Looks like Kotobukiya will be making model kits of the Skells from Xenoblade Chronicle X, according to the official Xenoblade Chronicles X website update. It is unknown they will be able to transform into their vehicle modes with ease like their in-game counterparts, but at least we know these lovely kits will be coming in the near future.
In today’s Nintendo Direct, a new video was released for Xenoblade Chronicles X. Aside from confirming it will be released in 2015, the video showcased the scale and variety of the explorable world of Mira where you can traverse it either by foot or by mecha. It also provided a bit more background as to why they’ve crash landed on the foreign planet. Here’s to hoping we get much more new info regarding the types of mecha we can use in the game in future updates. Definitely check it out in video below to see it all in action.
Last seen this year at an earlier Nintendo Direct and previously known as X, Nintendo has finally given us more information on the upcoming RPG Xenoblade Chronicles X for the Wii U. Delayed until 2015, Nintendo showed off a CG trailer during its E3 Digital Event on Tuesday, June 10, showcasing the game’s story origins with a gigantic war between two alien factions above Earth. Even though they attempt to thwart the alien attacks with their mechanized dolls, the humans eventually escape from Earth facing extinction and eventually crash land on a planet in another galaxy. The story feels very reminiscent of the Phantasy Star series and that is by no means a negative, providing the foundations of what players will be engrossing themselves with when they play. Later on in the day, Nintendo provided a 45 minute presentation of the game during its Treehouse Live event, showcasing gameplay systems that appear to be an evolution of the Xenoblade on the Wii. Granted we did not see any doll gameplay, we can only hope they provide more mecha goodness before E3 ends. Until then, check out the CG trailer and Treehouse Live gameplay presentation below!
For those of you waiting for any new information regarding the state of the upcoming Monolith Soft RPG “X” for the Wii U, the recent Nintendo Direct has shown two minutes of brand new gameplay footage. Using an upgraded version of the battle system from Xenoblade, the video shows the playable characters battling monkey-esque creatures on foot and in their mecha, called Dolls. Having logged in nearly 100 hours in Xenoblade, I personally cannot wait to get my hands on this game. The enemy AI looks to be lacking in this vid, but I’m sure that will be remedied as they get further along with the game. Be sure to check out the video below!
At the recent Nintendo E3 Direct, a new trailer was shown for the new Wii U RPG by Monolithsoft, currently dubbed “X”. This new trailer focuses on the mecha featured in the game, called Dolls, and showcased more of their functionality in the game, from different forms of traversal and mecha types. As a spiritual successor to Xenoblade, the scope and scale of this game looks amazing from the large vistas to the giant enemies, both organic and mechanical. As a huge fan of the Xeno-series RPGs and Xenoblade, I can’t wait to see what this game has in store for us in the future. The game will be released in 2014, but until then make sure to check out the trailer below!
