Just noticed that there's a bit in the trailer where the main character's mech fights a bigger mech. I can't wait.

Wouldn't really make sense, if you've seen the ending of Xenoblade.

I just noticed a significant battle system change from Xenoblade. Look at the scene at around 0:36 in the trailer. The player is using a sword weapon to do melee attacks, but then right after that he switches to a pistol range attack. This doesn't change any of the skill assignments at the bottom of the screen, so this has to be either a secondary weapon or a normal secondary attack of the weapon. Interesting...

Probably takes place sometime after the end of the game where they are in the new Universe. I'm guessing there's a new threat on the world the Homs/Machina ended up on. With Shulk maybe leading some expedition force that encounters these new enemies.

With the help of the Machina the Homs have developed their own Faced Mechon counterparts called Dolls. Dunban makes a comment near the end about the Machina sharing their advanced tech with the Homs so I don't think this is out of the realm of possibility.

Just my speculation.

The game looks absolutely incredible, no wonder Nintendo saved it for last.

The thing that really sealed the deal for me was the inclusion of the 'doll' chilling out on the peak of that mountain and actually being able to fly across the environments. Fuck me.

Yeah, a prequel seems unnecessary -- and would be a bit of a copout. Whatever it is, though, I will buy it.

Yea, a sequel would make much more sense if it were to be related to Xenoblade.

Xenoblade spoiler:
So they all live on the Bionis and the Machina make these mechs for the people of Bionis.

EDIT: Pretty much what VanillaCakeIsBurning said.

Xenoblade was one of the best games I've played in recent years, so I hope this can live it up it. Looks amazing so far though. Great sense of scale, music is fantastic, combat looks fun.

Definitely a keeper!

Shulk is the new bad guy

Maybe because Fiora got all her body parts back except one.

Rewatching this trailer for the 20th time, it dawned on my what was so compelling. It was that feeling. That unique touch. That sense of adventure.

This is a feeling that's drastically different from the vast majority of games this past gen. Yes, there are definitely exceptions - Dark Souls, Skyrim, etc.

But most of the AAA projects and new IPs emphasized something completely different: Scale. Grandeur. Realism.

And while this has touches of all of those aspects, the music, the art, the entire package, screams ADVENTURE. When the mech takes flight and the music swells, you soar with it. This is a feeling that has become so rare for me in modern gaming. As much as I love Zelda, it's also something that was desperately missing from Skyward Sword. This game doesn't just seem grand...it feels epic in the same way Ocarina of Time felt epic the first time I played it.

It's almost enough to make me get emotional.

If it is a MMO or requires online, it is not for me though, i only play offline games

I did not even play Diablo 3 because required me to be online

On now this is Nintendo. The likelihood of this requiring online are near zero.

So if I'm understanding this correctly, Nintendo just enters the HD era and is already showing RPG's like this. I believe Wii U has a bright future if they continue the trend.

If i can play a proper offline compaign without chat screens and silly stuff like that, will probably buy a WiiU for that game (as well as for a new Zelda anyway)

Indeed, Diablo 3 case is a bit extreme one, but i cant support that kind of behavious on behalf of developers, that is how it all starts and i will never be a part of the destruction of proper SP gaming

I dont care about having online, i am only against the online only part
