After they've already spent precious time and resources remastering Xenoblade 1, I'd rather they just focus on actual new games from here on out.
No need to port X.
I am of the opinion that spending time on porting games can actually hurt new games (usually by disincentivizing the funding of new projects, I.E. MK9) but I don't think that's really true or relevant for Monolith in particular. They've been working on a new IP for forever, and I think we heard rumors of Xenoblade 3 starting production like a year or so ago (?). So I don't really think a remaster, not a definitive edition mind you, would hurt their production pipeline much. Although if I recall correctly, DE's creation was apparently done by their 2nd big team, given all the changes and work put into it, which is a little odd, but I could be wrong on that. I really just want a straight port of X though.
Also I almost had a Switch scare today, thought my console died for a minute
Zelda fans are the worst
