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.
