Nintendo Will Show Off Xenoblade Chronicles X’s Enormous World This Week


Nintendo will be streaming a presentation on Xenoblade Chronicles X in Japan later this week. The stream will take place on Friday, February 6th at 10 pm JST, and will showcase the game’s vast world.


In an issue of Famitsu magazine published last week, Xenoblade Chronicles X executive director Tetsuya Takahashi confirmed that the game will feature Off-TV play via the Wii U GamePad. Developer Monolith Soft also confirmed seamless exploration of the game’s enormous world without loading screens in between areas.


Xenoblade Chronicles X will be released in Japan on April 29th. North America and Europe will get the game sometime later this year.
