Xenoblade Chronicles X is the spiritual successor to Xenoblade Chronicles, a massive hit game that was released on the Wii in 2012. In fact, it was so successful and popular, that the main character Shulk was added to the roster in Super Smash Brothers 4.
It has been one of the most critically acclaimed titles so far on the Wii. Xenoblade Chronicles is a massive open world, and the game is very focused on exploration. The other areas of focus include questing and collecting.
The world you live in was created from nothing but an ocean. It remained an endless ocean until a fight took place between two Titans: Bionis and Mechonis. The giants fought each other until only their corpses remained.
After some time, beings arose from the corpses. Biological beings arose from Bionis’ corpse, and mechanical beings arose from Mechonis’ corpse. The Homs, from Bionis, are almost identical to humans.
They are locked in a war for survival against the Machina. Your story begins when Shulk’s home colony is attacked by the Machina. When your colony is attacked, you obtain the sword known as the Monado.
Not only is it the only weapon with the capability to fight the Machina, but it also allows you to get a glimpse into the future. When Shulk first picks it up in battle, he exhibits master control over it.
Xenoblade X is very similar to Xenoblade, with only a few exceptions. It still retains a major emphasis on exploration, with a massive open world. You will now be in control of a giant mech called a Skell, which can change into different vehicles and is said to play a role in aerial battles.
The Skell will play a massive role in Xenoblade X, because you no longer have to traverse the massive land on foot. You can choose instead to drive your way across the large plains and maybe even fly from point A to B eventually.
In each form the Skell appears to be armed with at least two firearms. Another new feature involves online capabilities. You can traverse the wild world with friends if you so choose.
If you need to exchange some items or take down a boss together, the possibility is always there. Even if you’re not online, you can take a friend’s avatar and put it in your single player game.
