Xenoblade Chronicles X for the Wii U came as quite a surprise for owners of the system as it was fairly different from what gamers were used to in Xenoblade Chronicles for the Wii. It wasn’t the smash hit it could have been due to the small user base of the console. Tetsuya Takahashi admits this and says that a Nintendo Switch port is something he would like to think about once development for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is finished.
Lastly, I thought Xenoblade Chronicles X was a wonderful game, and also wonderfully different from Xenoblade Chronicles. But it feels like Mario Kart 8, in that it was constrained by the Wii U’s limited audience. Any chance we might see it come to the Switch?
Thank you for that feedback. I think we’re currently completely focused on creating Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and even after I go back to Japan, I have a mountain of tasks that I need to overcome. But I would love to think about it, after the development for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is completed.
