Default Xenoblade Sequel - E3 2013: Nintendo Direct Trailer

June 12th, 2013, 03:00
I know most scoff at JRPG's but I had to share this one. Nintendo revealed that a sequel to Xenoblade is going to be released.
Also before I forget it's for the Wii U. I can hear the outrage already.

Giant robots and an open-world RPG? The makers of Xenoblade know a good thing when they have it.
More information.

After playing the original Xenoblade, it's half tempting to buy a Wii U just for this.

Poor Monolith…they make Xenoblade which was brilliant but nobody played it because it was on the Wii. Now they make this…which nobody will play because of the Wii U. Ah well…

I am definitely getting this. Xenoblade was probably the best RPG last gen on the consoles that you couldnt get on pc.

Xenoblade is the only Wii game I own and was ok in terms of gameplay and certainly better because it could be played flawlessly on a PC with the Dolphin emulator and a decent graphics card. The story was somewhat interesting at least the first half with the second half never really living up to its heritage.

I will only pick up the sequel if it runs on a PC with emulator again.

I played a good deal of Xenoblade and wasn't impressed. That trailer reminds me more of Xenogears than Xenoblade though.

The trailer for Final fantasy is impressive, but that style/setting just doesn't do much for me. I liked that series when it took place in high-fantasy settings.

Even Nintendo reviles its sequels these days! Harhar.

True enough, but I'm keeping a keen eye on this!! First time I heard of FFXV.

Nothing malicious about that. Just a quickly typed up post with a misspelling. Congratulations on being the first to bring it to my attention. It's fixed.

Haha, it was just that the mistake was funny.

P.S. You just had to put it in bold.

That's for sure - but they can still make a heck of a trailer!

That looks absolutely awesome. I may pick up a Wii U just to play it, like I did with Xenoblade Chronicles.
