Monolith Soft Working On New Wii U RPG: Xenoblade Chronicles 2?

Monolith Soft rather stole the show in today's Nintendo Direct broadcast, debuting footage of a new RPG designed exclusively for the Wii U. Ornate monsters, enormous levels and transforming vehicles/mecha suggests that the veteran studio will be working on another expansive open-world to explore.

Though the name of the title wasn't specifically mentioned, it's likely to be a sequel or follow-up to Xenoblade Chronicles. Not only does the GUI and combat system look broadly identical, but Shulk, the hero from the original game, also makes an appearance. Plus, the footage ends by displaying a ruddy great "X." We've embedded the video above so you can judge for yourself.

Since I described Xenoblade Chronicles as "the best JRPG in years" when it released at the tail end of 2011, we couldn't be more excited about this. We'll bring you more details as we get them.

Wow! When I buy a Wii U in about five years' time, this, Rayman and Lego City Undercover are going to be so cheap. Must. Resist. For. Now.
