Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Switch port of Xenoblade Chronicles X currently NOT in development

Nintendo doesn't see a commercial advantage in porting XCX so they'll remain that way and Nintendo are the type of company today that couldn't give a shit about preservation too ...

Not like we would want to preserve bad games such as Christmas Carol on the NES but yeah, sure.

Shame, never played that either. Is it recommended to play xenoblade on the Wii and the wiiu before playing xbc2? I might just play the one on switch and not bother if it doesn't matter too much.

Basically reiterating what the others have said, but I'll add that there is a link between XC1 (Wii) and XC2. It's not revealed until the last 1-2 hours of the game though, so the games themselves are essentially self-contained, just that there's a scene towards the end that will have more impact as a fan if you've played the Wii game. If you don't care much, you can't go wrong with starting with XC2 though.

I never finished XCX (Wii U), but my understanding from the ~60 hours I played and from what I've read is that the story has no definitive connection to the other two, so it can treated as a separate story entirely that can be played in any order.

Well thanks everyone, I guess I can skip X which is handy as I don't have my WiiU anymore, but I might play the Wii one before XC2. Shame I have an old 3ds.
