Xenoblade Chronicles X is extremely close to release, a cause for celebration for Monolith Soft and RPG fans with a Wii U. With many, many hours of content it's sure to keep players busy into 2016, and it takes many of the mechanics from its Wii predecessor and shakes them up - the Skell mechs are a big part of that, naturally.

Nintendo has been releasing some trailers and videos recently, though we think this two and a half minute Battle Trailer may be the best yet. It shows off some impressive scuffles, both on foot and in Skells, while emphasizing the range of foes and environments in the game. As a hype building exercise we think it definitely does the job.
