X Marks the Spot

The next massive sci-fi role-playing game from Monolith Soft, the creators of Baten Kaitosand Xenoblade Chronicles, comes exclusively to Wii U. Aterrible intergalactic war leaves just a handful of Earth survivors trying to live in a beautiful yet hostile environment.

Players engage in battles against powerful creatures of all forms and sizes using the deep battle system that builds on the triumphs of Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii.

Features

Riding and controlling a weaponized mech, players can explore every inch of the massive open world displayed in gorgeous high-definition graphics. The world is filled with strange and imaginative creatures, from small bugs to giant dinosaurs.

As characters improve in different classes, they will learn new combat and defensive skills, or Arts. Players can customize the Arts palette as their characters learn new Arts. All Arts have a “recast” time – once cast, the player must wait out a “cooldown” period before that Art can be used again.

Players can customize everything about the main character’s appearance, including gender, shapes, height, skin color, voice and tattoos
