The game is apparently scheduled for April in Japan, but only 2015 in North America, so I assume the release will depend on localization time. I was hoping to hear the characters in English this time, but the trailer is still in Japanese with subtitles. Got my fingers crossed for another NoE localization, but NoA will probably handle it this time.
I love the original Xenoblade, even if it was a little too big. (I still finished it at 135+ hours.) Really looking forward to X, but at about five-times(?) the size... I don't know if I can handle that much Xenoblade!
On a side note, I was a little surprised that Monster Games is doing the N3DS version of the original Xenoblade, but I guess it makes sense. I wonder if 3DS ports is what Nintendo will use Monster Games for from now on.
On 26 February at 22:00 (UTC+9), there will be a new trailer showcasing the exploration of the wide game world.
Interestingly, they also stated that this game is rated C (15+) by CERO. Other examples of CERO:C include Fatal Frame and Monster Hunter (according to Niconico). Maybe Xenoblade X will contain animated blood?
The success of Xenoblade was absolutely a factor, but I think the success of Awakening also played a role. Those two games really showed NoA that there are still gamers who want quality games that aren't just Mario/Zelda. Especially after how games like Glory of Heracles and Golden Sun 3 were relatively poorly received (justified in Heracles' case).
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
