People buy Nintendo consoles to play familiar Nintendo games: the best titles to grace the Wii U thus far have been the likes of Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World, and the new, crazy Super Smash Bros. But every so often a game outside of those established franchises comes to a Nintendo console and blows people away. In 2015, it looks like that game will be Xenoblade Chronicles X.
The sci-fi role playing game is the follow-up to Xenoblade Chronicles, a cult classic for the Wii (which itself is getting a remake for the New Nintendo 3DS XL). It takes place in a massive open-world unlike anything on Nintendo's home console; it's filled with startling landscapes and epic-sized monsters. You can also ride around in crazy mechs. Unfortunately, it's unclear just when you'll be able to venture into that world and explore — Xenoblade Chronicles X has no specific release date for North America, but is expected to launch in 2015.
