Monolith Soft Confirms Xenoblade Chronicles X Will Have Online Elements



Monolith Soft recently erected website for Xenoblade Chronicles X, and revealed that the game is in its final stages of development. Following their last update, the developers recently updated the official website once again, with a few more words.


In the latest developer blog post, Monlith shared a brief update on how they recently opened the website without asking Nintendo, which ended up being fine by the publishers; however, they soon faced a different problem: they underestimated how many hits the website would get.


Monolith didn’t anticipate the vast number of fans that would visited the newly-opened site, and as a result, had to deal with an overload, and figure out new server rental plans with the site’s host.


According to Monolith, the problem was mainly attributed to the number of people that downloaded the theme song on the front page, and also due to those that kept listening to it on loop. To fix the problem, they’ve decided to turn off the loop and lower the bit rate for the track.


Finally, at the end of their blog post, they teased, “Huh? Online elements? Of course [the game] will have some!”.


While we don’t know the full extent of these online elements yet, we can expect to hear about it soon. Director Tetsuya Takahashi also said to expect new information via their official Xenoblade account soon.


Xenoblade Chronicles X will release in Japan in Spring 2015 for Wii U.
