Xenoblade is Monolith Soft's new Wii RPG, and a new video for the game has been released showing off the world.
first thing you notice is how huge the world is. This is different from
Monolith Soft's other RPGs, Xenogears and Xenosaga, which are more
linear. The world seems highly detailed, and although this video is low
quality you can tell there's been lots of work done in the game's
Other things of note is that there are a variety of
monsters, both small and large. Are we seeing insipirations from
Monster Hunter here? Also, there seem to not be any "invisible walls"
that are evident in other RPGs and that you can jumo off cliffs and
such like Zelda instead of being constrained on a path.
Xenoblade is looking to be an excellent game and is due for release in
Japan on June 10. No Western release date has been given yet.

have height as well. You'll be able to make your character jump as you
