Pilot giant mechs in the new Wii U exclusive
Nintendo has announced that Xenoblade Chronicles X is now available.
In the year 2054, Earth has been destroyed and the remaining humans face annihilation from an intergalactic war between two alien races. Xenoblade Chronicles X follows the story of the survivors from Earth on the mysterious planet of Mira. Mira is composed of five continents, each with its own unique flora, fauna and weather. Players move seamlessly between these continents, with no loading times for the majority of travel in the game.
A fast-paced, robust battle system occurs in real time. While battling, players can freely move around to gain a tactical advantage, as well as use a wide variety of customizable special attacks and skills. As players defeat enemies, discover new locations and complete quests, they will earn both experience points and in-game currency. While in-game currency can be used to obtain equipment and items, experience points are used to level up party members and increase their skills in a variety of areas. In addition to upgrading skills, characters can equip gear, ranging from high-tech weapons to body armor.
There is also an online multiplayer experience called Blade Network. When connected using an Internet connection, players can join online squads. These squads will allow players to embark on multiplayer-specific missions, trade loot and share information with each other. Players can also recruit other players’ avatars into their team in the form of the Scout system.
Xenoblade Chronicles X is available exclusively for the Wii U.
