Monolith Soft’s highly-anticipated Wii U-exclusive title, formerly referred to as simply “X,” has today been given its official name, a release window, and a jaw-dropping and action-packed announcement trailer. Titled Xenoblade Chronicles X, the enormous open-world Sci-Fi role-playing game will be released exclusively in 2015.
A number of features and details for the intergalactic behemoth have also been posted on the official Nintendo @ E3 website.
Xenoblade Chronicles X features:
- Riding and controlling a weaponized mech, players can explore every inch of the massive open world displayed in gorgeous high-definition graphics. The world is filled with strange and imaginative creatures, from small bugs to giant dinosaurs.
- As characters improve in different classes, they will learn new combat and defensive skills, or Arts. Players can customize the Arts palette as their characters learn new Arts. All Arts have a “recast” time – once cast, the player must wait out a “cooldown” period before that Art can be used again.
- Players can customize everything about the main character’s appearance, including gender, shapes, height, skin color, voice and tattoos.
