Like all the other "xeno" games, this basically has no relation to the first Xenoblade Chonicles, or Xenoblade Chronicles X, or anything.
So far it's pretty decent, though the Cat Girl's voice actor has an overbearing welsh accent that causes me great anger.
This time around the characters are done in more of an anime style as to the semi realistic depictions of the last two games. And in doing so, they give us many fanservice type moments.
One of the main characters, Pyra, for example, has breasts that defy all known logic. Poppi, a fun character robot girl, seems to have been designed as some bizarre inter-species sex robot. All in good fun though!
Anyone else playing this?
Isn't Elisium one of the places in the first game?
In name only. No relation.
I'm about 20 hours into the game currently. I'm loving the story and characters, I think they have lots of personality! :) The battle system is nice and the world design is great too. The map doesn't work so well though, there's too many buttons needed to access it in my opinion. But overall I'm quite happy with the game so far!
It's alright. I like it for what it is but I always feel like its missing something.
It was enjoyable, but it felt somewhat short. Storywise, Xenoblade Chronicles was better. Chronicles X had the potential for a better story, but unfortunately they left so many strings untied at the end, it gets knocked down a peg.
Combat in Chronicles 2 is very good, though. Rex's voice however, causes me pain.
I'd have to agree you on Rex's voice wullahblack, every time i hear him yell i cringe. All the other voices are pretty good tho imo, Pyra's especially.
