“We decided to call it Xenoblade to honor Mr. Tetsuya Takahashi who poured his soul into making this and who has been working on the Xeno series,” Satoru Iwata said at an investor’s briefing.

 

That little bit of information also confirms Takahashi, the creator of Xenogears and Xenosaga, is working on Xenoblade. Takahashi’s last game was Soma Bringer, which Soraya Saga wrote the script for. Other Monolith Soft titles include Disaster: Day of Crisis and Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier Exceed.

 

Nintendo says Xenoblade is a full scale RPG and will be ready for Japan this spring. It is currently has a flexible 2010 window for North America where it’s still being called Monado: Beginning of the World.
