Those games still sold way better than BK though. My point is that Monolithsoft is not a developer unable to develop games which sell well. BK is just an unprofitable series because there isn't much appeal. Even the shitty Monolithsoft games by the NxC team sell pretty well. If Honne ever wants to make a game like BK again, it'll have to be as a new IP imo.

So I was staring at this image, and thinking a bit, and I think I see explicit confirmation that this is a direct sequel to Xenoblade.

As those of you who've played Xenoblade will know, there's a day/night cycle in the game; different monsters appear at different times, for instance, with occasional 'special weather conditions' leading to special monsters appearing.

While we don't see any day/night cycle directly, there *is* a clock for some reason, and I think inspecting the clock does give a pretty big hint that this might be a sequel to Xenoblade.

That's a great catch. Solid observation. Along with the weapon switching (?) mechanic and the mechs, it's obvious that this game will have lots more choices in combat. Definitely a huge plus, especially for a game where you only control one character directly.

serious, even all of xenoblades grass moved, if I am not mistaken. I was a little disappointing that the characters are not moving interacting with the grass still though. Looks like it is wind only again.

It was not "marketed". The game's trailer was shoved into an E3 press kit with absolutely zero fanfare...

Just woke up, I'm dying here. I have a copy of Xenoblade but no Wii so I haven't played that yet. However Xenogears is my favorite game of all time and those little details in the trailer tugged on my heartstrings in all the right ways.

If this doesn't get a simultaneous NA release I'm just going to import a Wii U.

I feel like COD has grass that moves. I may be wrong. Haven't played one since 4, and even then I didn't own that.

Indeed, probably one of the best voice casts for any game.

While I am very excited for the game, the visual design leaves me a bit disappointed. If it were another series I might not have noticed, but it just seems a bit dull in comparison to Xenoblade. And the face at the end made me think, "Are they going to try hyper-realistic anime faces? Because that doesn't usually work out well..." But, honestly, I'm just excited to be getting another one, so I won't complain TOO much no matter what they do.

I am more inclined to believe its a new ip (or a xenogears related title at my most optimistic.) What point win there in not just calling it Xenoblade 2, if that's what it is.

Anything would be better than the terrible face models of Xenoblade.

Sigh....alright nintendo you want me to by a wiiU.....Oh that's right! I'm one of the few mutherfuckers that actually owns a wiiU!

Over the course of a few pages I guess we lost about 10 people at the most by it having multiplayer in it. I mean why wouldn't it, I can't remember the last time a single player game was a bigger system seller than a multiplayer one so I don't know why this is a surprise.

Needs more color, and the face at the end looked like ass, but then again Xenoblade looked way, way better when it was released than when it was first unveiled, right? And they didn't get the Xenoblade composers back? That sucks.

Everything else looks great.

I admittedly hated them at first, but got used to them. Though obviously I would NOT want to go back to them. It's obvious that they won't have to cut quite so many corners with this new game, but it doesn't guarantee that it won't look awkward all the same. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Disaster also had fine character art. It's too bad the Takahashi team has a shitty character artist! Some of Ep3's character art was by Choco iirc. The guy who did the mecha designs for the Vector mechs in the series. It's the internal dudes who suck.

It's a bummer this exists because it means, if Xenoblade's anything to go by, we now know the best the Wii U can look ;)

Which looks quite good, but I'm just saying, Xenoblade's grass textures were the most amazing graphical thing on the wii to me. Just because there was so much of it.

This is just speculation but at the 0:41 mark in the trailer, it looks like the "doll" that is stationed next to you has ether flowing through its armour just like the faces had in Xenoblade. Could be ether, anyway.

that would be pretty sick, and i am sure they could scale back IQ for splitscreen, its not like it is unheard of. Its just will they do it?

Seems like it could be a first, to play a gigantic open world RPG splitscreen. I am sure it has been done somewhere, but I dont remember any.

I thought the exact same thing, but going back to watch the trailer again I don't know. I think the reddish box is the monster HP, your HP is below that. I think the monster that jumps actually kills "Tester" who had pretty low HP (hence the warning at the bottom perhaps?).

If you look at some of the other fights, the monster HP is that red box and even in the gif that red box seems to match the HP on the jumper.
