Xenoblade Chronicles X, the upcoming Japanese role-playing video game developed by Monolith Soft and published by Nintendo exclusively for WiiU is slated to hit the shelves 2015 in Japan, North America, Europe and Australia. The gaming world for the RPG is reportedly humongous.
One of the latest installments of the Japanese Xeno video game series, this open world RPG puts emphasis on exploration where travelling could be made possible by walking or riding along humanoid robots that are five times larger than the human characters. These "Dolls" or mechs can fly and traverse into waters. They also have the ability to transform into various forms like motorcycles or tanks.
Monolith Soft's president Tetsuya Takashi pointed out that the game map will be five times larger than those featured in 2010's Xenoblade Chronicles. He further explained that increasing the map size is necessary to put in relative proportion to the aforementioned gigantc "Dolls" that players will be riding across the game world. more >>

It has been previously announced during the PlayStation 4 Press Conference that the most-awaited open world racing video game by Evolution Studios, DriveClub, will be released in "early 2014." But those who are actually expecting for it to hit the shelves around those dates were left wondering why it never came.
Turns out, the firm encountered a large-scale technical issue that caused them to hold off the unveiling.
"Last year we were hoping to get it done, but there was a huge technical issue. So the team had to go back and re-engineer some parts of the game," Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida said during his talk at GamesCom. "That's the reason it took so long. It's almost a whole year, because the team went back to the drawing board in some of the key aspects of the game." more >>
A new Mortal Kombat title is set to be released sometime in 2015 by NetherRealm Studios. The studio is also responsible for the release of the Mortal Kombat reboot back in 2011 and Injustice: Gods Among Us in 2013.
During the Electronic Entertainment Expo earlier this year, the company announced the title, a tenth in the Mortal Kombat franchise. The title is called Mortal Kombat X and the studio insisted that the "X" is to be pronounced as the letter, not the Roman numeral equivalent.
The game takes place some 25 years after the last Mortal Kombat game, the 2011 reboot. Unlike in previous titles, most of the characters aren't making a comeback. Other than Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Kano and Raiden, Mortal Kombat X will have a roster of new and unfamiliar characters. more >>
