Xenoblade Chronicles X Map Will Be 5 Times Bigger Than That Of Xenoblade Chronicles

News has already started to come out of the latest edition of EDGE magazine which features Shigeru Miyamoto. Shinya Takahashi revealed in the magazine that the map for Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U will be roughly five times bigger than than the one found in Xenoblade Chronicles on the original Wii.

“Vehicles are called Dolls. They are 5 Times larger than a person. So to get the same feel as Xenoblade Chronicles, the map would need to be 5 times bigger. The game world in X is e in fact even bigger than that.”

Operation Platinum Is Aiming To Get Bayonetta 2 To Sell One Million Copies On Wii U

A fan made movement is currently in the works and it’s called Operation Platinum. The social movement is calling for Nintendo fans to purchase Bayonetta 2 on Wii U and help the game shift over one million copies. Of course some people will see this as Nintendo’s job, but that hasn’t stopped fans being vocal about it. The movement is a direct response to third-party publishers that say Nintendo fans don’t purchase their games and the console isn’t worth supporting.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.

Is A Taiko No Tatsujin Wii U Sequel In Development?

Taiko no Tatsujin, the rhythm based games created by Namco, may be getting a sequel on the Wii U. The news was discovered by NeoGAF member HeroOfLegend who spotted the site, http://wiiu2.taiko-ch.net, which is currently giving an error message of “test page”. Interestingly the same thing happened with the previous game before becoming official. The series has done fairly well in Japan, but has yet to come to the west.

GameStop Says Don’t Bet Against Nintendo

GameStop president Tony Bartel still believes that the Wii U could eventually become a hit with gamers. A combination of great first party games and better marketing could help the situation.  We heard earlier today that Ubisoft also thinks the Wii U could become a success with the help of Just Dance 2015 and Smash Bros Wii U.

“We’ve been very consistent every time we’re asked about the Wii U,” he said. “Really what they needed was two things: they needed strong first-party titles, which we think that they are getting; and they also needed to do a better job of explaining exactly what the connected tablet–as we like to call it–how you actually use that. I think they are going to do a great job on both of those.”

Thanks, Christopher and Valve Admiral GLaDOS
