One of the most surprising things about last week’s Nintendo Direct broadcast is the fact that many of the games we saw highlighted are due to be released in just a few short months. For example, Xenoblade Chronicles X, which received a stunning new trailer during the broadcast, will arrive in Japan at the end of April. Fans in other regions might not have too much longer to wait either, however! The game’s producer, Shingo Kawabata, announced today via Twitter that localization is already underway!

[Kawabata] This is a sudden introduction, but nice to meet you. My name is Kawabata and I work as Xenoblade X’s producer. From now on, Monolith staff other than Takahashi will be using this account to send out Tweets to you all, with me taking the lead.

Counting, it’s been about 5 years since Xenoblade’s release meaning you’ve all been waiting for a long time, but, speaking honestly, it feels like a long time even for those of us working here. On top of that, we’re also well underway with localization work, too.

However, I believe we have created something that you will feel was well worth the wait, so I hope you can remain patient for the game’s release a little while longer.

As a franchise, Xenoblade Chronicles has come a long way in a very short period of time. A few years ago, fans were petitioning Nintendo just to get a North American release for the original Wii game. Now a spiritual sequel, a 3DS port of the original title and an Amiibo of Shulk are all on the way in 2015. Things have come a long way since the days of Operation Rainfall, to say the least!

Are you looking forward to Xenoblade Chronicles X? As always, let us know in the comments below!
