Xenoblade Chronicles X will have a deeper and more intricate sci-fi storyline in comparison to the franchise’s past games – according to the game’s director Tetsuya Takahashi. Earlier today, the Monolith Soft director revealed via Twitter that Xenoblade’s script writer Yuichiro Takeda has taken the helm as main scriptwriter once again for the latest instalment on the Wii U. But it was through Takahashi’s direction that gave Takeda the go-ahead to write a much heavier sci-fi script rather than the classical fantasy storyline of Xenoblade.
Takahashi also mentioned to fans of the franchise that composer Hiroyuki Sawano – most known for his work on Attack on Titan and other anime shows such as Sengoku Basara II – will be in control of the game’s sound, while Xenoblade artist Kunihiko Tanaka returns to his lead role in character design. The Xenoblade Chronicles X director said the following on Twitter:
“After the basic fantasy story for [Xenoblade], we’re having [Takeda] write a deep and distinctive sci-fi story this time around.
“I’ve known Mr. Tanaka for a long time, but this time I asked for his cooperation to bring out the Xeno-ness in the art.”
