As a select few may tell from my user name, Xenogears is a very memorable and important video game to me. I am very excited to post that a new Xenoblade quasi sequel has just been announced by Monolith Soft and it looks INCREDIBLE. If it's only for the Wii U I will buy one for this;



Xenoblade is a superb game but they had to downgrade the hell out of the graphics for the Wii. Not happening this time!

Xenogears is actually where the first part of my screenname came from.

Geesh, I wish this was coming for 360. Looks great.

Wasn't even remotely interested in the Wii U until I saw this trailer. So psyched.

Mine too, Weltall was Fei's Gear. I wish this was coming for 360 as well. I like to collect achievements on 360 thus I try to buy all my games for that system only.

Pretty much this, though as excited as I am for this I will likely wait on purchasing both the system and game for a while to get caught up with other games.

Never got into the Xeno games. Xenoblade Chronicles seems to be very well reviewed. Not sure how this passed me by. I may wait for this new one, however. I don't know that I have time for another game that's so involving especially when a new HD title is forthcoming.

XenoGEARS was the first game in the series. XenoSAGA (1-3) were prequels. XenoBLADE is a "spiritual successor" to those games but aside from a similar feel and a feel things here and there XenoBLADE is more of a standalone title. It was actually renamed from "Monado". This game I posted is another game within this "series" but hasn't been confirmed whether or not it's XenoBLADE 2 yet.

You're missing out. Do you like JRPGs like Star Ocean, Valkyrie Profile, etc?

Ahem, Star Ocean 2 is one of the best RPGs of all time in my opinion which is why I was asking if games like that appealed to him so he could possibly start with Xenogears. Even so, SO4's story and most characters were awful but I still enjoyed the game. SO2>SO3>SO1>SO4

This was the greatest morning. Bought a Wii U at launch and I'm finally realistically excited about the future of the system.

I believe I found a reason to purchase a Wii U, now hopefully it'll get more JRPG's since that's what the current generations have been missing (cough) PS3 (cough)...

Indeed, though there have been some excellent and good ones for 360; Lost Odyssey, Infinite Undiscovery, Star Ocean 4, Resonance Of Fate, Tales Of Vesperia...
