Video: What Could Xenoblade Chronicles Look Like In HD?

Sharp as a blade

Did you enjoy our Super Mario Galaxy and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD videos? We certainly hope so, because we've got another one for you today, and it's a real jaw-dropper.

For this Xenoblade Chronicles video, we've done things a little differently. There's no standard definition footage in there now — this is all HD, captured by our moving-image master Rory Cocker inside his top-secret research facility in the darkest regions of north England.

As you can see, the game looks absolutely stunning (make sure you've got 1080p enabled on your YouTube player) and hopefully one day we'll see this cult classic re-released on the Wii U in some form, as many people missed out on the Wii original due to its low print run and the game's subsequent rising value in the second-hand market.

As ever, we cannot stress enough that this footage has nothing to do with Nintendo whatsoever — it is merely an illustration of what Xenoblade Chronicles could potentially look like running in 1080p high definition.
