So, people have managed to translate bits of the script pages that flashed by in the trailer.
-Main character is named Rex
-Red girl is Homura
-Hikari and Nia are thrown around (Hikari is theorized to be the blonde in the trailer and Nia is thought to be the cat girl on the giant leopard)
-Vandham (who, from what I can gather, is actually a recurring archetype within the whole "series") lectures Rex on "Blades" and their "Drivers"; Blades are extremely powerful, but will die if their core is damaged or if their Driver is killed.

As for "Blades" and stuff... well, I may as well just leave on a bombshell:

(I had to go to Gamefaqs to dig up the link and good grief are they flipping their collective ---- over there. So much hate and vitriol.)

Holy moly! So the blond girl in the trailer, that also has that weird diadem and glowing thing, could also be like what they show in the image?

It looks perfect to me as part of the story, and with some of the classical Takahashi plot twists.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Probably even longer than that, since the original Japanese version came out way before the US. So yeah, chances are it will come out in 2017......in Japan.

And that assumes that the development time has not benefited from Nintendo's restructuring. For all we know the localization could be in full swing already. As I don't know about you, but doesn't that trailer too well polished for a Work In Progress?

Even Breath of the Wild had some polish needed in its trailers

They may also have some extra man-power with their side work on Zelda BOTW, Project X Zone 2 etc done too.

@Luna_110 I kinda doubt there's any big twists that have been shown; most of that stuff will probably be confirmed pre-release and happen very early on.
And yeah, all bets are on Hikari/Blondie being a Blade as well.

I'm ultra excited for this game. This game is what probably swayed me to go ahead and plan for a Switch. I'm glad it's a Xenoblade sequel and not a Xenoblade X sequel, but I'm not terribly enamored with the uber-anime character models. I mean, let's not kid ourselves, X's character models were uber-anime as well.

And it's not that I don't like anime—I do. I just wanted better character models. To be fair, none of the Xenoblade games have had good character models. In fact, I'd say the character models have been the worst part of both games, in terms of visuals. The exact opposite of the enemy design and especially world design.

I think that's one thing we can be sure of: this is going to be an incredible world to explore.

I was actually fine with the characters, I'm honestly fine with the whole cel-shade style of visuals (not sure if X2 has this, kinda looked like it though).

If I remember right in XCX, fairly early in the game you find out everyone is in robotic bodies. I believe an NPC also mentioned that people were paying for body modifications, anything ranging from build to facial features. When taken into context, the faces weren't really that strange when you think about it (especially Lynn's, she could have simply had a preference for her look).

I've skipped the Xenoblade games on Wii and Wii U (and I don't have a New 3DS). I (briefly) played Xenoblade on Wii U at EGX in 2015 but it didn't grab me in the time I spent with it.

I need someone who can get me hyped for this game. Convince me why I need it!

Well to begin...It's really uuuaahh and full of Heeyaaaaa and you go really different places and BOOM! Then this guy comes Rarrhhhg and you go "tring" "tring" with all kinds of ZING ZANG which is best described as ZOOOM.

Tl;dr just play the original and make up your mind.
I hope that helped.

That sounds exciting! I'd consider picking up the original if it wasn't for the fact that it would likely cost me as much as the Switch version will!

The little bit I played of it reminded me of Phantasy Star Online on Dreamcast. Is that a fair comparison?

I guess? Kinda like somewhere between that and FF XII is my best comparison.

(I can barely remember how PSO played anymore, it's been that long...)

These guys make the most interesting game worlds in all RPGs. The stories are quite interesting and original too.

I hope they keep the world just as interesting as Mira. Exploring it was one of the best parts of XCX, the delight of finding new, hidden places was fantastic - except when you found a Tyrant that killed you in one shot.

@Ernest_The_Crab Please be considerate to other users and use spoiler tags when disclosing plot details of games. If you don't know how to use them, just find another post where someone has used them and quote that post, you'll then be able to see how the tags are written. Thanks.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Xenoblade X is profoundly good at making even a fairly typical cave into a glorious bit of exploration and fun just by being exploration. I honestly can't think of another game (barring the original) where I wanted to explore a place simply because it was there (though Elder Scrolls games are close)
