I am so pumped for this game. I havent felt like this since they revelaed that Monster Hunter 3 was coming to Wii U in Noth America. Xenoblade Chronicles was the best Wii game of 2012 and one of my all time favorite games. The game looks kind of similar with the special attacks ate the bottom but the guns are new.

oh man, this is exactly what i needed, being a passionate gamer, who buys an games on all platforms, so far since launch my wii u has been gathering dust, an i have hated doing that, but in all honesty so far no wii u game has peaked my interest, not even pikmin 3, which even though i enjoyed the last 2 pikmin games, it is by no way a system seller, nintendo should have made sure to launch with a 3d mario galaxies, or mario U-niverse, LOL, to show what the system could do, an also that nintendo could create great hd games, done get me wrong, new super mario brothers u is a great game, but FOR ME, it is no way worth £50, when you compare other games on wii u or other platforms, which i could buy for that money, an to hear a playable version of a 3d mario will be at e.3, has made my year, an even better if its launched before Christmas that would be EPIC! an since they have not announced what retro is working on, i sure hope it will be a metroid prime 4 on wii u. i can think of no better game or developer to show everybody how to implement the game pad, touch screen an to create some of the most immersion using hd visuals in first person ever, just like they did with metorid prime 1an 2, an 3 to a lesser extent, but it was still sexy! what they achieved on wii, in the metroid prime trilogy, when played at 480p at 60fps, with the motion controls, i swear its like a religious experience!! an that still with limited power, i can think of no better developer to let the true power of the wii u be unleashed, through hd sexy art design, an great gameplay! roll on e.3! damn where's the tardis when you need it, i wish i could go forward in time, an play an see all those games!

make no mistake that is a more glossy looking monster hunter set in the future with more rpg style elements.
you cant get away with making bows,guns,hammers, and swords and massive monsters to slay and say its not a clone

looks good though and i hope it blossoms further.

Could this be a xenoblade sequel? That shadowy face at the end looks quite shulky but maybe I'm reading too much into it. Either way I want that game!

I rad that the game is gonna be called X. Not sure if this is accurate or not but by looking at the gameplay it might be part of the same series as xenoblade.

Really? It looks like a modern JRPG to me...those things all sound like pretty standard JRPG elements as far as I can see...

I wasn't being serious. Let's just say The Last of Us and MH3U have been pushed down a bit on my "most anticipated" list.

Have you even played Monster Hunter and Xenoblade?

My bad. Didn't understand that you were being sarcastic and I agree Monster Hunter and Xenoblade are not that alike besides that they are both amazing.

As long as it improves on Xenoblade, then it's worth a look.

Have to say this looks amazing. Monolith has to be one of my favourite developers of recent times, and this just screams pure awesome. The image of Shulk at the end would suggest a direct sequel to xenoblade, but that would be unusual since to my knowledge none of the other games in the xeno series have had direct sequels. Hopefully there'll be some more info at E3.
