Xenoblade Chronicles X has RPG fans drooling at the mouth for a North America release. While we don’t have a date yet, Japan will be getting the game April 29th. Director of Xenoblade Chronicles X Tetsuya Takahashi talked about Monolith’s first HD game in a recent interview.
An open world is a single phrase, but it wasn’t a simple thing to realize. As you know, it was our first HD title. The environment for development was drastically different compared to anything we had done before when it comes to distributing resources or formulating workloads. You can’t expect things to get done in a day and it finally took form as a result of many adjustments. There were many hardships, but it was worth the trouble as the gameplay turned out to be pleasant, even if I say so myself!
Open world games do lend themselves to be harder to program for by offering such a vast variety of content within them, so it will be interesting to see just how hard Monolith pushes the Wii U. Are you excited for Xenoblade Chronicles X? Let us know in the comments.
