Final Fantasy XV designer shares praise for Xenoblade Chronicles X
Monolith Soft’s Xenoblade Chronicles X has received unexpected praise from Final Fantasy XV lead game designer Wan Hazmer, after he saw the Wii U exclusive’s most recent trailer in last week’s Nintendo Direct.
While explaining that two games have entirely different approaches in direction, he shared that he still saw it as “intense competition” and will buy a Wii U so that he can take it for a spin.
“Touché to the people at Monolith Soft; that is one awesome trailer!,” Hazmer wrote on his blog.
“The exploration aspect of this game looks incredible. I’m hoping that we can actually traverse to all visible landscape in realtime. Would like to get near that sandworm and see what happens!
He continued, “Some of you can already tell that there are different approaches in both our direction, especially when you compare this and FFXV trailers, but admittedly that’s some intense competition right there! And we all love healthy competition don’t we? Coz [sic] in the end, the fans win!
“There’s no clause in my contract that states that I can’t love a game made by another company, so I’m gonna be all out and say that I just can’t freaking wait to play this game! I loved the world in Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii, and I’ll be getting a Wii U just for this game.”
