And apparently Soraya Saga is back on the team? She tweeted about the event yesterday. Can't contain the hype.

YAY I can watch this without all the annoying lag.

The music and atmosphere is so pretty, I'm crying @ this Direct...

So was that Xenoblade 2, an HD remake?
It's Xenoblade that much is true.

I couldn't bring myself to beat the first one. But now it looks like I have to.

Yay for the HD version. Graphics and music both beautiful!

Looks like online play or local multi at least.

"X" would be a pretty cool title I reckon.

Yeah, I don't see where there's any Monster Hunter; it looks just like Xenoblade with a new art style.

And mechs.

Yup, Me too. I've finally decided to get one. Monolithsoft's game, plus the New Megaten/Fire Emblem, plus The Wonderful 101 plus Windwaker HD has sealed the deal.

Best part of direct for me. Not saying much, I guess? Anyway I find it interesting that they showed it off in both the NA and JP directs... does this mean a near simultaneous release is possible?

Provided it doesn't go overkill with multiplayer focus, this will probably be the title that sells me a WiiU. Given that we got actual footage I'm assuming it's further along than the new Zelda (non-WW remake) WiiU and SMT x Fire Emblem.

Hoping for a summer 2014 release with a speedy port and no Project Rainfall begging/hoop jumping.
