XENOBLADE CHRON­I­CLES X

Publisher Nin­tendo De­vel­oper Mono­lith Soft For­mat Wii U Ori­gin Ja­pan Re­lease April 29 (Ja­pan), 2015 ( US/ EU)

While the re­cent Nin­tendo Di­rect yielded an­other trailer show­ing off Mono­lith’s fright­fully pretty and var­ied open world, there’s still no news on a western re­lease date for the suc­ces­sor to Wii’s mar­vel­lous Xenoblade Chron­i­cles. Mono­lith Soft has at least con­firmed that lo­cal­i­sa­tion is well un­der­way, but the wait for a game that launches in Ja­pan in just a few months is al­ready prov­ing painful. Here’s hop­ing the trans­la­tion gig’s gone to the same team that did the Wii game, which sen­si­tively re­tained the orig­i­nal’s eastern feel while also adding a cer­tain Bri­tish­ness, and even a Chuckle Broth­ers ref­er­ence, to pro­ceed­ings.
