It looks like Wii U owners may not have to worry about a delay to 2016 after all.
Xenoblade Chronicles X, the upcoming Japanese role-playing game from developer Monolith Soft, is nearly complete.
According to executive director Tetsuya Takahashi, development on the Wii U exclusive is almost finished, despite the team having to overcome a few hurdles along the way. "The development [of Xenoblade Chronicles X] did have its twists and turns, but we were able to finish up (just a little more until it’s complete) Xenoblade Chronicles X in the sci-fi world we aimed for from the beginning in a seamless open-world with online play, and I feel that we were able to overcome several obstacles as far as game development goes," he said on Twitter.
"With the vast world that was shown when Iwata-san introduced the game in the Nintendo Direct the other day, it would bring me great pleasure to have you folks get to thoroughly explore it," Takahashi added.
Xenoblade Chronicles X is set to release in Japan this coming spring and sometime in North America and Europe before the end of 2015.
