Monolith Soft’s Xenoblade Chronicles X made a welcome appearance in this month’s Nintendo Direct, and executive director Tetsuya Takahashi has shared that development is nearing completion.

He wrote, “The development [of Xenoblade Chronicles X] did have its twists and turns, but we were able to finish up (just a little more until it’s complete) Xenoblade Chronicles X in the sci-fi world we aimed for from the beginning in a seamless open-world with online play, and I feel that we were able to overcome several obstacles as far as game development goes.

“With the vast world that was shown when Iwata-san introduced the game in the Nintendo Direct the other day, it would bring me great pleasure to have you folks get to thoroughly explore it.”

Takahashi previously commented that the Wii U exclusive had helped Monolith Soft “lay the groundwork for HD game development,” after working on the game’s equally colossal predecessor on Wii – Xenoblade Chronicles.

Xenoblade Chronicles X will launch in Japan in Spring 2015, and is scheduled for a 2015 release in Europe and North America.
