Six Glorious Minutes Of Xenoblade Footage


Here’s a new introductory Xenoblade trailer Nintendo put out recently in Japan, presumably for those that haven’t been following the game. It’s six whole minutes long and shows off the battle system, field events, character customization and interaction.


Given that the game is mere weeks from launch, it should be interesting to see to what extent Nintendo market it, and whether or not Nintendo of America show it off at E3 in some form. It may not be the ideal candidate to demo on a giant screen at their press conference, owing partially to its rather unpolished art, but it certainly deserves to be localized, and an announcement confirming as much would be nice.
