A Tour Of Kyjoin Or A Ticket To The World Of Xenoblade

By Spencer . May 6, 2010 . 10:50am

Xenoblade takes place on two frozen gods. The characters you’ll be controlling, Shulk and the portly mascot, live on Kyojin. More specifically, the soldiers from Colony 9 live on one of Kyojin’s legs. As you play through the game, you move through Kyojin and eventually climb up to its back where the Elto Sea and Makuna Primeval Forest are.



Kyojin may have the most arborous legs in the history of video games…

    I sure do like this game’s environments. Gimme a lot of giant monsters to fight and this’ll be a day one purchase.

      I know eactly what you mean mate. I was like “well, the world looks gorgeous, the giant monsters look interesting. Actually looking forward to- holy sh*t, did he just jump off that insanely tall cliff?! Hope he hits the sea at least…”

      • MrRobbyM

        Man, all this adventuring is tiring! Time to cool off… CANNON BALL! *leaps off cliff*

      My thoughts exactly!
      I was a bit skeptical at first because the character graphics are ugly, but I always dig RPGs with lots of exploration so I’m interested in this one now.
      I wonder if we will be able to explore the other god as well. It would be cool if both massive gods were explorable.
      Non-random battles (or at least that’s how it looks to me) are also welcome.

      • MrRobbyM

        Yeah, battles are definitely not random. I wasn’t so sure about this game until I saw this video. I sure do love me some exploration. I like the feeling of a big, open world with varying environments. Leaves a lot to the imagination.

    World is beautiful

  • Remember that episode of Futrama when Bender became God? This game is that episode only not funny.

    • Pesmerga00

      Bender: “I was God once.”
      God: “Yes, I saw. You were doing well until everyone died.”

  • Pesmerga00

    Wow! This game is looking better and better. I love large explorable environments. The character models however leave something to be desired. I can live with them though, the huge areas make up for it. And as others have mentioned, a big YES for the ability to jump.

  • Pesmerga00

    BTW. The official site has been updated with quite a bit of info.

    http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wii/sx4j/ Check the SYSTEM and WORLD tabs.

    Some info I quickly scraped together.(Feel free to correct me)

    Day/Night system, that you can manually change.(NPC’s/Quests change depending on time) Warp system. Low loading/Seamless Areas. Damage from big falls. And the ability to Save anywhere.
