Xenoblade Chronicles X’s Planet Mira is home to all kinds of alien races, but it’s also home to numerous creatures. From gentle herbivores to giant whale-like flying monsters, the official website shares a look at some of the many creatures you’ll encounter in the upcoming title.
Brass Femina Zeus: A boar-like creature with a firm lump on its head. The male (Brass Zeus) and female versions have different hair and body colors.
Stone Hippo: Has a sharp tusk beneath its jaw. They’re gentle creaters, and can often be seen around bodies of water.
Wood Fontera: Herbivores with a height of over 6 meters. They’re similar to giraffes, as they use their long necks to eat leaves on trees.
Everlast Milesauro: Giant creatures that resemble dinosaurs. They don’t attack humans, and tend to spend their time leisurely.
Lake Rutorl: Live by bodies of water, and have a mammal-like appearance. They also share characteristics of dogs and cats, as they face upwards and roll around.
Quick Strutt: Bird-like bipedal creatures. Similar to ostriches, they have wings but cannot fly. The Quick Strutts live in groups and feed off insects they peck off the ground.
Junior Simius: share the appearance of an ape, but they have four arms to go with their two legs. They often travel in groups, and can occasionally be seen with their giant parents.
Young Lups: fierce carnivores that will even go after other prey while hunting. They’ll also attack humans immediately upon seeing any nearby.
Docile Ois: Small herbivore creatures with a puffy ball on the end of their tails. They like to eat sprouts, and can often be seen living in areas with plenty of greens.
Youth Vasalt: These insect-like creatures have six legs, and use their front legs as sickles. You might occasionally see them using their sickles to dig holes in the ground.
Welkin Lukiora: these giant flying creatures usually travel calmly in the skies. They tend to constantly float around their own territories.
Among the creatures on Mira, there are some that are considered a threat to humans, called the “Overed”. Overeds are similar to regular monsters, but they’re much stronger and have unique names.
The Overeds will be targets of subjugation quests at times, and due to their powerful nature, you’ll need to be well-prepared before taking them on.
Xenoblade Chronicles X will release in Japan on April 29th and later this year in North America and Europe for the Wii U.
