https://youtu.be/l86GCaqZuxY?t=166 At 2:45 in this clip, is this Xenoblade music?
It sounds like Wild Arms music. So maybe they have the same composer.

That's Xenoblade music.

I see. Are you able to point out which track it is? https://xenoblade.fandom.com/wiki/Xenoblade_Original_Soundtrack

None of the Xenoblade composers seem to have worked on Wild Arms, but I'm curious where else I may have heard this person's work.

That is the track Guar Plain from Disc Three.

Remember when Nintendo wasn't going to release Xenoblade Chronicles in North America?
Now in 2019, Xenoblade Chronicles has a second port on the way, and 2 follow-up games that have already been released. One of those games sold over a million copies and had a significant DLC story released in 2018.

These are confusing times.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

PS4: 122 mil (was 100 million) Xbox One: 55 mil (was 50 mil) Switch: 79 million

3DS: 77 mil (was 73 million)

I played this on Dolphin a year and a half ago, so I don't think I'll be double dipping. But good for those who haven't experienced the joy of playing this game yet. It's a good one.



Very cool news, and I love the graphical upgrade. The character models were definitely the weakest part of the original, and so seeing them updated to a new style makes this a must-play.

Curious if there will be any added story-content, and if so, how much. Maybe...

Spoiler!
it'll be revealed why Malos and Shulk both wield Monados...maybe Alvis is an Aegis? Or another reason that I could never see coming. Maybe we'll see Zanza listening to Klaus' speech to Rex, sort of a reversal of the Xeno 2 ending.

Of course, just playing the exact same game with updated visuals is already appealing enough, so I don't mind. Hype!

Spoiler!
That would be a really awesome edition to the story if they pulled that off. If they did that, in addition to the easter egg at the end of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, then I won't help but wonder if it's intentional.
Perhaps related to whatever ideas Monolith may have for a Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

Spoiler!
Alvis is the third core of the Trinity Processor aboard the station that initiated the experiment that created Xenoblade 1's universe. He disappeared into this new universe along with half of Klaus (Zanza) while the other two remained in the real-world-future universe of Xenoblade 2. The three cores are Ontos (Alvis), Logos, (Malos) and Pneuma. (Mythra)

That would be cool, here's hoping @_@

I remember thinking that was the intention as well (unless it was openly confirmed)....just my only reservation would be...

Spoiler!

Why is Alvis also the AI for the space station? I mean the likely reason is that the Aegis idea didn't exist when XC1 one was made and they still wanted to draw a connection between Zanza, Meyneth, Alvis and their real-world counterparts...but I can't help but wonder if they'll be distinct and Ontos might something featured in XC3, whenever that happens.

Of course I prefer the simpler explanation to explain why Malos wields a Monado and why Mythra can see the future, but I'm open to whatever crazier idea they might have.

Pretty sure that can just be put down to them not having thought up XB2 yet at the time they wrote XB1 haha.
