Rumour: Monolith Soft Are Making An Xenoblade Chronicles X Sequel For The NX

A rumour posted on TiLMENDOMiNATiON’s Twitter page suggests that Monolith Soft are in the process of making a sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles X for the NX. Tilmen suggests that it would be more story based, and will allow you to transfer your save data from its Wii U predecessor.

At the moment, this is just a rumour, but here’s to hoping it’s true. If it is, more information should come to light in the coming months surrounding this.

      I don’t see why they WOULDN’T be working on the sequel, the game is great and it’s successful.

    Yeah no. The one dev from Monolith already stated they were doing something different.

        Well judging from how well Xenoblade Chronicles X has sold worldwide I don’t think a sequel can be denied. I don’t think it’s gonna happen anytime soon when the NX arrives but certainly after their next project they’ll definitely do it. It would only make sense from a financial point of view

          Exactly. Maybe in the future, but somewhat unlikely now, since Takahashi wants to do something different:

          “I tend to get bored with things pretty easily, so I’d like to keep creating things with different approaches every time,” says Takahashi. “Along those lines, I’d definitely like my next project to look and feel pretty different from this one. The ‘Xeno’ name, by the way, really just exists to make it clear that these are Tetsuya Takahashi productions.”

          But you never know… Things changes in a heartbeat.

    1. No shit. XP Either Galaxy 3 (or an HD Super Mario Galaxy Trilogy edition) or maybe Sunshine 2 following up the hype of Splatoon which followed up that game’s concept to turn into their version of Gears of War.

  5. I think it’s going to happen anyway, but this guy is very unreliable. To the point where every single ‘rumour’ he’s created has been fake. He said F-ZERO was happening countless times, and that Diddy Kong Racing 2 was also happening. These were back in like 2013/2014.

      From Xenosaga Episode I through Xenoblade Chronicles X, MONOLITH SOFT is one of Nintendo’s best RPG developers in the world. Takahashi & Kojima (Koh) truly deserve a sequel for the Big N’s new system(s).

            ‘An’ typically goes before words that are phonetically spoken with a vowel sound, not just certain letters. So it would be ‘an’ X-ray, as it’s spoken ‘Ex-Ray’, whereas Xenoblade is phonetically ‘Zen-o-blade’ so would be ‘a’. That’s rule of thumb, but also just reading it aloud is another way of making sure!

    And I was recently thinking a remaster of Xenoblade Chronicles X on the NX would look freaking fantastic. Sequel is even much, much better. The rumour makes sense, as I feel confident we can continue seeing more Xenoblade for future Nintendo consoles, but still doesn’t mean it is true.

    It is very likely in development, the stage is the question… story is where they are starting and it all takes time… Not sure how many writers there would be (someone with the the other games can say better) but likely just a couple start formulating the story and it might be an outsourced thing in that someone who isn’t a developer starts writing an outline for that… Either way, 3-5 years probably

The only chemistry he has with ANYBODY is with Lyn, where they have a somewhat “father-daughter” (or mother-daughter) relationship

    – Sync XY and ORAS Saves.”

    So yeah. Tilmen was just having a little fun, and I love watching him for that sort of thing. I’m not the least bit surprised that N-Dubt Nation were the ones who tried to sell this as a story. Their enthusiasm was great at first, especially around 2010 when I first found them, but it really does reside in the blindest corner of the internet’s fanboy region.

    All that said, I’d love for a save transfer feature to occur with certain Nintendo games on the NX. Splatoon definitely needs to get player data over there come the time an NX entry is released. Starting from scratch would likely kill that community.
