Xenoblade Creators Working on 3DS Game

Xenoblade Creators Working on 3DS Game on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The folk behind the popular Wii RPG Xenoblade Chronicles, Monolith, have begun a recruiting drive to find talent for a new 3DS project.

The Japanese developer, currently based in Tokyo, are the brains behind Xenosaga, Baten Kaitos, Disaster: Day of Crisis and even lent a helping hand to Nintendo on the latest Zelda game, Skyward Sword.

The studio recently expanded to new offices in Kyoto, and is now hoping to bring new effects, motion and 3DCG designers onboard to put together a new 3D game. Monolith are also crafting something new for Nintendo's Wii U.

What would you like to see Monolith bring to the 3DS and Wii U table? Something new? A sequel to one of their past projects?

I'd like them to make Baten Kaitos 3 for the Wii U and something new for the 3DS. Another Baten Kaitos is on my wishlist for its awesome card-based gameplay more than anything else. Smilie

This one better come to America a hell of alot earlier...

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

New IP - using the Xenoblade engine and whoever designed those environments!

Please give our little random review show a try;

I'm hoping there's a Baten Kaitos HD collection for the Wii U since I never got to play the GC versions, and they're pretty expensive wherever you look.

That's alongside the new games they're working on. I wonder what genre they'll try with the 3DS.

That would be brilliant as well since I never got to play the second Baten Kaitos, as it never came out in Europe. I'm sure there are quite a few people who'd like to play the games but as you said, they're quite expensive now. From what I've seen though, I'd still say that about £30 is well worth it for Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean, as it's one of the best JRPGs the Gamecube had to offer.

Would like to see more Xenoblade or at least games in that style.
