I'm totally down for this!

The Kyoto team has clearly proven themselves to be very talented, capable, and trustworthy. And to have not one, but TWO, Monolith Soft studios working on games in addition to Xenoblade, and if they prove to be just as good as Xenoblade in terms of quality, or maybe even better, then we could be in for something truly special.

Monolith Soft has the potential to be Nintendo's Naughty Dog (All due respect to Retro Studios). They could produce some huge, blockbuster, system selling IPs that could rank amongst Nintendo's Elite. Not quite on the level of Mario and Pokemon (in fact, they'll probably be nowhere near Mario and Pokemon,) but definitely around the levels of Zelda, Animal Crossing, and Splatoon, as well as above their B Tier franchises like Fire Emblem, Donkey Kong, and Kirby.

I'm just thinking about a Xenoblade Chronicles 3, with the budget, resources, and marketing on the level of a mainline Final Fantasy. The fact that Xenoblade 2 managed to surpass both 1 & X in just one month shows that there is definitely room for growth and even bigger success. The potential is definitely there. It's on Nintendo to tap into it and provide the money, resources, and most of all,  creative freedom, necessary to allow Monolith Soft to reach it.
