    It will be on the same engine for XC2, XC1 have no actual art style as it's done only by programmers.
    As much as I like XC1 story and characters I still think the design look weird, it's an anime but not actually anime, I prefer XC2 design at least it doesnt look weird.

    I really enjoyed the 3ds ver. but when the [new] Switch game came out, I just could not get with that new battle system at all. Far too awkward for me, like trying to write with your non-dominant hand.

    EDIT Dear G-d they better make it scale-able text though, otherwise, I'd pass.

    When they port XCX as well, what would be the right order to play them (never played a XC yet)?
    The order they were released?
    1. XC 1
    2. XC X
    3. XC 2

    Seems that they’re using the models from XC2. Now if only Bandai Namco would step it up and remaster the Xenosaga.. I would literally have a nerdgasm for that

    XCX is not related to XC1 or XC2 as far as I know, I tried to play XCX 3 times and every time I I force myself to play for few hours then give up, XC1 and XC2 was far much better, in XCX the soundtrack is just awful and your character is mute, story is not interesting at all, the only good thing maybe was the battle system, so I passed on XCX.
    You can play XC1 or 2 in any order as the story in not really related, there is only a link at the end which I dont want to spoil it for you.
    I say wait for XC1 first because the battle system in XC2 is so complicated for newcomers.

    It's a Wii game and it's considered one of the best (if not the best) RPG of all time.

    Apparently it doesn't matter. I never played the others until XC2. They don't really interfere with each other.

    eh, give them some time first. They gotta milk the first entry of the Xenoblade series for a little longer.
    But in all it's fairness they've got a point. Xenoblade is the holy grail of JRPGs almost flawless, save for some technical bugs and outdated Wii graphics.
    Here's hoping they crank up the graphics/shadows/lightning etc. Would be nice to see a proper remake of this. But this is going to be a port like the many other switch games.
    makes sense the switch is port-able after all :tpi:.

    it ALMOST looks as good as the emulated game on PC with texture packs ... but WHY THE FUCK REMASTER THIS AND NOT X?!

    This remake includes a new area (Bionis' shoulder) so at least the plot is more fleshed out

    X could be ported but not remastered really, Switch is barely above Wii U when it comes down to it.

    Guess I'll be buying it again too. I got it on 3DS, but have only played a couple hours, which is longer than I made it on Wii. After putting over 80 hours into the sequel before giving up, this may be the version to finally hook me in.

    Story wise, you can play X at any time, but play 1 first then 2. Release wise you're correct
