In 2007, Monolith Software was acquired by Nintendo. Since then, Takahashi produced a Diablo-esque action RPG called Soma Bringer on the DS.

Xenoblade Chronicles

He later earned considerable acclaim for directing and writing the Wii role-playing game Xenoblade Chronicles, an open world title that is widely considered one of the best role-playing games of its generation.

His next project is Xenoblade Chronicles X, which will be released for the Wii U. It is a spiritual follow-up to the original Xenoblade Chronicles and is set for release in 2015.
