When Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was announced, it seemed to put paid to the idea that the Xenoblade series would be Monolith Soft’s take on a Final Fantasy-like franchise - each game similar in style and approach, but fundamentally different in story and character. That ‘2’ implied that we’d be be returning to the classic Wii RPG’s strange setting, the backs of the godlike Titans, the Bionis and the Mechonis.
So I put it to Monolith Soft studio head Tetsuya Takahashi: if this is being pitched as a sequel to the first Xenoblade, what will we find inside? “It's a completely different world, with completely new characters. It's a different game.”
