sweet! the only downside to this is I need to catch up on Xenoblade before it comes

#5 Posted by 93BlackHawk93 (6436 posts) -

Today is a win for the Xeno bros!

I'll get excited for this once I actually get to see and hear more of the game. The last time we heard of the game all we got was one, measly battle to look at.

@93BlackHawk93: When it hits is the day I will buy a Wii-U.

Sweet. I still need to finish Xenoblade :(

#10 Edited by Heil68 (48394 posts) -

The only game I want for the WiiU.

#11 Edited by freedomfreak (44536 posts) -

Very good. I will most definitely pick it up.

#12 Edited by Shewgenja (11574 posts) -

Definitely getting a WiiU this Summer. No doubt about it, now.

#13 Edited by Ballroompirate (23866 posts) -

Well that just sealed the deal for me if I was gonna get a Wii-U or not this year.

#14 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11994 posts) -

AWWWWWWWWWWWWW YISS!

...uhhh I mean...Wii U sucks.

#15 Posted by Demonjoe93 (9793 posts) -

That's great to hear.

#16 Posted by p3anut (5999 posts) -

Can't wait for E3. We will finally get all the info on this game.

#17 Posted by good_sk8er7 (4325 posts) -

I can't wait for this game. I'm glad it's actually going to come out this year

I didint care for the characters or story of xenoblade but the combat was fun and the world itself was interesting.So yea I have some interest in X.

#19 Posted by Wild_man_22 (821 posts) -

That's pretty awesome if it actually makes that date. I'm cautious about wii u release dates given all the delays they have received over the last year.

But if it actually shows up this year count me for the DAY 1 HYPE!

That seems a bit too soon honestly. We haven't seen much of the game. I'm still thinking 2015 unless there's just an insane amount of updates and content shown at E3.

#21 Edited by Audacitron (968 posts) -

doesn't seem too soon to me. It was annnounced months before Titanfall for example.

#22 Edited by ZombeGoast (437 posts) -

I'm more excited for SMTxFE than X.

I second this.

@farrell2k: Yeah. The Wii U is quickly becoming one of my favorite Nintendo consoles.

Monolith's last X game sold about 1 million on a 100 million install base, yet people act like X something people really care about?

It will be about as successful as Pikmin 3 regardless of quality.

Well, people on here care about it, anyway.

In fairness to Xenoblade, it didn't receive a lot of advertising; at least in the U.S. People had to beg Nintendo to bring it over here. At least this is one getting some attention.

@StrongBlackVine: Your post would make sense if people were calling the Wii U savior or that it would sell millions. People here , in a site dedicated to gaming do care about it.

Did anyone said this game was going to be a savior?

#31 Posted by bbkkristian (14967 posts) -

@StrongBlackVine: considering it's the only AAA next gen console JRPG that has a 2014 release window, is from the company whose members used to be a part of SquareSoft, and it is confirmed for the west, it's a pretty big deal.

This.

If Wii U keeps getting as awesome looking games as X, I might have to buy one.

#33 Posted by XboxStache (1132 posts) -

Excellent. I highly anticipate it's release. Go Nintendo!

This game will flop.

Shut up, princess! This won't be a Mario Kart! *I have faith*

That's no way to talk to a Princess. This game will get McShea'd.

Awesome. I really hope it makes that date, but I have doubts.

#38 Posted by Seabas989 (11348 posts) -

Getting it day 1.

#40 Posted by AznbkdX (3650 posts) -

It's nice to hear that its coming sooner. Hopefully Yarn Yoshi and SMTXFE are really going to be coming. Its listed but maybe the cancel hammer may come anyways. I doubt it... but you never know.

@yokofox33: X has been in Development since Xenoblade was released in Japan back in 2010. 4 years is a enough time for a developer to fully flesh out a game.
