Seriously, this 60 character limit for topic titles is killing me.
Anyway, yes, you saw that right. Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii already had an open world of a staggering size, and Xenoblade Chronicles X has a map that is more than five times that size.
This information comes from a new interview with Monolith Soft in the newest Edge.
Takahashi on X: "Vehicles are called Dolls. They are 5 Times larger than a person. So to get the same feel as Xenoblade Chronicles, the map would need to be 5 times bigger. The game world in X is e in fact even bigger than that."
Just to be clear, this is the kind of scope and scale that the game maintains on a constant level in a world that large:
That is... really impressive, really. Even though I wasn't much of a fan of the original Xenoblade Chronicles, I can't wait for Xenoblade Chronicles X to come out.
