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.
