Nintendo released a 24-minute video of upcoming role-playing game “Xenoblade Chronicles X” on Friday, which will reach the Wii U in Japan on April 29, and sometime during 2015 in North America. The video is in Japanese, but shows extensive gameplay of the latest installment of the Xeno series and successor to 2012 Wii game “Xenoblade Chronicles.”
"Xenoblade Chronicles X” was first revealed in January 2013 and demonstrated during the Electronic Entertainment Expo in 2013.
The title is being directed by Monolith Soft president and co-founder Tetsuya Takahashi. In November of 2014, developer Monolith Soft announced they were in the final stages of development and planned to launch the game during the first six months of 2015 in Japan, and during the second half of the year in North America and Europe.
The team also said they had created their own web site for the game, something done without publisher Nintendo’s permission, but approved by the time it launched. They also said “Xenoblade Chronicles X” would have “online elements” but revealed no further details.
