The huge new Wii U JRPG Xenoblade Chronicles X seems like it wants about 80 hours of my life. I’ve given it 18 so far, and I’m going to give it some more.
Xenoblade Chronicles X is set for release in the West on this December. But here in Japan, the game has already been out for two months. Here’s what Japanese gamers think of the game.
The epic Wii U role-playing game Xenoblade Chronicles X that has so far failed to thrill one of our guys in Japan, where it is already out, will make it to North America just before Christmas. It’ll be out on December 4.
Xenoblade Chronicles X is a massive game—and one I am still not even close to finishing. However, with over 70 hours of gameplay under my belt, I think I am finally ready to tell you what this game is all about.
I’ve spent a lot of time in the sprawling open world of Xenoblade Chronicles X, doing quests and just exploring. And given how much time I’ve spent running, that got me to wondering just how large the main continent was.
Then I promptly broke it.
As I write this post, Xenoblade Chronicles X is up on my TV, its music blasting from my surround sound system—just as it has been for hours.
I had no idea how much I wanted an RPG to let me do this until now.

Xenoblade Chronicles X may be on a system far less graphically powerful than the PS4 or Xbox One, but that doesn’t stop it from having some of the most beautiful alien scenery I’ve seen in a game.
Xenoblade Chronicles was one of the best RPGs the Wii had to offer; and while we didn’t exactly love last month’s 3DS port of the game, we’re still excited to play the Wii U sequel. So join us as the Up All Night Stream plays Xenoblade Chronicles X.
Here’s a short Xenoblade Chronicles X clip that demonstrates how online group quests will work. People can form “Squads” and participate in special “Squad Quests” (the footage starts at the 0:45 mark in the video) to kill tougher monsters for better loot. Just like in MMOs.

Today marks the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, a smaller-sized version of the 2012 JRPG that was originally made for the Wii.
64 hours. 23 hours. 42 hours. 28 hours. Somewhere on a grassy plain trying to figure out if I should spend my days hunting down one of many pending side quests. Somewhere deep in the ocean chasing mermaids. Somewhere making preparations for my next strategic battle. These are all the places I’m willing to leave…
I know it's only February. But this year, these are going to be hard to top. Congrats, Xenoblade Chronicles X, for some of the dumbest-looking characters of 2015!
Xenoblade Chronicles X is an upcoming big Wii U game. Literally.

2014: A wonderful year full of fantastic titles.
