There's potential for Xenoblade Chronicles 3D to introduce Monolith Soft's impressive RPG to a new audience, though admittedly its exclusivity to the New Nintendo 3DS may limit its sales impact in the same way as its relatively late (Western) arrival on Wii. For fans of the genre or those seeking a sizeable adventure, it's certainly worth considering.

Nintendo's continuing to release videos to show the title off on the New 3DS, and the latest example shows off a key feature of the Monado's move-set. As you progress you unlock a new ability to foresee dangers for allies and, if you judge the execution well, you can provide a shield or buff to protect your teammate. It adds another level of depth to the real-time battles.
