New Monolith Soft RPG. New Xenoblade! Looks awesome!

Well this and Mario guaranteed I'll be buying the console then!

I loved how you could tell it was a sequel to Chronicles. Similar visual style and setting.

Nintendo's tweet points out that it's "Xenoblade Chronicles 2" not "Xenoblade 2" btw. I assume that was just different because we'd seen the japanese version:

@Dezzy Got bored after playing the Wii game, and never played the Wii U one (looked terrible IMO), but this looks a lot better I think. Might consider it when and if I get the Switch.

Wow does this look cool, but I need to play the other two before I even dream of playing this one. The visuals looked very nice, and that modified Monado...wow!

It's my dream game! : DDDDDD

ALSO THEY FINALLY FIGURED OUT TO MAKE THE CHARACTER MODELs STYLIZED AND CUTER, THANK GOD. Stop trying to take anime characters seriously, Xenoblade art designer. This is much better.

Yep. 3rd attempt and they managed to finally design anime characters. Knew they'd get there in the end.

So I'm not the only one who's glad that they finally got the faces right!

Meh, I take it I'm the only one not impressed by the new art style then.

Go look at Xenoblade X's character models again then. This might as well be going from OOT to Wind Waker in terms of character models.

The art style looks so generic to me. It's like they went full anime.

I've died. There is no more me

@shaneoh

I was wondering that. Although I've beaten Xenoblade Chronicles U myself, I'd heard people were expecting a continuation of the Miran story.

As for the character style, it certainly looks cleaner than the original Xenoblade (for obvious reasons), and less uncanny than the po faced ones in Xenoblade Chronicles X (for less obvious reasons), but the second the male (supposed) protagonist was shown, I did wince a little. Peronally, I think they look a little too animé. I actually prefer the Wii original style.

The way it looks keeps reminding me of a 90's Playstation JRPG.

The designs are exactly the same as for the other Xeno games judging by that little sketch they had in the background at one point in the trailer.
So...yes. They do look like characters from a 90s PS1 JRPG because that's exactly what they have been doing since Gears.

The designs themselves aren't any more or less detailed as far as I can tell from that trailer. It's really only the direction they went with for the actual game. And yes, that stuff is very "anime". I'm not sold on the designs myself but I think they will probably work if Xenoblade 2 is as much "Shounen Story" as Xenonlade Wii.

And yeah...I was a bit disappointed that it isn't the X sequel but the game looks awesome nonetheless. Pretty excited for it. And ACE are back for the OST so that's great. I read it's supposed to release this year? I hope they manage to meet that, and that it applies to us in the west too and not just Japan.

What a beautiful signature.

Twitter, not like there's anything interesting on there

It's not even the deigns alone, it's way the angle of the camera in the market/street scene screams 90's playstation JRPG.
