85

would give it a 90+ if the graphics looked better and the protagonists wasn't a set of preteens engaged in warfare.

Because Persona certainly dont have teenager protagonists and are engaged in battle, and got a 85.Certainly fitting your avatar with this commentary.

80.

It will start off high then drop low when backlash falls upon it. I am guessing it will end up in the mid 80s to uppers 70s range, mainly because a lot of people seem to hate the anime vibe despite EVERY game Monolith Soft has done besides the Japan only Wii release Disaster: Day of Crisis having a strong if not outright blatant Anime/manga vibe.

If "anime vibes" doesn't bother reviewers with Persona games, then why would "anime vibes" ruin it for Xenoblade?

Yeah, I'd be shocked if more than a few reviewers at most dock anything because of the "anime vibe." Would be like if critics had trashed The Wind Waker because of the art style. As long as it does it well, and the game is looking very pleasing from the latest footage.

well on one game you have weaponized preteens killing living creatures. the other, teens vanishing supernatural beings that exist in a phantom world.

edit: Dropping my prediction score to 70 just to spite you. :)

But those supernatural beings have feelings too.Dont you feel bad when you try to negotiate with them, and just end up deciding to kill them?!?

And that’s why her design is unrealistic imo

edit: no idea of her age but other than that she seems very young.

Also young protagonists are not a bad thing... sometimes young people have to cope with interesting things too.



Bet with flashfire926: I think switch will win November NPD, and he thinks xbox one will win (if ps4 is victorious, it's a draw). Loser has to state that they lost in the signature for some time.

I think this could end up anywhere in the 85-93 range. I'll go with 89 but hope it gets into the low 90s - I have a feeling it's going to suffer some unfair comparisons to Breath of the Wild, and will receive some criticism simply because it is (unashamedly) a complex Japanese RPG. I can also see some complaints around the British voice-acting and character models at a few outlets.

That being said, the positivity around Switch plus the slightly lower reception (versus XC) for XCX and the fact this is Switch's first major JRPG might all work in XC2's favour and see it get into the low 90s. I'm really looking forward to it, anyway, but it'd be good to see an ambitious Japanese RPG turn out well enough that it gets a really positive reception.



Good predictions all around guys, and you gave pretty fair reasons as to why it would score this or that. I added the story trailer that just got released on Youtube to the OP.
