X Monolith

There was plenty of game footage on show in Nintendo's E3 Direct, with one eagerly awaited trailer being for Monolith Soft's X. First revealed in January, the fresh footage arrived with a vague confirmation of a 2014 release.

Some themes from the first trailer have continued across, such as the use of impressive mechs that can transform into wheeled vehicles or engage in flight, while we saw more of the character traversing an impressive overworld both solo and as part of a team. A potential insight into the storyline showed an urban environment at the start with a countdown on a large tower, but aside from that footage mostly revolved around exploration and action, including an air-based battle.
