I love the new art style. Character models were always the Xenoblade series' graphical weak point, and with the more stylized look, they stand out more.

Currently Playing: Super Mario Odyssey, ARMS, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Steamworld Dig 2, A Hat In Time, (maybe some Wii games over Thanksgiving w/ the fam)

Well, to be fair, the trailer was pretty generic.

The original Xenoblade X trailer was one of the best "sell me on this game" trailers ever.

This was not REMOTELY as good. That's entirely true.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

I think that's actually completely intentional; the first trailer for X raised a ton of hype... which ended up backfiring on them.

No?

I mean, yeah, it wasn't as beloved as the original but I still usually see really high praise for it. And to be fair, the best trailer was before it revealed any story so...that says something alright.

All I know is Monolith Soft never disappoints.

I'm glad to see their new project is coming so soon. Retro and Monolith and Tokyo EAD are always studios with hype releases

Hard to say. Could be. then again they could be doing what the Final Fantasy games do and make entirely different world, but share some of its lore and style of its previous games. And I'm thinking they are going the FF route.

@Tsurii
Xenosaga's plot was awesome. Namco's restrictions of budget and rushing the project to meet deadlines wasn't so much.

Monolith does need to get better at getting stuff done by deadlines though. Takahashi tends to go over budget and need extra time.

Found a nice analysis vid of the trailer:

Basically one-up's Gamexplain's vid in every single regard. Also has a second video for the artwork. No talking, just text at the bottom of the screen and music.

I was thinking the other day that this game may have little connection to Xenoblade 1: maybe it's just in the new universe created by Shulk, with some link in the main story or secondary characters in it. What do you guys think?

@FGPackers Wasn't that what was generally presumed?
I'll take it further; the connection between Blades and Drivers is an intentional in-universe mimicry of the relationship between Alvis/The Monado and Shulk, potentially brought about by the former (who I'd say has a decent chance of re-appearing).

@Tsurii good thing I read this first since I'm in the middle of my playthrough.
Just remember,

@Tsurii Spoilertags initially didn't work for me for whatever reason. Sorry.

@Tsurii @yokokazuo I'm sorry guys

I made the huge mistake to think that everyone completed this game since it is 7 years old and came on two systems. Never gonna happen again. I'm really sorry

By the way (sorry for returning on this) i didn't know the spoiler command, i'm still learning all for this forum, is there a list? (even for images and things like that so that i don't make any other mistakes like this one)

@Tsurii @yokokazuo sorry again guys i really can't get this out of my mind, i didn't want to ruin the game to both of you ç.ç

@FGPackers it's fine, don't worry about it! I didn't read anything so I haven't been spoiled yet.
I don't think there is a list somewhere, but this website used BBC code so searching up some things you can do with it may help. Most things require using the square brackets and are pretty similar overall. Images are [img](URL here)[/img). YouTube videos only require the link though.

I had forgotten you were pretty new here, but welcome to the forums! I hope you enjoy it here. Plus any Fire Emblem fan is good in my book
