        People have said that about a bunch of other JP studios and they have all bent the knee to censorship and ESG shit. Even when XBC3 came out people were complaining that the designs were really tame compared to the previous games.

        I don't expect it to be any better. Pokemon is a separate branch from Nintendo technically and they still had to trannify Pokemon GO and their latest DEI slop main series game. Also made the MC of the new pokemon anime black.

        The level of anime tiddies in XC3 is just as high if not higher than xenogears and saga. So if they are pozzed now, they were always pozzed

          breasts weren't the problem, it was the designs of the girls with the breasts(or otherwise). Everything just completely tame compared to the likes of Mythra or Kos-mos etc.

            Or maybe Saitom actually asked for direction instead of doing his own thing, resulting in designs far more in lines with a Xeno-'s brand of sci fantasy?

                Saitom claimed the opposite, and said he basically did XB2's designs by feeling, which is why he asked for directions when working on 3. Hell, that would explain why Zeke looks nothing like his father, and how Saitom's gormotti doesn't looks like the npcs at all.
                Not the first time it happened, remember that Xenoblade 1's cast were basically designed after the armor designs were done.

          Demonstratably false

          Xenogears had full frontal nudity. Both male and female.
          Xenosaga had Shion just wearing a shirt as an optional costume.

          Xenoblade 3's lack of fanservice is a straightforward problem: Lack of fanservice costumes. All they had to do was have a shop in the City (where people are actually free and not all part of the forever war) where you could buy costumes (fanservice or otherwise). Those could exist without questioning the integrity of the story.

            You get costumes for every hero you unlock. There are plenty of cloths in game. And even 2 didn't have a cloths shop. We haven't had armor pieces since X

              A new jacket isn't a "costume" even if it is considered such in-game. This is incredibly apparent when Eunie wears Ethel's jacket but the cleavage is covered up by Eunie's base costume being underneath.

              A shop in the City with Fanservice costumes. If Xenoblade 3 had that, most of the criticisms would be gone. Or hell, more bathing scenes would have been nice instead of just the one at the beginning.

        Manpower is not and never has been an issue for PXZ, the games were budget titles for the 3DS, they were always cheap as hell. Heck, most of the budget probably goes into licensing. The problem is that literally no one in the industry actually cares about the series besides Monolith Soft

        That action game new IP does not exist, holy shit I am tired of secondaries pushing this rumor. Xenoblade as a franchise is considered an action game in Japan. It's also considered a fantasy game. The medieval sword girl they posted was for a recruitment drive for Xenoblade 2.

          To add to your point, I doubt Takahashi would have said this if Monolith had been working on a medieval fantasy ip since 2017.

          Xenogears can easily be a sequel remake reboot as well, and may have to be to connect it to Saga.
          With the Wave Existence being forced into the Zohar in Xenogears original, it is now aware of humanity after the events of Xenogears original and intercedes for the first time to stop the collapse of the universe by performing the first loop, and the Xenosaga Zohar is created by the Wave Existence which causes differences between the original and the remake.
          This resolves the canon conflict between Xenogears and Xenosaga, at least.

        Xenogears and Saga 1 to 3
        Takahashi has very poor self control when it comes to xeno games.

        He either go full overdrive or micro-meter steps when unchecked

        The only Xeno games where Takahashi isn't on a leash is Xenosaga 3 and Xenoblade 2 (don't know enough about XB3's development cycle to tell).

        The reason why Xenogears/Saga 1 is so fricking good was because he had his wife Soraya Saga to whip him into shape. Takahashi's a grandiose idea guy, his wife's responsible for all of the great character interactions and personalities and minor/detailed worldbuilding.
        Even though Takahashi was unleashed for Xenosaga 3 since his wife formally didn't work on it, Xenosaga 3 was mainly great because he still had notes from when his wife was involved. When Takahashi's in control we get silly shit like G-Elements or Erde Kaiser

        Xenoblade 1 had Nintendo overseeing him and Takahashi deliberately let Takeda write 90% of the plot, and the goal was for Monolith Soft to create a "beloved classic" at the cost of a unique, deep story (Takahashi's admitted this).

        According to staff at Monolith Soft, early drafts for Xenoblade X's plot apparently the most unhinged and unleashed Takahashi's ever been and he wrote the most story he's ever written for a video game, but that was entirely scrapped early into development to prioritize world design and gameplay over story.

        Xenoblade 2 was legitimately the most control Takahashi's ever had. He didn't have his wife to tell him "your shit sucks, stop doing that". Nintendo actually backed down from their proofreading and let him do whatever the frick he wants within reason. His other writers were all "yes men" who just went along with what he told them to with no resistance, and he's called that shit "everything he's ever wanted to write in a Xeno game but couldn't"

        I'm not sure about Xenoblade 3 but I heard Monolith Soft got hit hard by COVID and it effected the very rushed last third of the story, and Misuda's comment about "not being able to tell the kinds of stories we used to tell" makes it seem like Nintendo or someone was breathing down Takahashi's neck this time.

            He's been a close friend of Takahashi for over 25 years and he's talked about how he's received early drafts for Takahashi's stories over the years and commented on it for made suggestions.

            >Takahashi's admitted this
            He said himself that he wanted the project to be a sort of reset for the team and let new hires cut their teeth on something. The only real Nintendo oversight was the producer forcing Takahashi and Monolith Soft to make a single complete zone that was feature complete and using that work to help estimate how long the rest of the project would take
            >He didn't have his wife to tell him "your shit sucks, stop doing that"
            In the same way the OG Star Wars trilogy wasn't just Lucas' input but also his editor, his wife's and his team's, Soraya Saga's input was actually very useful when stuff like Xenogears was in development

            >The only real Nintendo oversight was the producer forcing Takahashi and Monolith Soft to make a single complete zone that was feature complete and using that work to help estimate how long the rest of the project would take
            Takahashi's legitimately said that Nintendo gave Xenoblade 1 an editor/manager from outside of Monolith Soft who'd come in and say that "this plot element is too confusing" and at one point made Takahashi change something (we don't know exactly what it was) because it was vaguely connected to Xenogears/Xenosaga and that new players wouldn't understand it.

              Yeah but that's not the same as having someone else write it. It's just about having someone sit there and give your work a second opinion on how it's being told.
              In publishing, editors aren't really that interested in changing details as much as optimizing the way a given work is presented. It's a little like how you need to show your work on homework in grade school: rather than having the writer stay in their own head, an editor's job is to get them to basically try to see things from the audience's point of view. That way the artist is made to consider things like pacing or conveyance of information that they might otherwise of have either taken for granted or simply forgotten about
              Producer's sort of occupy both the role of a traditional project manager and an editor on whether the game mechanics and story are being conveyed and used properly

              We know exactly what it was in light of XC2. The Zohar. It's always the memeRectangle. That's the items actual fans would recognize. There's no doubts about this. It was always planned that way. And people won't believe me when I thought it was involved back in 2010/2011, but nobody will believe me and everyone called me a moron grasping at delusions after the burial of Saga. Well, turns out he just waited until XC2 to reintroduce it properly as he had free reigns to do whatever he wanted by that time.

            Nintendo also forced Takahashi to change an early Xenoblade 1 draft where Sharla dies, Reyn's full of a drive for revenge much like Shulk is for Fiora, and Reyn ends up betraying the group once Shulk spares Egil since Reyn wants pure revenge, and the game ends with Shulk and Reyn killing eachother piloting the Bionis and Mechonis respectfully, since Nintendo deemed it too depressing.

          That makes no sense, the game was content complete in February 2023 (possibly earlier) and scheduled for a September release. In what world were they rushed? They only bothered submitting to the ESRB when their game was basically done. There was no reason to submit so ahead of their release date unless they knew they were content complete and what they wanted to make, which means they were likely the opposite of rushed. They finished early

                It happens every time. Heck, the fortune teller in AoC is technically from the artbook of BotW, so a Xenoblade Warriors is actually the best shot we have at seeing Mythra's kid.

                Yes, but they're Warriors characters. If you go to Shez in FEH, it doesn't count them as Houses characters, otherwise they'd be filed up with Byleth above the Black Eagle section. Instead, Shez is below the villains from Houses, because that's where the game splits always happen and it say he's from Warriors.

                That's not what that word means.
                Pedantry is when you try and pick apart as much as possible. Shrugging and saying "it's all Warriors" is the opposite of pedantry. The person who would go "uh actually they're all different because of release dates and franchises and nyaa nyaa" is the pedantic one. And that's you, if you don't see it.
                Mentioning a Warriors spinoff in a thread about a future game in a Nintendo series is completely reasonable. Nintendo has done it FOUR times already.

                You're pretending that years of Xenowarriors speculation DIDN'T HAPPEN simply because you don't like it. It's dogmatic as frick.

                It’s one or two of you morons who like eating that slop, who clap whenever you recognize gets referenced. The same braindead degenerates who think XC3 is the peak story of the series, because it constantly points to shit you might recognize. Stop pretending it’s this massive movement of people who want a fricking Musou.

                Age of Calamity outsold the best-selling Xenoblade game with double the sales. The other musous all match Xenoblade 3 in sales.
                >Stop pretending it’s this massive movement of people who want a fricking Musou.
                It unironically has less of a niche market than Xenoblade itself does. Xenoblade is VERY niche, being a slow-paced story driven rpg with both a serious tone and anime setting. Warriors games are action games that are crossovers with liked franchises. One just does better.
                To pretend that people didn't speculate a Xenoblade Warriors, despite multiple archive links proving otherwise, is pure moronation.
                You won't have a good reply to this, it won't be worth anyone's time.

                Because Zelda and FE are both more popular than Xenoblade.

                Would FE have become as big as it is if it hadn't pandered to waifugays? Normies barely knew about Xenoblade until 2 came out. Before that, the IP was just as obscure as The Last Story.

Most people didn’t play X and Xenoblade 1 was still pretty niche and lacking in characters since at the time we were used to roster’s having like 13-17 characters in it. Xenoblade 2 was when the Musou wish list started because it was way more popular and because of the Blades

          XC2 is a mostly standalone entry, you don't need to know anything about XC1 besides for a little easter egg at the very end of the game and an "oh shit" moment after chapter 7. It also has the advantage of being an early Switch game, so people were more okay with buying games outside their comfort zone just to have something to play. It also had a slight boost later when Pyra and Mythra got announced for Smash, a lot of people played it out of curiosity

        Why do these “creative savants” in the business of making RPGs think that their entire playerbase wants multiple 80 hour stories of required reading that need multiple flowcharts and supplementary materials to hold together? Why can’t “The End” just be “The End” sometimes? Nomura’s still the fricking worst of it, but frick me if XC3 didn’t feel like it came directly from his playbook.

      People have said that about a bunch of other JP studios and they have all bent the knee to censorship and ESG shit. Even when XBC3 came out people were complaining that the designs were really tame compared to the previous games.

      I don't expect it to be any better. Pokemon is a separate branch from Nintendo technically and they still had to trannify Pokemon GO and their latest DEI slop main series game. Also made the MC of the new pokemon anime black.

        The Arena thing is true, but it was put in the back burner when ArcSys accepted the development of the Grandblue fighting game.
        I never heard anything about a Party game, but if she saw Tactica's designs she could have interpreted it wrongly (same reason that FEgays expected FE4 Remake when a gay saw Sigurd's Engage model+Paralogue).

          Don't think so, FE4 remake was leaked at the same time as the return of classic lords in engage.

            No, when Engage was first leaked no one knew about the returning lords at all. There was the word emblem, but without context no one knew what it meant.
            Remember that the 'leak' was a reddit post that made other false claims, like that Koei Tecmo had Gust work on it, which wasn't true.
            It's a clear cut case of leaked screenshots being real but the text that came with it being someone's guesses.

              She was the first one to talk about FE17. Then the second leaker posted the pics on reddit and claimed that everything she said was true, and that there was a remake of FE4 being worked on.

      As much as I like 2 and 3, I think XB1 didn't really need a sequel.
      With XBX, at least they tried evolving the gameplay with the seamless open world, but even that game is too similar to XB1.

      What I hope for is for Monolith to do something completely different for their next game, kinda how Xenoblade 1 started as its own thing. They could keep the 'Xeno' prefix for brand recognition.

      With the exception of X, I assume Xenoblade games sold really well for their budget.
      At the end of the day, these are anime story-driven RPGs, so they will never do BOTW, Pokemon or GTA numbers.

        X sold pretty good for a mature sci-fi wannabe MMO on the fricking Wii U. I think the fact that XCX, 2 and 3 all got greenlit back to back, each with its own DLC campaign (that was packaged in the Western release of X since localization made the game come out a year late) is a good indicator that each release met/surpassed sales expectations, otherwise Xenoblade would be already dead instead of having had 4 games (6 if you count DLC stories) in about a decade

      Having both would be great, of course, but they do more than fine, they're not AAAbudgetslops that need millions and millions of copies to break even. looking at you, SE, have fun dying a second time.
      Their current strategy works wonders. I wouldn't mind a new IP from Monolith, but it won't be a Takahashi game. He wants to make Xeno until he retires, and he honestly don't have much time left to close his grand story. We won't see a new IP from him, but maybe from another director, which would be appreciated.

      Recruiting them certainly was better than having to do the dogshit gacha system in 2, and this is coming from someone who rolled KOS-MOS as my second rare blade.

    I wouldn't mind a complete Saga remake, with the 2 or 3 little changes needed to make it perfectly fit with Xenoblade, but I honestly can't see it happening. That means putting Xenoblade as a story on hold for like 3 games (as much will be needed, ideally more but that won't happen). This translates as putting the story on hold for like 8 years. By that time, Takahashi will be close to retirement, and we won't know past XC3 yet. I just don't know, this isn't realistic.
    And yes, Takahashi is telling an overarching grand story. Expect the next installment to continue post-Earth reunification/re-apparition in the universe.

    Before FR, I always thought they would just make a XCX-DE for the Switch 2 (while mocking the morons that ever thought it would come to Switch, it never made sense after XC1DE was announced alongside Future Connected). I mean, a new console architecture, an engine to update, new recruits. A XCX-DE is the perfect recipee to have a winning combo to launch a game soon, update the engine and have your new staff earning XP while not fricking anything up as you make them work on an existing game. Add-in a bonus chapter like Future Connected was to tease XCX-2. Better yet, tease XCX-2 during the XCX-DE trailer at the live presentation of the console. hype through the roof. A perfectly sound plan. And it brings back X from the grave and puts it under the projectors again with the new console so they can continue in the X branch.

    But after Future Redeemed, I'm not so sure anymore. I just don't know what the madman Takahashi is planning anymore.

        It won't work. I honestly think it needs a full blown remake. I'm not saying the changes have to be drastic, but there's a lot of things here and there to do, even down to the battle system to appeal to a modern audience. I'm not saying it needs to be real time or whatever, I wouldn't want it any other way than its regular turned battle system. But at least for XS1 it needs to be reworked a bit. I liked XSII as it's legitimately proto-Xenoblade's battle system but only a select few seems to notice it, and while it's fun for boss battles, it has legitimate flaws for normal encounters. Xenosaga III's is very snappy and would work still for a modern audience.
        It also comes down to game design, Xenosaga I would just not work, it barely did back then. The Wolglinde phase at the beginning will lose you pretty much all the current era players. not to mention the back-and-forth in Xenosaga II, like, who the frick thought it was a good idea to redo Sakura's section in winter.
        No, just doing an HD port with a few touch ups won't be sufficient. It will meet the exact same fate it did back then. Takahashi knows this. You can even read it between the lines in many interviews.

            I won't be able to remember exactly what I thought back then, but I remember upon replaying XSII that a simple change in the boost system would've made the battle system works wonders, be it for normal encounters and boss battles.
            While i loved XSIII's battle system, once I finish XSII and continue to XSIII, I always feel a bit bummed over the fact they threw it all out to make a new battle system that, while being snapier, is really dumbed down.I wouldn't call it "strategy", but XSII's was just than just your regular turn based battle system, you had to think quite a bit, and quite a bit forward at times. I loved that.
            Alas, they threw it all away instead of making the (very) necessary changes to make it work better. 'still glad I found some of its philosophy in Xenoblade games.
