I feel like this is Nintendo's version of the final fantasy series. I hope the Xenoblade Chronicles continues to expand. This will surely keep me busy for a long time

I guess but Xenoblade games are actually loosely connected stories

This looks insanely good, and the battle system with all its complexities makes me go tingly all over. I spend so many hours learning all the different blades and how to utilize them in battle in Xeno 2, can’t wait to get my hands on this new system, it looks super interesting.

And then they have something like casual or safety mode to make sure you never need to use any of those complex mechanics. You can probably slide these options on or off whenever you want too, to make it too tempting to not use immediately when you get stuck.

I'll never get tired of watching this masterpiece direct !! The game has so much content, plus the interlink mechanic is just INSANE! They definitely incorporated a truly amazing mechanic after the Driver/Blade one in XC2, Monolith truly never dissapoints!!!

the best thing in Xeno 2 is Shounen style storywriting. make everything looks simpler and cooler. also BGM is masterpiece too. I know XC1 is great but its cant be as cool/fun as XC2.

@WOLF 222 I'd hard disagree on this. I'm a big fan of the Xenoblade series but I always found the gameplay in 2 really boring. The combat system is just way too simple for me to enjoy. It's interesting to see everyone talk about 1, 2 and 3 as if X doesn't exist. In my opinion X is by far the very best game in the series, the combat is just way too good and the open world is the best the series has had. Was really hoping for an X2 instead of 3, but hey that's just my humble opinion!

@WOLF 222 comparing a genre defining RPG with its glorified waifu simulator sequel that just served to remove everything that made the original great is kind of hilarious. XC2 is not at all comparable to XC1.

Monolith was the best acquisition Nintendo ever made, and Nintendo turned out to be the BEST home for Monolith. As someone who has been following Takahashi since Xenogears, I couldn’t be happier. It went from very worrying 12 years ago when “Monado, Dawn of the New World” wasn’t slated to be localized into English, I was worried I’d never get to play another Monolith game again. Then Operation Rainfall happened, and the rest is history.
Millahtime Hace un mes
@Fuzzy You’re kidding right? Xenoblade effectively had the illusion of an infinite draw distance for massive environments running on the Wii and EVEN the 3DS. Achieving Gaur Plains on the Wii with the entire geography being visible on screen (less textures/foliage/monsters) and no loading zones was technical wizardry. Compare that to Elden Ring, which has noticeable “fog” the farther you look into the distance. Other than key landmarks like the Elden tree, your actual view of the map is fairly constrained around the player. Further out, there’s fog. Xenoblade achieved what it did…running on Wii! You can be at one end of Gaur Plains and see the mountains/terrain on the other end. No loading between the different elevations either. That’s just the technical magic. On top of that, they design visually artistic environments and geography. They pioneered the modern design principles of open world games having visually iconic landmarks to help orient the player and make the world visually interesting. The opposing mountain arches of Gaur Plains is iconic. In BOTW…Dueling Peaks, Death Mountain, or Hyrule Castle centered on the map, visible from everywhere and visually iconic. That design paradigm has been highly influential on the industry, and was really fleshed out by Monolith and then BOTW. So even regardless of visual fidelity and graphical effects, their environmental art design is second to none. I imagine they played a big part in designing a lot of the iconic geography in Breath of the Wild, and helping the technical team achieve that one massive seamless environment with an infinite draw distance (for the geography). That is why I said Monolith is the best acquisition Nintendo is made. Not just for Xenoblade, but for their work on Breath of the Wild as well.
Fuzzy Hace un mes
@Narius_Jaden No, the Wii hardware didn't hold back Monlith because even on PS3 and 360 there weren't bigger JRPGs than Xenoblade. Monolith held back itself like they're still doing. They're not great at creating engines, that's a fact. And they are the ones who choose to create big but mostly empty open worlds. Because other than monsters and creatures there's nothing else in their worlds.
Narius_Jaden Hace un mes
I'm not saying you're wrong, but the intensely bad marketing and the Wii hardware held back Xenoblade 1 so badly. I mean god knows that Xenoblade is such an awesome rpg series, but back then I remember finally being able to rent the game once and being turned off by how dated it felt even back then visually. The definitive edition really saved the day for me in terms of getting to enjoy the game as it truly should have looked from the start. I just hope someday Nintendo doesn't take half a decade or more to catch up in graphical fidelity >.

I was already hyped for Xenoblade 3, but I'm afraid this direct is gonna be the death of me because now I'm wayyy too excited. I'm also glad this comment section is pretty positive from what I've seen so far! Looks like there's a lot of people that seem to be interested in the franchise for the first time and I gotta say, if you're thinking about it... Pick the xenoblade series up!! Honestly, one of the best JRPGs. I first started diving in when Nintendo was teasing (and then soon after releasing) Xenoblade 2 and it was one of the best choices I've made. After finishing the game, I instantly picked up the definitive version when it came out a few years later.

Too many people got angry at 2 but I devoted the time into it and loved the game. I tried to get people to at least look into trying it for themselves as it's is a game that should get better attention than it has. I'll be definitely insta buying three in a couple of weeks.

@Quintessence NIntendo doing a horrible job marketing the wii u killed the system faster than the console itself. Wii u is a hidden gem imo. Its unfortunate we live in the timeline where monolithsoft poured their heart out and made a game that fits the narrative and settings of their older titles as well as made the best open world and the best gameplay in the blade franchise and it didn't sell well due to being made for the console nintendo horribly marketed oh and it got unecessary hate by some at first for things like censorship or mechanics being too complex for many to handle. Also to answer your question on Torna in 2 yes its much better and you aren't as reliant on fusion combos for damage anymore and talent arts were brought back along with taunt status and a vanguard system and they tweaked and reworked some of 2's gameplay mechanics making a faster and smoother and fun experience than 2.

I wanted to avoid spoilers but this trailer was very minimal in that aspect, so that was a good surprise. I already ordered the Special edition and have been a Xenofan since Xenogears, but this looks to be one of the best games of the series, and thats no small feat to accomplish either.
G G Hace un mes
It’s really interesting to see FF7 Remake’s mid-battle character swapping, Xenoblade 1s chain attack mechanic and 2s art and class system. Not to mention increasing party size from 3 to 6(Which I wished they had done sooner to be honest, but I digress.) Combined with Xenoblade Chronicles 1’s gem system, Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s item system, and the cooking mechanics likely inspired by combining Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s and FF15s cooking systems, I think this game shows a lot of potential in terms of fixing some of the issues from the prior two entries (Xenoblade Chronicles X’s system was too big, to grindy, had WAY too much focus on gear instead of leveling, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 had way too much focus designing gear, classes, stats, and even class stats around Blades. My biggest worry however, is that the dev team either fails to deliver in terms of storytelling and world building, as I feel like Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s story just didn’t really feel personally impactful, and Xenoblade Chronicles X really overdid one overarching narrative that dragged on for way to long as it’s possible hole story (Although I did love some of the side quests and affinity missions. I just wish they didn’t make some of them a requirement for the main story.)

​@Dave I'm not sure it's in this trailer, but there's a screenshot/clip somewhere of a menu that shows that you do get skills from mastering classes. Also, saying a game refuses to allow freedom when each character can be one of 20+ classes and can have master arts from any of the others is an odd claim. It might not be freedom how you want it, but there's lots of options. In addition, I absolutely can 'blame' (although that's a weird term for it) you for your worries considering you're the only hardcore fan I've seen who has these problems.

I was already a huge fan of the Xenoblade games since the first, and was already excited for Xenoblade 3 before watching this Nintendo Direct, but after? Now I can hardly contain my excitement! There are so many amazing things being added to an already amazing game series to make things even better! Classes? Check. New battle mechanics? Check. DBZ Fusion? Check. The only thing that really makes me sad is the Nintendo Switch is severely holding back the game's graphics quality. Could you imagine playing this at 4K on a Super Nintendo Switch, or Switch Pro, or whatever Nintendo's next console will be? It would be even greater!
ZKatt Hace un mes
I don't think even a Switch Pro/ Switch 2 could do 4k for this game. At least not true 4k. I would settle for a locked 1080p though. XC2 and XCDE had some issues when it came to graphical clarity, and at least a clean 1080p would fix that

@Narukami for rdr2 I think they should strive for 4k 120 fps. It's completely doable. It's not like that was released on very old hardware. And we all know most ps5 games don't even run native 4k on ps5 most ate just an upscale version which means increasing the framerate is completely doable. As far as this game though it's not a old game, it's literally a brand new release not a remaster so in this day it should be very easy to make it hit atpesdt 60fps Even on the switch. It's not like it's that graphically demanding honestly and woth the combat system it showed us it almost needs it to be a guaranteed 30 fps with zero dips or the much preferred 60 fps. Having said all that in no means I say this is a terrible game I'm just saying they should delay it and at the very least make sure it's a constant 30 fps with no dips even if they don't want to try for 60 fps. Anything below 25 is extremely noticeable and it does make a difference when you are playing. You are playing with a sort of lag at that point and that's no fun. From what I saw story looks good, graphics are fine, viive acting seemed hit or miss but just happy there is any and the unstable frame rate. For all we know this is already fixed abd the final game has no frame rate dips or very little but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned. Even during very little action scenes I saw some stability issues. That's just my interpretation though.

@ava for life I have a PS5, a PC and a Switch, and a 120Hz TV. I like to think I've played all sorts of games with different frame rates and as someone who's played XC1 and 2, I don't even see why 60fps should be considered for a game of this scale on a handheld from 5 years ago, the same way no one asked for it with other beautiful large scale games like BotW and SMT5, or even 60fps on 'modern' games like GoW or H: Zero Dawn because they were made for hardware from 2013. That's like saying we should get 4k120Hz max settings RDR2 on the PS5 just becasue it's 'next-gen', even though it just roughly has the power of a RTX 2060S. It's not very realisitic and even as a hope, it sounds like it's coming from someone who doesn't even have a clue what they're talking about, I mean no offense. None of us know for sure how the game will play until it comes out but Monolith have proved several things mutliple times including that they can make an extremely complex battle system work even on the small screen that the Switch has, whilst playing it at an apparently unplayable framerate. If anyone is really worried, they should either a) wait till the game comes out and see what people say about it or b) not pay any money and write an email to Nintendo complaining you won't play the game until they force Monolith to make the game play at a locked 60 whilst not draining the Switch's battery in an hour. Then wait.

@ava for life "just because you're okay with a very laggy slow game" very much is an insult. Since you're putting me down, while putting something else down in the process. If you have to insult something, while saying just because you like it, you're insulting the original person. Even if that wasn't your intention. Especially when you start saying it's a fact, taking away the ability for someone to be okay with something or say it's good.

@Cam Harkness I said an overwhelming majority would prioritize frame rate above quality. I didn't insult you for enjoying 30 fps either lol. I'm just stating this demo shown doesn't look fun to play considering it dips well under 30 fps and sometimes to 20 fos given the fact that it's a faster paced combat system

But then said it's not an insult... It's a fact that 30 fps is laggy and unplayable for everyone besides me.

I think this is possibly the best Xenoblade game so far. Xenoblade X's class system brought unique ideas to the fold of the Xenoblade franchise, and here's Xenoblade 3 going as far as it can with those ideas!

Xenoblade was my favourite Wii game. Xenoblade X was my favourite Wii U game. And Xenoblade 2 would be my favourite Switch game if it wasn’t for Breath of the Wild. It’s crazy to think how fast this franchise has grown on me, and the roller coaster of emotions I have experienced after playing each title is unlike anything I have experienced in gaming. The quality of this series is on par with the best Nintendo franchises. Every Xenoblade game to date has offered a rich 100+ hour experience packed with amazing characters, story, combat, soundtrack and exploration. Monolith Soft even worked on Breath of Wild, so it’s no surprise this game’s open world looks amazing. It even looks to be taking advantage of the hardware better than anything on Switch so far.

Damn, and here I thought I couldn't get any more hyped for this game. Combining all three of XC1's, XC2's, and XCX's combat elements into one game works surprisingly well, and I was right in that's what they were going for this whole time in terms of building up to this game. My favorite part is the improved version of XCX's class system. Really lets you get into customizing your characters' play styles, and that's one of the best things I enjoy about class systems. I'm wondering if NLA and the survivors of Mira will have anything to do with this story, seeing as so many gameplay and visual elements are coming from XCX. Perhaps that "new story" hinted at in the season pass will be it. I sure hope so. XCX is one of my favorites in the series.

@The Legacy of Gaming XCX2 needs to happen. Monolithsoft can't leave us on that cliffhanger forever. X is even supposedly Takahashi's favorite xenoblade and he proved it because he pops up in the x servers a lot. We need an X port as well though to introduce it to newer audiences. Hopefully Monolith and Nintendo wouldn't obsess about mainstream appeal with an X 2 and X port though cause that would aggrivate me. Tired of losing options and customization features because they want the games to appeal to a larger audience.

Same man. I was disappointed when I heard XCX2 wasn't coming out and it was this instead, but this one looks promising.

So hype for this game. Think I can echo almost every comment already made. While not a direct sequel to XCX on Wii U, it's the closest yet - I'll take it! Ready to pause life so I can immerse in XC3. Also, vote with your money, buy this game, so it's success will lead to XC4 or XCX-2 on Switch Pro or whatever with better frame rates, higher resolution, even bigger worlds. Just more please!

Back in 2021 I got Xenoblade Definitive Edition for christmas. I just thought it looked interesting and I had been playing Shulk in smash since the Smash 4 days. It slowly over the next three months grew to be one of my favorite games ever, and eventually climbed up to my favorite game of all time. After that, I instantly bought Xenoblade 2 and played it fast. It was another case of awesome game. Didnt overtake 1 for me, but still one of my favorite games ever. After that, I waited. I couldnt buy Xenoblade X because my wiiu didnt have storage and I need to find an sd card.but when february rolled around, I broke my friends' eardrums with how loud I yelled when this game got revealed. This will be the greatest Xenoblade game, perhaps even the greatest Xeno game ever. Thank you Monolith Soft for the incredible rollercoaster of Xenoblade Chronicles.

This game’s art style seems like it’s taken the best parts of the previous 2 games and even from X. Along with a unique style of it’s own. The gameplay looks like an evolved version of 2. The characters seem very interesting wit great designs but I do not like the dub voice acting which is why I’ll switch to japanese like I did with the other games. The world looks absolutely beautiful. And the music is as good as ever. This seems to be doing everything a sequel should do. I think this game can not only be the best Xenoblade game, but also Game of the Year.
