Monolith Soft Boss Wants to Port Xenoblade Chronicles X to Nintendo Switch

While Nintendo and Monolith Soft are readying their next massive RPG launch in the form of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, the developer’s president is still addicted to the previous game in the series, and wishes he could play it on the Switch as well.

When asked (via 4Gamer) for the possibility of seeing the expansive mecha-filled RPG on the hybrid console, Monolith Soft president Tetsuya Takahashi said that he still feels like playing Xenoblade Chronicles X to this day, and how he thinks it would be so good to be able to play it on the Nintendo Switch.

Takahashi noted that porting the game to the new platform will depend on demand and things as usual, however, he said he’ll think about it while discussing new things with Nintendo.

Xenoblade Chronicles X was originally released for the Wii U back in 2015. Would you like to see that game on the Nintendo Switch? Sound off in the comments below! Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is launching for the Nintendo Switch on December 1st.

    Un-censor the game, and I might consider a future purchase.

    You can fuck off and suck your own dick, otherwise.

    It would be cool. It’d also make all the Xenoblade games playable in handheld form.

    Spoilers, but XCX kinda ends on a crazy cliffhanger, and personally, I don’t want to wait for a XCX2 to see a conclusion. I would much rather they re-released X on Switch, with some further chapters to conclude the story.

    Also, they need to redesign and revamp the online multiplayer in that game. I would love for it to be a proper online RPG. I would love to see other online players walking around New LA, with the ability to chat and form parties, etc, with them (think of it like Phantasy Star Universe for PS2/360/PC, if you’ve ever played that game). On the fields, it would be instanced to only a few players (kinda like the multi-parties in PSO2), which would keep it optimised and not too straining on Switch’s CPU. I think it could be done, but sadly I think I’m just dreaming.

    Treehouse was responsible for the dub! Can you really trust they accurately represented concepts and themes in the Japanese version of the game?

    Uncensored, relocalized (because it’s not just the censorship) and dual audio and you have a purchase from me.

    I did not buy the game on Wii U because of these issues. Which is a shame because it would have been a game I would have liked.

    Yeah sure I know it was garbage, I hate the english voices in the game, especially Lin, just saying that if they provide a japanese voice track with accurate subs I don’t see the need for them to waste time and money on an english redub.

  24. InkViper
    InkViper
    November 30, 2017 at 12:56 pm

    Well if it was only a Japanese voice track, then I hope the sub would be redone and contextually accurate, I would also settle for that as well.

    Xenoblade and Monster Hunter were the only games that I wanted to play, so i passed on the Wii U. When we get a lot more Xenoblade and other JRPG games on it maybe i will buy the switch when i get a cheap one.

    Same here! If it ever gets a Switch port I hope we get the real XCX and not the horrible localized version. I want the real experience.

    I don’t remember, was it Treehouse or 8-4 that worked on the localization?

  35. CrimsonX4

    That would be cool! I hope Bandai Namco considers it. Although different game series but we did get a .hack//G.U. Remaster collection recently. Maybe that’s a good sign?

    How would this work though? The map was on the controller screen. Splatoon 2 didn’t do a good job of implementing a map that was meant for another screen.

    The .hack collection is actually the thing that has raised my hopes recently. If a super niche franchise like that can be brought back seemingly out of nowhere, then perhaps there is hope for others as well. Like .hack, Xenosaga would be perfect, as they have never been put on digital marketplaces, the existing physical copies have become ridiculously expensive, and I and III were never even released in Europe. Only time will tell, however.

    You clearly haven’t seen it on a TV. The increase in resolution did wonders for that game.

  57. Michael Richardson

    December 1, 2017 at 4:35 pm

    I just don’t exaggerate the effect of a resolution bump on a highly stylized game like Mario Kart 8. It looks marginally better, but unless you’re comparing it with the original side-by-side, most people aren’t going to notice much of a difference.

  58. totenglocke

    Again, you haven’t actually seen it. It’s a very impressive improvement in the visuals. If you don’t care about graphics, then don’t buy it. But people who want a fun game AND to have it look amazing have the option.

    Disgusting freak who wants to look at girls with revealing clothes…, although I like pretty anime girls, I can’t stand perverted freaks like you…

    I read one of your idiotic comments on GameFAQs about JRPGs should stick to Sony consoles instead of child friendly Nintendo consoles. There’s a reason for that and that’s to protect our future generations.

    I also read your low IQ comments about how awful Tabata is and FFXV related stuff. Like seriously, something must not be right with your pea-size brain.

    So here’s some advice: Stop trying to lie and go back to that idiotic haven for trolls, GameFAQs and stay there.

    So it has to have Japanese voices because no matter ,no matter ,no matter what the English voice are going to be garage right?Have some respect for the voice acting industry and give them a chance to prove themselves on a case by case basis if they’ll do good or bad.And so you know I played Xenoblade Chronicles X and the voice acting is supreme absolute greatness so take your anti-western attitude and go watch some anime sub only somewhere else.

    Dude, chill. If you prefer dubs, good for you.
    I’m just saying that they should always include the option to switch between original audio and dub, that way both sides will be happy.
