Xenoblade Chronicles X Trailer: Mechs, Furries, Aliens and RPG Goodness
This new trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles X reminds us of everything we've ever loved about Xenogears and Xenosaga. There's even a guy who looks a lot like Chaos to boot.
This new trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles X has us dying for subtitles or English dubs, but we still love it. We get to see some of the more spacey factors of Xenoblade's story, such as the interspecies war going on and your ragtag group of soldiers trying to set things right. We should note that there was a Zohar-like object seen, as well as a ton of evil aliens, both organic and robotic in nature. Also, the characters don't know how to properly hold their guns, but that's alright, it's a JRPG.
We're digging all of these character designs, as many JRPGs were filled with some lackluster and forgettable characters in the past, but we can't wait to meet Xenoblade's characters while playing. We just hope that Monolith Soft hires some quality voice actors, as poor voice acting has plagued too many JRPGs of the past.Nevertheless, we should note there's a mech (which are called Dolls in this game) that can transform into a giant motorcycle. We're officially sold. Since previous trailers showcased the game's story, exploration and combat systems, we're getting quite convinced that Xenoblade Chronicles X is the real deal, and we can't wait to see how it turns out. Someone let Final Fantasy XV, Mass Effect 4 and Star Ocean 5 know they've got some serious competition coming from the Wii U.
Xenoblade Chronicles X will be launching in Japan on April 29 for the Wii U. A Western release has been confirmed, and we're expecting it overseas sometime late this year or in early 2016.
