Xenoblade looks like it’s going to be a huge Wii title to look forward to.
The game is an rpg, and it’s world takes place on the top of two giant gods, Kyoshin and Kishin, that stopped moving during a ancient battle.
Present day, some machines have started attacking different villages and our heroes needs to stop them with the help of Monado, a mysterious weapon which can be controlled only by specific users.
Xenoblade is being developed by Monolith Soft, who is really famous for the genre, working previosly on respectable series like Baten Kaitos and Xenosaga. The director behind Xenoblade is Tetsuya Takahashi (Xenogears, Xenosaga), and the composers are Yoko Shimomura (Kingdom Hearts, Parasite Eve) and Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger/Cross, Xenogears). Mitsuda will be doing the theme song for Xenoblade, while Shimomura will be the main composer together with Monolith’s crew. There’s a really respectable team behind this project.
Xenoblade is expected for June 10 in Japan, while those looking for an english version will probably need to wait until E3 2010, in July.
