Announced all the way back in January 2013 under the working title 'X', Xenoblade Chronicles X finally has a name--and a release window. It's the successor to Monolith Soft's last Wii-exclusive JRPG, Xenoblade Chronicles, and will be coming to the Wii U sometime in 2015.
A trailer shown during Nintendo's E3 2014 press conference revealed some information about the game's story. It appears that humanity has been forcibly removed from Earth--that, or the Earth has been destroyed, it's not entirely clear. But what is clear is that there are a ton of folks riding badass mechs and blowing stuff up, seemingly in hopes of inhabiting a new planet. Be sure to check out the trailer below to see for yourself.
While it's clear that Xenoblade Chronicles X takes place in the Chronicles universe, we can't help but wonder: Is it a direct sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles? Or does it cover events that occurred in the past--or maybe even the future? Guess we'll have to wait until 2015 to find out.
