The Next RPG From The Makers Of Xenoblade Is Out For Wii U Next Year

There's no title yet for the upcoming open-world RPG from Monolith Soft, the people behind critically acclaimed Wii RPG Xenoblade, but it's codenamed X. And it has giant robots, which reminds me of Xenogears and makes me very happy.

Here's Nintendo's official PR on the game:

A brand-new title developed by MONOLITH SOFTWARE INC.: Monolith Soft, the creative force behind The Xenoblade Chronicles, is creating an open world for players to explore. Players can ride human-shaped robots at certain points in the game, or use the robots to battle enemies in the sky. The game is scheduled to launch in 2014.


    Now THIS might be enough to convince me to get a Wii U, alongside the other game announcements. Will need to see what the end result is of course, but Xenoblade was awesome so I'm cautiously optimistic.

      I never played the first one, but this might be a console seller for me - but more likely it will require the addition of a price drop on the WiiU also.

    This is the first thing that has actually made me consider a Wii U... granted i'd need more than just one game..

      granted i'd need more than just one game

      no you don't, just buy it :P

      PS Imagine being a mecha pilot and everyone else gets the base model grey ones but you get the badass pink one. You know its go to be badass because it is confident enough to pull off pink. Sucked in everyone else :P

        Pink does sound pretty enticing...

      If the game's as good as Xenoblade was, then it would honestly justify the purchase on its own.

        it only need be half as good as Xenoblade to justify the purchase.

    am I the only one who noticed the big red X they used for their title screen is the same as the one from Xenogears on the ps1?
