Hello yet again, fellow Nintendo enthusiasts! There were a couple of interesting announcements this week; one of which I’m extremely excited for, while the other is questionable. There was new information galore this week on both Xenoblade Chronicles X and Splatoon, both of which are Wii U exclusives releasing this year.


I have been very excited for Xenoblade Chronicles X arriving on the Wii U since it was first announced. Personally, I think both RPGs and JRPGs are a perfect fit for the Wii U. This is mainly due to the GamePad usage they could implement into titles, map usage to free up HUD space, quick-change items, writing notes… and these are just a few aspects that the Wii U could enhance in this type of genre. Anyway, to get back to the point, XCX looks to be an impressive game that has potential to be a wonderful addition to any Wii U owner’s library.

Late on Friday night, there was a Japanese live stream revolving around the game. There was much to be shown and discussed regarding the general gameplay in the game, but what really caught my attention was the online functionality.
