Xenoblade 2 is at least SUPPOSED to not have significant connections to the other games so it should be fine.

Kotor is probably a decent comparison for the combat. Somewhere between that and MMOs.

Thanks, sounds like it's something I would enjoy.

@Agriculture

It's the same as KOTOR combat but just more interesting and more focus on timing/skill based stuff. You feel much less passive than you do in KOTOR, Dragon Age or FF12.
No you don't need to play any others. It's still not entirely clear if it'll have connections to XC1 in its story but they're making it quite clear it'll only be a minor connection if it is.

When have they said that? It's been lightly implied by the complete lack of mention of anything but I don't recall them actually saying anything.

I think the art style is miles better than the first one. It was really hard to look at with the Wii/3DS graphics

Looking at what they said, I guess that's true. But I think the implication makes it pretty likely that it's not a direct sequel to 1.

@kkslider5552000

You have to wonder what they're doing with the titles though if it's not a sequel. 1->X->2 is not a natural progression.
If it was entirely unrelated, I feel they would've gone for some other random subtitle.

@JTMnM @Knighty_IX I will beat you both next time, I was too tired to post this last night.

Her name is indeed Musubi and a Google Translate says: "Today's rare blade is "Musubi". It's a goddess Blade of anything godly. The design is Ken Azumiya. Mr. Miki Takahashi is also a voice."

Man this game better have a good story to compensate for the uniquely silly character designs.

Any word on costume changing yet? Or do the blades have to maintain their look?

When I made the post, I hadn't seen the video showcasing the voice. Hoping the dub does a better job of conveying the character. I was expecting strong, and I got 12-year-old girl.

@SMEXIZELDAMAN Not to my knowledge, and I've been following this game somewhat closely. If anyone has anything on this, I'd also like to know. Maybe it'll be addressed on Monday during the direct.

Once again, you beat me. I don't know what timezone you're in, but I apparently need to up my late-night tweeting. Weird design, presumably OP.

@DiscoGentleman Yah, I agree. I don't honestly mind the fanservice as much as it might seem from some of my comments, but variety is nice.

(Don't hate me, but I do like the Electric girl. She looks like a spitfire.)

Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.

Eff the fanservice! Buncha young girls in skimpy clothing, this ain't why I play RPGs >:[
