You may not be entirely aware of this but Nintendo will be releasing a series of five videos across the next five months all detailing the most exciting focal points of the upcoming action-RPG Xenoblade Chronicles X. It’s now the 1st of September which means the very first of this short series has just been released online. I honestly don’t know too much about this title. I’ve been excited about it for a while simply because it’s a Wii U game that doesn’t revolve itself around already established Nintendo characters and that’s basically all I need nowadays to get excited.
This new series of short, information-filled promotional videos has been perfectly designed to educate people like myself who’re interested in the game yet not so sure about why they should absolutely get it on release. Episode one details three key features of the upcoming title: The world of the game, the organisation your character will be a part of, and the types of missions you’ll take on throughout the game. To say the very least; there’s a damn good reason why people are so excited for Xenoblade Chronicles X, and this video is just the very tip of the iceberg.
Xenoblade Chronicles X was released in across Japan back in April of this year, but us in the West can expect it to hit local video game retailer shelves in December, just in time for the holiday season. Make yourself a cup of coffee, grab a small snack, sit back in your chair, and watch this seven minute video. If you’re not excited about the game now, you will be very soon.
