Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Monolith Soft adds new Osaki studio

Bigger studio, bigger games. More studios more games. This is a very good development and Monolith is growing as is the Xenoblade franchise. I hope one day it can rival Final Fantasy as one of those greatly anticipated RPGs.

I agree, quality wise Xenoblade surpassed them a long time ago.  I would love to see the hype to back it up.

Glad to see Monolith finally getting some recognition and expansion. They've always made good game, but everyone else that owned them or worked with them, kind of mistreated the studio. Nintendo is helping them thrive.

I can't wait to see what they're working on next! :D



Geez, Monolith started from the bottom. Nintendo had little faith when they started. A lot of their games didn't even get localized like Disaster: Day of Crisis in America. We had to beg for Xenoblade 1 to leave Japan. Now we are getting their games worldwide on the same day and are selling like crazy. Those Xenoblade American sales must have made Nintendo feel very stupid for not believing in them sooner.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Is Xenoblade 2 one of these highly praised JRPGs that have terrible writing, voice acting and tons of fan service? .

Not gonna lie, it is definitely guilty of fanservice, and while the writing and VA are not overall terrible, (I actually quite like the regional British accents, and the story as a whole) there are definitely some cringey scenes.

For me it's a game that succeeds on the strength of its highlights overpowering its many flaws.

There certainly is fanservice in the game, some character are very sexualized for no reason, others are not. For the writing, I would say its pretty good. I've seen better, but I've seen a lot worse in JRPG's. Some scenes have a great translation that flows really well, while others can be a bit cringe to say the least. Voice acting goes from really good, to a few pretty bad ones. Its basically your standard Nintendo voice acting work. But there is a lot diversity in the accents, which I really liked.

Ultimately Xenoblase 2 stands out with its great combat and a really great story that, Unlike a lot of other JRPG's, has a really nice flow to it.
