It seems the game is on the most wanted games list for Nintendo systems. I know it isn't a comparison to the PS4 games but if we consider the USUM numbers this is pretty high. I think that comgnet preorder number going around is a bit off, specially as it is the number only for the limited edition.
Here's the famitsu numbers:
>Pokémon Ultra Sun Moon (3DS) - 501
>Xenoblade 2 (Switch) - 447
>Persona Q2 (3DS) - 332
>Project Octopath Traveler (Switch) - 178
>Dragon Quest XI: Sugisarishi Toki o Motomete (Switch) - 172
>Fire Emblem New Work (Switch) - 156
>Shin Megami Tensei V (Switch) - 134
>Mario Party 100: Mini Game Collection (3DS) - below 80
>Yokai Watch Busters 2 (3DS) - below 80

I must be the only one who thinks this new xenoblade is worse than the first chronicles... from what I've seen the game is slower paced and you can't attack if you move during combat , they brought back fall damage which hinders more creative fast exploration and removed mechs or any kind of Mount for that matter unless u want to play a girl who rides the lion.. THEY TOOK OUT CHARACTER CUSTOMIZATION LOOT!!!! Oh sure we get to farm for humanoid weapons weeeee but god forbid we get a new piece of armor to make our character stand out.. I put 400+ hours into xenoblade chronicles x and that game was a masterpiece to me. Story wasn't as good as first chronicles but all the features it had made it an rpg loot paradise. Got a ps4 instead monster hunter world gonna wipe this game

>>396315735
They took out certain things and replaced them with others.

Every character's outfit is already custom designed so your character stands out from the beginning.

The combat does look a bit slower than the other ones but it also has more systems in total too.

The game world isn't an open world like X, so it's implied that exploration won't be important to that degree, and there's a fast travel system.

The idea is that story-wise, it's tighter and the content that is there is more meaningful to that story and world.

They replaced custom outfits with a huge array of Rare Blades with their own stories and perosnalities

History fag here, I found out where the localised name of brighid is:

http://www.goddesstemple.co.uk/flame-of-avalon/

"The Flame of Avalon sparked to life on the final day of the Glastonbury Goddess Conference in 2004, which was dedicated to the Goddess Brighid of the Triple Flame."

I like this one because it's pretty much the western equivalent to Kagu-tsuchi the flame god of japanese mythology

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kagu-tsuchi

"Kagu-tsuchi or Kagutsuchi (カグツチ), referred to as Hinokagatsuchi (火之迦具土) in the Kojiki, and Kagutsuchi (軻遇突智) or Homusubi (火産霊) in the Nihon-Shoki, is the kami of fire in Japanese mythology."

Thats the difference between something like Senran Kagura in this.

While this game is also full of fanservice it will also have a beautiful, an actual story and an OST by one of the most critically and loved composer in the industry Mitsuda thats what make these game much better than kusoge garbage like Neptunia and friends.

There is nothing wrong with anime tiddies and loli as long as the rest of the stuff aren't being ignored.

That's the proper way of doing things. NoA and NoE gets to tell Nintendo what really might create cultural misunderstandings in their regions and Nintendo can make clear what they really want in their games.

Also none of that is indicative of being a chuuni, just a JRPG character. Everything we've seen of her personality also suggests she's not very chuuni-ish at all, and what's even the point of giving two characters the same personality? Zeke is already the resident chuuni, we don't need another one who might be in the party.

So a thought occurred to me: they're probably front loading all the waifu blades in the Twitter because it's a form of marketing obviously
I mean it IS the Japanese twitter, they're trying to get the unusually dedicated Otaku fan base to buy it
Conversely they're showing no new blades on the American Twitter so I guess there's not so many that Blades are considered the Waifu feature of this game by NoA or by the Dev team themselves that they'd feel a need to push it as that to Americans

You are heavily underestimating how incestuous the creative scene is in Japan. They're all very much into drawing the same thing as everyone else does, and that just so happens to be very cute girls because the majority of manga/anime artists/fans are men and want to draw cute girls.

I guarantee like 80% of the total of blades will be cute girls.

I mean, they'd have to clear it by Takahashi first so that they're not just drawing soft core hentai

But they are the same size.
>>
>>396326404
Because Japanese names are always retardedly literal and have been for thousands of years. They're artless in a way European names simply aren't.
>>
>>396326404
Because Japanese names are literally just Japanese words that mean things

It's different for English because most names we have are derived from ancestor languages. The closest comparison are black parents naming their kids Destiny or Precious or Bailbond

The names we have are adjusted versions of words in other languages: Sophia is derived from the Latin word for wisdom

I'm not even kidding when I say that I haven't been this hyped for a game since Brawl, nearly 10 years ago now. I absolutely adored both XC and XCX and can't wait to go for another wild Takahashi ride.

>>396327185
I think so. After the direct I was still pretty hesitant, though I was already sold enough to preorder the CE. After the direct I was still nervous it might not be what I was hoping for, short and not a very interesting story, etc. But seeing gameplay today has made me really look forward to it's release.

Yeah, I was afraid that they'd dumb everything down, but that definitely isn't the case just by this hour of gameplay alone. One of my favorite things about the Xenoblade series is just the sheer amount of shit there is to do. There's so many numbers and different builds and so many different sidequests. I know it's not for everyone but for me I can easily lose 200 hours making my way through a game like this.

In the IGN video, they go into detail about "cancelling" attacks in combat. Cancelling is a misleading term imo to use but by timing your weapon arts at the end of 3 chain auto attack it increases your chain gauge by 1 full bar. This mechanic is ripe for exploring deeper.

Pyra's auto is pretty slow but some of the other weapons have some pretty fast auto attacks which should make that system even more engaging

I'd prefer to see them use an off anime style instead of the largely generic one they are using, but I guess it goes with the artsts they use for their games. and I think the main thing is that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is more the best implementation of the art style, the Xen X artists work looks good in 2d.

They were Nintendo's workforce for Breath of the Wild, and even consultants since Nintendo is smart and know they're masters of world design.

They probably told Monolith to help them with BOTW in exchange for a blank check. Definitely explains all the guest artists and voice actors.

How did they convince Nintendo to make a lewd game like this?

It's truly a fucking enigma

Nintendo isn't against lewd games. NoA is.

Nintendo. They went full retard back in the day and let Square slip free from their grasp. Monolith is a new opportunity they don't wanna go full retard on again.

When Nintendo was funding Bayonetta 2 NoJ told them to make the Nintendo outfits lewder and more revealing then they original were.

the new nintendo head honcho, for ARMS one of the advertisement showed Twintelle ass, Did I mention she has a huge fucking ass

>>396331128
That's not how it works though, Nintendo own Monolith Soft almost entirely, it's considered a subsidiary, I think maybe they use that work as sort of credits, why should it matter if this project lost money if that company is making you money overall. At least I wish that was the case, wouldn't mind seeing Platinum handle grunt work for Nintendo on more successful projects if Nintendo would turn around and let them make whatever the fuck they want within a reasonable budget, I'd love to see Platinum become a tight Nintendo partner like Hal and Int Sys, and I'm somewhat hopeful Grezzo are looking to do something like that as well.

Very low. Maybe a retailer might be crazy but don't expect it
>>
>>396331129
NoJ is down with the lewd though. NoA is the problem.

>>396330702
Yeah, but they were only mentioned.

>NoJ
That isn't a thing, it's just NCL

Their new top guys Shinya Takahashi and Yoshiaki Koizumi are pushing hard to change Nintendo's brand image so it wouldn't exclude different types of games from releasing on their platform.

>>396331353
None.

Will this game sell more than X and Xenoblade combined?

I thought that but I haven't been able to find anything that says that they are, they appear to be like Hal, self owned but tightly knit.

A big spoiler.
Do not spread the image.

Have you seen the ass focus on Zelda in BotW, Peach in a bikini in Odyssey, Twintelle in Arms and the upcoming clothing damage update in Fire Emblem Warriors? Nintendo doesn't care anymore.

>>396331370
Monolith was owned previous by Bameco tho.

>Nintendo own Monolith Soft almost entirely
You can just say entirely. They own 96%. The other 4% is split between the heads of Monolith like Takahashi, but seeing as they're all Nintendo employees...
