Nintendo Direct Highlights Xenoblade Chronicles X This Friday

This Friday, April 24th, Nintendo will showcase the upcoming RPG Xenoblade Chronicles X for the Wii U in a special segment in their recurring Nintendo Direct video series. The presentation will include new English language video content and will show off many of the new features, characters, and story elements from the latest game in the Xeno franchise. All of this goes down tomorrow at 11 am PT/2PM ET so set your alarms and ready yourself for some hype.

But if you can’t wait till tomorrow to get your Xenoblade fix, Nintendo has also launched a trailer featuring new story content that explores the mysterious world of Chronicles X in detail. For more, just look below and take a gander at the sort of storytelling that awaits gamers when the title launches later this year.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is the latest game in the long-running Xeno franchise which began with the release of Xenogears in 1998. Though the series has been rebranded several times, first as Xenosaga by Namco Bandai, and most recently under the Xenoblade banner with Nintendo, the series stands out in its use of anime-styled mecha and robots, large and sweeping narrative, and a tendency to use religious imagery whenever possible to create roleplaying experiences unlike most others on home consoles. From the trailer above, it seems the same can be said for this, the latest game in the franchise’s long history.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
