Monolith Soft's debut HD RPG arrives next year.

Nintendo has released the E3 trailer for Monolith Soft’s still-to-be-titled Wii U action RPG.

Launching next year, the goal set by Monolith Soft was to create a large-scale open-world RPG that players can explore seamlessly. To do this, they used their know-how from developing Xenoblade Chronicles.

Watch the trailer below.

    • Raian Targino

      GOD. *O*

  • KingNigma

    It’s like Xenoblade with gundams. I love it.

    • Kobracon

      The Xeno series has always had mechs. Xenoblade was the exception actually

      • KingNigma

        Yeah I was referring specifically to Chronicles but this looks really good.

  • bleach630

    Am sooooooo getting a WIIU when this game comes out ,even if its the only game ill be playing on that system

  • InsaneChronos

    It’s like Monster Hunter with mechs. I’m disappointed.

    • Raiyu

      And this is a problem, WHY?

      • InsaneChronos

        I don’t want another Monster Hunter clone. I want an epic story from creators of Xenosaga.

        • Claude

          Good thing it’s Xenoblade with mechs, then.

          • Zuhri69

            It really does looked like Xenoblade with mechs. Let’s hope they can deliver it.

    • MrRobbyM

      IT’s actually Xenoblade with mechs.

      • KnifeAndFork

        more like Xenoblade meets Xenogears meets Monster Hunter

  • new_tradition

    Hngh…that looks awesome *_*

  • Adol Christin

    One of my fav games from e3 :)

  • Aldridge517

    Well done, Nintendo.

  • dzeidzei

    The landscapes look beautiful.

  • Zuhri69

    It looks like a sequel to Xenoblade. But, I may be wrong. Regardless, cool game.

    • MogCakes

      That’s the feeling I get. I miss the days of Xenosaga.

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    Glad Nintendo’s giving Monolith Soft the attention they deserve!

  • LordKaiser

    Next Gen is PS4+WiiU

    Such a great trailer. I really like the song.

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    Oooooohhhh! Is that Hiyoruki Sawano I hear?

    • futuristic_imagination

      yes it is!
      I can’t wait to listen to the ost for this game whenever it comes out!

      • Sae-Won Yoon

        I see your name reminded me of SFP.

        offtopic but a damn shame they broke up so soon T.T

    • Zuhri69

      Yes my friend. Finally, a game worthy of Hiroyuki Sawano.

  • Unknown

    Please have an engaging story like Xenoblade Chronicles, the player1, player2, stuff worries me and makes me think its a mulitplayer focused game.

  • 2+2=5

    Imo this looks more promising than ffxv(and kh3 that almost looked like a ps2 game), maybe because ffxiii looked really spectacular but was the worst jrpg i have ever played.
    And i have ps3, psp and vita, no nintendo consoles…

    • KnifeAndFork

      nah they’re about the same. Sounds like you know nothing about FF XV. Do NOT use FF XIII as a base for it. They are nothing alike.

      • 2+2=5

        I know that they are different, but i just have no faith in square enix, add that i have never had hype for this game and that most of the too long awaited games were disappointing… You can understand why i’m not convinced.

  • Auragar

    Gonna be flipping awesome. lol 2014 looks great.

  • MrKappa

    I will be buying a Wii U for this game. I don’t care if I never use the thing again after that.

  • Warboss Aohd

    You Dig, Giant Robots! I Dig, Giant Robots! We Dig, Giant Robots! Chicks! Dig! Giant Robots! Nice!

  • bloodiOS

    Nice! The trailer certainly did a better job attracting my attention than Bayonetta 2 did (the new designs make me want to vomit.) Mostly thank to the music, though. At first, I actually wasn’t impressed by the trailer while watching it mute on my phone… (I was imagining that it would have some sort of Monster Hunter BGM playing in the background, but really, the actual music blew me away.) Certainly impressive to see a lot of foliage though.

  • Bangarang

    Man I really wasn’t planning on getting a WiiU, but after Xenoblade for Wii, this changes everything!

  • Elvick

    Looks great.
