EXPLORE AN ALIEN PLANET AND SAVE HUMANITY FROM EXTINCTION IN XENOBLADE CHRONICLES X
Pilot Giant Mechs and Battle Exotic Beasts in Wii U Game
REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 3, 2015 – Fans of RPGs, grand adventures and all things sci-fi are in for an early holiday treat when the Xenoblade Chronicles X game launches exclusively for the Wii U console starting on Dec. 4. The enormous game finds players exploring the planet Mira on a mission to rebuild humanity. The game is absolutely mammoth, featuring a gorgeous, seamless open world that lets players visit any location they see. Using a deep, highly customizable battle system, players can choose from a variety of special attacks and skills to take down enemies of all shapes and sizes – some as tall as skyscrapers! By earning a special license in the game, players can even pilot giant armed mechs to fly around the planet and engage with the toughest of enemies.
“Xenoblade Chronicles X appeals to any gamer who loves epic stories combined with beautiful visuals,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “The game is a must-play for any Nintendo fan.”
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. Players step into the role of a main character that can be customized with features like gender, facial components, clothes and hair. As players journey through the game, they will meet a large cast of engaging characters, some that will even join their party.
Mira itself is a vast world, composed of five massive 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. Being able to travel to any location seen in the distance adds to the majesty and scope of the game. As the center of human activity on Mira, New Los Angeles (NLA) is a large city composed of four distinct districts. Here, players can buy weapons, develop equipment or visit cafés. The many citizens of NLA will even ask players to complete numerous quests, rewarding success with money, items and experience points.
Xenoblade Chronicles X features a fast-paced, robust battle system that 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. These attacks can even be chained together to deal massive damage. At one point in the game, players will earn a license to pilot huge armed mechs. These mechs – or “Skells,” as they are referred to in the game – allow the player to fly quickly around the planet or battle powerful enemies. Like the main character, these Skells can also be customized, letting the player personalize things like weapon loadout and color.
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. These skills will vary, depending on the “Class” of each character. For example, the Shield Trooper Class specializes in defense, while the Samurai Gunner Class excels in dealing damage and using longswords. In addition to upgrading skills, characters can equip gear, ranging from high-tech weapons to body armor. Each piece of gear will look different depending on whichever character is wearing it.
For players who want to take on the game’s challenges with friends, Xenoblade Chronicles X offers 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.
The game launches for Wii U in stores starting on Dec. 4 at a suggested retail price of $44.990 Chilean Pesos. Also launching starting on Dec. 4 is the Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Edition, which includes the game, an art book, a USB drive pre-loaded with a selection of 10 music tracks from the game and a limited-edition art card, all in a specially designed package at a suggested retail price of $72.990 Chilean Pesos.

Resumen en Español
La versión TL;DR de lo anterior es que XC-X te lleva a conquistar el vasto mundo de Mira, el cuál puedes explorar bajo total libertad. Debe ser uno de los juegos con mundo abierto más grandes del mercado (se calcula que 5 veces el de Witcher 3). Tu creas a tu personaje desde 0, y lo puedes personalizar al estilo de combate que prefieras gracias al sistema de Clases. El juego está a 45 lucas, y la edición especial a 73. Si tienen una Wii U, este juego no está para perdérselo.
