Xenoblade Chronicles X Is Not A Sequel To Xenoblade


Xenoblade Chronicles X is not a direct sequel to Xenoblade, Nintendo’s Treehouse division confirmed during a live-stream of the game yesterday—instead, the game is more of a spiritual successor to Xenoblade.


Treehouse representatives added that, while it isn’t a sequel to the Wii RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles X will hit a lot of the same philosophical notes as its predecessor did, and that if you’ve been with the Xeno series since the early games, you’ll notice nods to those titles as well.


Xenoblade Chronicles X is in development for a 2015 release.
