Dare I hope?

If this is a new Xeno game (and the music is excellent on the site), then consider it a purchase for me. I've been thinking about one for the past few months anyway, this would seal the deal.

It's just Monado, re-branded (and maybe reskinned?). There's a trailer. 
 

  
It is with a very high probability NOT a new Xeno game.

Trailer's really old and clearly work in progress but yeah, it's certainly the same game, given the blade and other such designs on the website. Same team as the Xenogears/saga games, so, as close to a real sequel as you'll be getting. They're owned by Nintendo now.

There are mech-like things in it at least ;)

It was speculated to be the next Takahashi/Saga game before they made it a Xeno title and now it looks like they're making that official. Why, exactly, is there a high probability that this is not a Xeno game?

That's a dumb name. Is that just their thing now, so you know its an RPG made by them? Add Xeno? From what I could tell Monado was nothing like a xenogears/saga game at all, but if anyone could contrive a connective thread between this, a clear fantasy game, to the rest of the xeno universe it would be these dudes. They got convoluted nailed down pat.

This has me a little bit aroused. Proves the Wii was a fantastical investment after all! :D

What little of the game was shown at E3 was hardly enough to judge it.  After all, despite being sci-fi, there were areas and concepts in the game that were representative of anything but science fiction.
