We're now just a small number of weeks away from Xenoblade Chronicles X, the enormous Monolith Soft RPG that'll likely keep plenty of Wii U owners busy into 2016. Excitement is sure to build as a result, and Nintendo is keen for players to go in with a decent amount of knowledge to tackle the complex and varied game mechanics it'll offer.
In early October we shared the first two parts of a 'survival guide' video series, and Nintendo has now shared part three. It covers the Skells, the huge mechs that you can eventually buy and use to tackle enormous monsters; they're also vital for traversing the large world quickly. The video tackles various aspects, including combat techniques and the dreaded Skell insurance; these machines don't look cheap to replace.
It's an intriguing watch, so check it out below and let us know what you think.
I've been seeing bits of this game regularly for so long now I forgot it's not out in the West yet. Nintendo need to build the hype back up again.
Trying to stay spoiler-free till release date...IT'S HARD!
I have been listening to the ost on repeat for the last 'I don't know how long'.
And people are hyped up about Fallout's power armor..
This and Battlefront are the only games I want this year. Fallout will have to wait. Hoping some of the framerate issues and bugs in that game are fixed soon. Granted, the PS4 version isn't as bad as the Xbox One version, which drops to 0 fps at times.
Might get Super Mystery Dungeon at some point though.
Really hope I can get this when it comes out...hate being tight on money. (having to save up for a big trip on the same month doesn't help much either)
The video brought a new perspective to the game.
@andrea987 Strangely enough I've literally not seen any, what I consider, spoilers (which is mainly story and in-depth mechanics related stuff, so not really these videos personally) and I haven't even tried. I have literally heard nothing on the story other than 'earth is destroyed, aliens, yah da yah'.
@andrea987 I'm in the same position as @Firlow. Haven't heard/seen any actual spoilers other than the intro to the plot (earth destroyed, aliens, etc), which is about as spoilerish as reading the summary on the back of a book.
Not as good as an ND or a Treehouse Live, but at least it's something. 3 survival videos makes 2 more vids than AC:aF has gotten and that releases in only 4 days. Plenty of time to hype this up, still has almost month to go.
@IceClimbers @Firlow I might have used the word "spoiler" inappropriately, I just want to discover everything in-game, that's what I mean by that, gameplay mechanics included.
Also, if I haven't seen any videos about it (including this one), I wouldn't know what's in there, wouldn't I? 😝
Finally, they released it. They need a better schedule for releasing these episodes.
I think I need this in my life badly.
Pretty cool stuff, and good to know since I don't think I'd be lying if I said the Skells are the main reason I want to get this.
Yes the Skells are the thing that are getting me most hyped about this game!!
Just can't watch any more videos of this game. I'm looking forward to playing it though.
Definitely the game I'm looking forward to the most for the remainder of the year. I'll definitely spend the holidays flying around on mechs.
All I need to know is that I'll keep calling them Dolls, not "Skells". The rest will be a fresh experience for me. No guides, no spoilers, no trailers. Just raw excitement.
This Christmas I'd love a Doll, clad in red and white
Gliding through Mira's skies would be such a delight
Over the roofs of NLA, with verniers burning bright
Then soar into the darker skies to wile away the night.
Ok, decided to not make a character based off Eureka, still gonna make a Skell named Nirvash, though. lol
"If a skell loses an arm, cooresponding arts tied to that appendage will go offline"
Do you realize how freaking AWESOME that is?!! Individual components can be destroyed, and it continues functioning, albeit with a cost tied to the loss, but still. That's amazing!
HYYYYYYPE! My body is beyond ready.
As if this game needed more reasons to cement itself onto my wish list.
With the release schedule for these videos I'm wondering if we'll see the next one before the game is out.
This game is five times bigger than Fallout Five!
Excellent. I am trying to wait patiently, I really am. Only a few weeks away.
That freakin' cockpit view.....(O_O)
Ooops. I was naughty and listened through the entire soundtrack whilst working through an assignment. I'll let you in on a little secret guys....it's amazing.
Anyone seen the xenoblade world is three times bigger than the witcher four times bigger than fallout 4 vid? How have they done it? Amazing really
I'm not that much into RPGs but must admit that my interest for this game has grown recently.
I think this is my second day-one purchase this year. I'm slightly worried about the story though. I heard there is not much of it. It certainly seems the emphasis is on the overworld and combat.
i dont like mecha,i avoid it like a pest but wow this is just beyond awesome.last time ivwas ok with mechavwa neon genesis evangelion!this will be the second time
Man, waiting for Xenoblade Chronicles X to release will be tough over the next few weeks. (also trying to get some money for it will be tough too lol)
Hmmm as much as I hate the story behind XCX , This video did show a lot of interesting stuff. Im also curious if XCX is bigger than the original XC? I like some ideas that are put into XCX and the battle mechanics look good. Pretty much for me when I play this game I will happily ignore the story(im not explaining why ,I already stated it in multiple comments) and enjoy the large HD environment.
I have to suffer now one more month... damn
