Game Informer sat down with Monolith Soft’s Tetsuya Takahashi and Monster Games to discuss all things Xenoblade. Get the full details below.
Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of people claim that Xenoblade Chronicles X is a second party game, it should come to PC, and all sorts of nonsense. Sooo…. I’m here to set the record straight. Nintendo owns nearly 100% of Monolith Soft.
Back in 2007, Nintendo acquired 80% of Monolith Soft from Bandai Namco, later, Bandai Namco sold their remaining 16% of stock to Nintendo, making Monolith Soft a “first party developer”. I saw this thread over on the VGChartz forums, in addition to “some” of my own users on YouTube saying that Monolith is a “second party” studio for Nintendo. Just so we’re all clear. Xenoblade Chronicles X and Monolith Soft are as first party as Metroid Prime with Retro Studios. Hirohide Sugiura and Tetsuya Takahashi might own the remaining stock for the company, as they are the original founders of Monolith Soft. However, it’s completely possible Nintendo acquired the remaining 4%.
Final Fantasy 15 developer Wan Hazmer, took some time out of his busy schedule to praise the Monolith Soft team for their work on Xenoblade Chronicles X. On his personal blog, Hazmer gushed over the Xenoblade’s huge open world then stated that he will buy a Wii U for this game alone.
Soraya Saga, the wife of one of the producers of Xenoblade Chronicles X has retweeted the announcement of the Nintendo Direct set for Wednesday at 5PM ET. When Saga retweets Nintendo Direct announcements, that is usually a sign we’ll get more footage on her husband’s game at the same direct. Let’s hope Nintendo can pull through with some new information or awesome footage of Xenoblade Chronicles X tomorrow! In the meantime, you can rewatch my analysis videos from 2013 and 2014 to refresh on the little details!
