Never got around to playing Wii U’s Xenoblade X Chronicles? Monolith Soft president Tetsuya Takahashi may have just the idea for you: Wii U’s 2015 RPG on Nintendo Switch! While not set in stone, the idea was brought up in a 4Gamer interview translated by Siliconera, which features the following exchange:
“4Gamer: Just as Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii was made available on the New 3DS, are there any chances we’ll see Xenoblade Chronicles X on other hardware?
Tetsuya Takahashi, Monolith Soft President: “Personally speaking, there are times I feel like playing Xenoblade Chronicles X and think about how nice it would be to play it on the Nintendo Switch. Of course that will depend on demand and such, but I will think about it while discussing future plans with Nintendo.”
Could it happen? It’s possible: Nintendo has already ported other Wii U games (Mario Kart 8 and Pokken Tournament) to their new console, and may wish to breathe new life into their first open-world RPG. Of course, Mr. Takahashi has a good point regarding demand: it’s hardly the most popular Wii U port request for Switch (that would be Super Smash Bros. for Wii U), but you gotta admit it would be cool to play on the go, eh?
