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 >>

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 >>
