XenoBlade RPG on Wii from Nintendo

XenoBlade RPG on Wii from Nintendo on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The MonolithSoft game previously known as Monado: Beginning of the World for Wii has been renamed as XenoBlade. Given how the developer's Tetsuya Takahashi has previously worked on XenoGears with Square Enix and the XenoSaga series of RPG titles before Nintendo purchased MonolithSoft from Bandai Namco, it makes sense that his next major RPG project is being renamed to follow the 'Xeno-' line, and this is something fans feel should have been done for the company's DS RPG Soma Bringer, which played very much like an entry in the series that started back on the PSone.

The game's official teaser site can be found here and is expected for release in Japan this Spring and around the world later in 2010.

What ? This Spring ??? That's early :s ! I mean OK we already saw bits of it at last year's E3, but i'd expected it more for a summer or fall 2010 for Japan...

I just hope it doesn't end up being a rushed game. Since it's Monolith Soft and it's a RPG i guess not... they're RPG makers after all Smilie.

So well get 8 Nintendo 1st party games this year? Smilie Well, so much for the "there are no games to play on Wii" bs...

The music on the site is fantastic and the image is epic.

It looks quite different from how Monado was when the game was announced, though. Interesting...I'm not an RPG nut usually but these two new Wii releases have jumped right up my list!

EdEN, remember we've not had E3 yet either...Smilie

This year is going to make everyone forget 2009 even happened.

I recall Monado: Beginning of the World not looking too great at E3. Though, it may turn out to be great.

It looked like a spin-off of Final Fantasy XII, and many presumed it was Yasumi Matsuno-san's long-awaited return to form, with his Nintendo project.
