Xenoblade Chronicles X Director Takes To Twitter Once More

Monolith Soft are keen to get talking about Xenoblade Chronicles X. Executive Director Tetsuya Takahashi took to the game’s official Twitter account today to post a short message for fans waiting for more news on the open-world Wii U RPG.

 

“Apologies for the wait,” Takahashi said on Twitter. “I’m thinking of rambling here 2 or 3 times a week from now on. This time, I’ll start by talking briefly about how the Xenoblade X project began.”

 

“After the completion of the previous Xenoblade, when I told [Hitoshi] Yamagami-san’s team at Nintendo that I wanted to create something a little more sci-fi using Xenoblade as a base, they said it could be worth the challenge.”

 

“So then, we began thinking about what updates would be possible with the Wii U (such as making the maps seamless, having the game connect online etc.) and started to research. When everything seemed feasible, that’s when actual development began.”

 

Xenoblade Chronicles X will be released in Japan sometime in Spring 2015, and Nintendo are targeting a 2015 release for North America and Europe as well. The game is currently in its final stages of development.
