In a press release, Nintendo confirmed that Xenoblade Chronicles X has been delayed to 2015. They describe the game like this: “A terrible intergalactic war leaves just a handful of Earth survivors trying to live in a beautiful yet hostile environment.”

    T_T To many 2015 here. But Bayonetta is going to save me here.^_^

  • flameraver64

    Really hoping that 2015 is a US release date

    • Anewme…Again

      Most likely. they wouldn’t announce that on E3 if it wasn’t the date for the us release.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    2015 is going to be a banner year for Nintendo in the west. Mon Hun 4 U, X, SMT x FE (maybe if not cancelled), Red Steel…erm Devil’s Third, Smash Bros. Wii U, etc. My wallet waits in anticipation.

    • flameraver64

      Doubt SMTxFE is coming out next year, there’s still 0 info on it. And Smash Bros is 2014.

      But damn, Zelda U, MH4U, X are all awesome

  • revenent hell

    Characters look kind of stiff and plastic-y on my end so I hope they refine that a bit but overall I look forward to this games release.

    • SolRevr

      Yeah, they look a little PS2-y with their drab skin tones and lifeless faces, but yes I might have to buy a WiiU now between this and Zelda.

      • Aaron K Stone

        It seems to be the result of having Kunihiko Tanaka as the character designer after all he did work on saga.

    • Aemette

      I was actually more hyped with the previous trailer they showed a while back… I too hope they improve on those graphics :/

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I’m not the only one who think it looks like PSO2? am I?

    • 하세요

      In the beginning I too thought it was PSO2. “The fuck, of all platfor- THIS ISN’T EVEN A THING IN JAPA- oh okay cool. Phew.”

  • Sentsuizan_93

    So a spiritual successor to Xenoblade? I’m cool with this~
    2015 is gonna be big for Wii U…

  • Ethan_Twain

    Blah, this trailer is not exciting. Just a lot of anime mechs and characters doing normal mecha anime things. This could be a Xenosaga game or a Phantasy Star game or a Star Ocean game.

    What made Xenoblade Chronicles unique cool was the massive areas and the freedom of exploration, as well as all the little rewards tucked away for poking your nose around everywhere. This trailer doesn’t show any of that. Meh.

    • mojack411

      I think that’s because the previous two trailers we got already showed a lot of that open world exploration but no story. This trailer showed what the story and characters will be like since we hadn’t seen that yet.

      • iamtehultimatepwnage .

        really ? i cant remember a trailer which showed a lot of the open world of the game unfortunately

        • goa ahsd

          last year

          • iamtehultimatepwnage .

            ok, thx i will look for it :)

        • mojack411

          And also from a Nintendo Direct a while back.

          • iamtehultimatepwnage .

            alright, thx i will try to find it!

      • Ethan_Twain

        That’s fair. We hadn’t really gotten a taste of anime melodrama in a trailer yet. Maybe I was overly harsh. I just assumed that was going to be in the game because it’s a Xeno game and that’s what Xeno games do. But it hadn’t been in a trailer yet so it’s fair to do a story trailer.

        • mojack411

          Check out the Live at Treehouse stream. They’re showing gameplay and exploration right now!

          • Suicunesol

            OMG how am I missing this?!!!

          • mojack411

            GET GOING SON!

      • Lukas Meza

        finally! someone with good sense

    • Guest

      but xenoblade lacked puzzles mini games treasure unique transporation etc

    • Suicunesol

      Check our the gameplay being shown on Treehouse right now! There’s your exploration!

  • MaximDualBlade

    The concept seems fun.

    I hope they polish the mechs battles and that they focus on the sci-fi aspect. I want mystery, I want choices, I want to say “Oh shit, they actually killed everybody” or “what the hell is that?!”. Not just the usual human vs human

    Edit: Also enemies who aren’t mindless monster and have some motivation would be well received. I want to hate them, but understand them.

    • goa ahsd

      nah jrpgs arent about freedom of choice. tehy hardly use that concept. you are already on a pre set path with set protagonist. just ride along. and huamn vs human conflict is the best type of conflict. a grounded approach adds more layers of grey and black than just evil fantasy guy vs chosen heroes until random twist appears out of nowhere for shock value

  • SetzerGabbiani

    As massive as this game looks to be, I’m not going to complain about graphical quality. I want to hear more about the story and see more actual gameplay.

  • Godmars

    Looks to be more than interesting enough to be worth the wait.

    And if not then the art books should pay off…

  • Alexander Marquis Starkey

    Anyone else thought Code Geass? I might just be on a big Code Geass kick right now, but I saw Code Geass.

  • Tenetan

    Was it really delayed? Last time it was shown had 2014 release date for Japan, NA and EU had no date set at all. Then again maybe it was delayed in Japan but saw no info about that so far.

  • goa ahsd

    im kinda confused as to how this fits into xenoblade. is it a sequel prequel. what… earth wasnt even in xb. where did all these races come from and exploring other planets there were others. help me how is this xb2

  • Ahhh.. Can’t wait for 2015! As long as the graphics look decent, and the story line is extremely well crafted I will be content with this release :)

  • Lukas Meza

    it looks totally awesome, stop complaining for the faces and look at the huge picture, as someone who finished xenoblade i can say to yall, THIS GAME IS GONNA ROCK!

  • This looks soooo good! I was hoping someone would show off a good JRPG, and I was not disappointed. Can’t wait for 2015 for this one =)

  • Aristides

    I’ve been disillusioned @[email protected] what is up with those character models. I’m sure it’s gonna be a great game but seriously they gotta improve those character models…

  • GamerLegend

    2015! sad, happy(rpgs for vita coming soon, so won’t have time), yet still sad. Hopefully Xenoblade Chronicles X and Persona 5 are release far apart to keep me entertained.

  • Kornelious

    X is a Xenoblade SEQUEL!? YESSSSSS!!!! :D……………..

    Ok ok I’m cool now. It looks pretty awesome and the graphics look amazing, I thought at first that this might take place before the events of Xenoblade (Those of you who watched the ending know what I’m talking about) But then I saw Tatsu, So It looks like it takes place a while after the original…….Either way I AM HYPED! I’ve never been more glad to won a Wii U!!
    I just, I just…………………………..

  • Kornelious

    Kinda sucks about the delay, But if it means that it will make the overall game experience better (especially since its a Xenoblade title) then I am A-OK. The wait shall be worth it! :D

  • Guilherme Matheus Silva

    Someone else heard Bionis’ Japanese name in the end of the trailer?

  • Firekitty

    Yay, there’s Nopon!!!

    Seriously, this looks amazing…I just hope that the protagonist is actually a fully realized character, even though you can customize them. A silent protagonist would be difficult in the sort of epic, overwrought storyline I’m accustomed to getting out of Takahashi..

  • Hopefully they release the first game on the Eshop or something, because last time i checked it was 100 dollars used everywhere. Also I would have to buy a wiimote for my wiiU.

  • Okay, since no one else seems to be discussing it, I’m going to be talking about Hiroyuki Sawano’s track that was in the trailer. Oh My Gosh! I love Sawano’s work and am above the moon to be hearing his music in this game.

    The track that was playing in this video was obviously his work and it was great! Add in what he did with the trailer shown last E3 and I can’t wait to be ordering a copy of this soundtrack.

  • Ridho Siregar

    Whoa… can I say this is an MS Gundam RPG with RPG-skilled-character pilots.
