or God Sword Monado in English. Perhaps, Monado is the name of the pink blade the hero carries. The prologue explains two gods Kyoshin and Kishin are frozen after a battle. People now live on both gods, but continue to wage war.
Also seen on the home page are controller options. You can play Xenoblade with a remote/nunchuck combo or a Classic Controller. Japan gets Xenoblade sometime this spring. Nintendo still hasn’t announced a release date for North America.
