Monolith Soft's 2010 open-world RPG is going portable.

The game will be utilizing the freshly announced 3DS model's upgraded hardware, according to Nintendo, which means it will not be playable on current 3DS consoles.

You can watch the trailer above. Xenoblade Chronicles for the New 3DS will be out in Japan next year, with no word yet on whether it will be coming to the West.
