Game Profile

X Marks the Spot

The next massive sci-fi role-playing game from Monolith Soft, the creators of Baten Kaitos and Xenoblade Chronicles, comes exclusively to Wii U. A terrible intergalactic war leaves just a handful of Earth survivors trying to live in a beautiful yet hostile environment. Players engage in battles against powerful creatures of all forms and sizes using the deep battle system that builds on the triumphs of Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii.

How to Get a Skell in Xenoblade Chronicles X, Including Locations of Rare Items

Alex shows the way

We love Xenoblade Chronicles X, yet we're aware that it has a few negatives. The text and user interface could be better, and there are some difficulty spikes and awkward collectathons. The latter is particularly prominent when trying to secure your Skell licence, which you predictably need to get your own cool mech. For those of...

Xenoblade Chronicles X Has Tiny Text - Time for an Update?

Tom Whitehead's not really seeing it, are you?

This week we received an interesting email from one of our readers, Victor, which made a very good point. The text in Xenoblade Chronicles X is too small, and it should be improved; it was a lightbulb moment when we realised we should have brought it up far sooner - I certainly should have. In my...

I just pray it's a direct sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles. With co-op multiplayer.

Am I the only one in here who realizes this game is online (and thus has co-op multiplayer) from the trailer or can't anybody else neither read "Player 1", "Player 2", "Player 3" nor a few hiraganas of discussion??????

I guess I'd have to have played Xenoblade to get what everyone's so excited about. Or maybe have seen the other trailer. The E3 one was mostly just...walking. And flying around in a robot...very serenely. I dunno, I guess I'd be more interested if I saw something explode...

Looks in-bloody-credible.
Nintendo and Monolith Soft have really out-done themselves this time.
I really hope it does well commercially.

This game looks awesome. The gameplay, graphics, artwork, music, and possibly the story all seem very great. It is one of the few RPGs I have ever been interested in. HYPE!!!

I also noticed the online comment box in the trailer I can't wait Itlooks amazing, I love online open plan games like MH3. I hope you are able to get to play against/ with 7 people at a time double the amount of MH3. I really hope they advertise this game well.

I hope they announce a release date at E3 2014. The Wii U needs more games like this.

This REALLY reminds me (visually) of the Xenosaga trilogy, which is a good thing!

I was initially disappointed there wasn't anything really exciting for me at E3 but then I saw tree house gameplay for this. So excited they nailed down the release date.

I also CANT WAIT for it - the battle for "game of the year" is extremely tough this year - but Im sure its the best the WiiU has to offer - not just this year Im asured, the predecessor is one of the best JRPGs Ive ever played (and I have played A LOT of JRPGs)

I've noticed that when playing the game you have to DOUBLE click the L and R shoulder buttons to lock onto target and reset the camera view - single press doesn't work as outlined in digital manual.
You just have to get this game!
