So during Nintendo's press briefing, Iwata mentioned that MonolithSoft (Xenoblade Chronicles) is at work on a game for the Wii U. This isn't news in itself, as it should be expected from a Nintendo owned company. But it was also confirmed that it is a new IP (which I guess could still have the word Xeno somewhere in the title? Technically?) and is being headed up by Xenogears creator Tetsuya Takahashi, so it is all but guaranteed to be great. So this, along with the projects from Retro Studios and Nintendo Tokyo studios have created my trinity of anticipated unannounced Wii U titles. Anyway, I thought there should be a place for MonolithSoft fans to gather and say, "Hey, that's great."
It certainly is exciting that they are working on something new. I loved the cast of Xenoblade, and I hope they can make something even better. However, I suspect we probably won't see this until the Nintendo Fall Conference of 2013 (assuming they have one).
This is pretty much the one game that could potentially put me on board with the WiiU. While I felt Xenoblade was weaker than Xenogears and Xenosaga in some respects, I still felt it was one of the best JRPG's of this generation and easily the best game on the Wii. I really want to see where they go from here.
Whatever they're working on, it had better be an RPG with giant robots and religious overtones.
