We reported on the new information for Monolith Soft’s mysterious sci fi RPG, long known as code name “X,” and how it sounded like a sequel to the original Xenoblade Chronicles.
It turns out the game is not a direct sequel, but more of a spiritual successor to the cult classic that saw release on the Wii. This tidbit of information was revealed during Nintendo’s Treehouse live stream during E3.
The representatives from the Treehouse stream also confirmed that while it isn’t a sequel, it will share much of the themes and philosophy as the previous games did. They even threw long time fans a bone in mentioning that if you’ve been a fan of older Xeno games (like Xenogears), you’ll see throwbacks to those games too.
Xenoblade Chronicles X is coming sometime in 2015 on Wii U.
