Yep, we still don't have an official name nor any kind of confirmation as to whether this is a Xenoblade sequel or not, but we did get some... walking?! Just kidding, once you get past the walking it's a pretty sweet trailer, and it is definitely one of our most anticipated games here at Negative World!
I'll be very interested to hear what kind of story and characters it will have. Plus with how impressive the world was in Xenoblade, I'm very interested to see what they'll do with X with less restrictions.
Yeah, we don't know anything about the story. I've been kind of taking it for granted that the story will be as full as the story for Xenoblade was. If we hear that it's just a game where you run around randomly in mechs, I'll have to rethink my excitement. For all they say about it being open-world, though, I'm still thinking it'll have lots of plot.
Any idea if this is going to have co-op play? I know ppl were saying this might end up like a Xenoblade meets Monster Hunter game. I'd like to see 1 person on the game pad, 1 person on the hd screen both playing "single player" experiences in a multiplayer environment.
@DeputyVanHalen I never got anywhere in Xenogears. I can't remember exactly why as it was long ago. It just wasn't my cup of tea. While I'm sure it would cause some to rejoice, if it's very Xenogears, my copy would probably be given away, traded, or very dusty.
@vids Nothing official about that yet, but the first trailer had both chat log and "player" instead of character names on screen, so I'd say it's a possibility.
Personally I'd be fine with some drop-in-drop-out multiplayer in battles, sort of like what Secret of Mana has, but too heavy multiplayer focus risk ruining the drama, I feel, so I actually hope they're keeping things limited.
