Xenoblade Chronicles X Direct Happens on February 6
A special stream has been announced for Xenoblade Chronicles X, through which the developer plans to reveal more about the game’s world and how well it scales up.
The stream, which will function similar to recent Nintendo Direct Broadcasts, will be held at 8:00 a.m. EST and 5:00 a.m. PST this Friday, February 6. Representatives from both Nintendo and Monolith Soft are said to take part.
At the moment, the company has only announced a Japanese stream and it’s unknown if we’ll be getting an English version. It’s likely that we’ll have English subtitles to go along with the Japanese video, much like we’ve seen happen with past Nintendo Direct Broadcasts.
We’re not told what the stream will hold for fans, but we’re sure to learn plenty more about Xenoblade Chronicles X later this week.
Aside the world itself, we’ll probably get an overview of the entire game, with glimpses at specific regions and perhaps breath in combat scenarios.
Recently it was revealed that the size of the world is going to be five times to that of the previous game and will be seamless with no reload times between entering new regions.
However, there will be loading times during event scenes. Additionally, the entire map will show up on the Wii U GamePad, where each area will be indicated by a hex symbol. Players can interact with each of them to initiate features like quick travel or check for events.
