    Hopefully it will get a proper announcement at E3 but I`m pretty positive about it since it was listed in Launch Schedule...

    It IS being localized. The English name is Monado: Beginning of the World.

    [​IMG] I like the box art >,,<

    I like the graphics aswell, hmmm watching the trailer my first thoughts was Monster Hunter [​IMG] although.....it would be nice if Monster Hunters turned into something more like this [​IMG] (except the game mechanics of course)

    I'm looking forward to this game! Hope it gets a NTSC/PAL release date on the E3.

    Are you certain? Because that name was just the original name it had when it was first announced. I'm pretty sure if it does come out here then it'll stay as Xenoblade.

    I like how the game's cover has a neat sword on the front, and the main character carries it around

    and there's humongous creatures everywhere



    ...but the trailers just show you and your team running and no battle system - something you'd think something that looks like an RPG/adventure game would actually have. :/

    There is a video of the battle system on the official website (and probably youtube too). It's weird. Something like you move the character around and they automatically attack, and you select which abilities/spells to use. It might be good, or it might be crap. [​IMG] I'm worried it'll be a bit crap.

    The name change thing was from some weird Nintendo interview stating that the name in Japan was changed to honour the creators of their past Xeno games, but that the English name will stay as Monado. Of course this could change in the future.

    Yeah, Monado was its original name but they changed it to Xenoblade to honor Tetsuya (Creator of Xenogears and Xenosaga). So there isn't a release date for it or any announcement of them localizing it.

    Strange that this doesn't seem to have shown up anywhere but Chinese sites.

    This looks pretty awesome. Makes me wish Monster Hunter Tri was like this. Feels like it would have been better as a MMORPG. I definately wanna play this. Hopefully it wont be too hard to play it without knowing Japanese.

    Doesnt seem to be on Usenet yet.

    Edit: This video is what sold me on this game. I really hope this game gets localized. I dont see why it wouldnt, because all the rest of the Xeno games came here.

    it looks to me like a fusion of tales of symphonia (my sister has it) and monster hunter tri.

    ps. hmm I already guessed that the massive mech you see in the first trailer is some sort of final boss/stage.
