So, Star Fox Zero has been delayed to sometime Q1 2016 release.
This leaves us with Xenoblade Chronicles X as the only WiiU exclusive contender thats worth the effort left for 2015.
Xenoblade Chronicles is the best RPG from last generation and i have really high hopes for Xenoblade X...However...I'm reading some very bad things about the game. The biggest complaint seems to be pretty common for open world games nowadays: A huge and beautifull yet boring and empty world with little to non existent plot. There were some more complaints but this one is the most worrysome of them all.
Like, WHAT? A boring and empty world with no good story in a Xenoblade game..? What the hell happened..? Recent games like MGS V and Mad Max share some of these issues but the former has received good press from everybody and their grandmas and the latter not so much. Of course MGS is an already popular and beloved franchise which is famous for its complex stories, stealth gameplay and overly long cutscenes rather than its open world. Mad Max had the chance to prove itself of not being another mediocre movie based game and i guess they fucked up.
If the complaints about XCX are true i dont think the reviews will be favorable, for one thing Xenoblade Chronicles is a niche game that pretty much nailed it from top to toe as an open world RPG game and fans are expecting its sequel to be better in pretty much every way especially since Zelda U and Star Fox U have been delayed, and it's unlikely that it will move WiiU sales, hopefully with some good marketing and a great dedicated Nintendo Direct it will at least sell 2 million or else...Things will look very ulgy for Nintendo.
If Xenoblade X fails to get good reputation from critics & fans alike then i think it's over for this franchise.
