Monolith Software is still surprised that its Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, which was designed for the Nintendo Wii, transitioned to handheld devices. It will be the first 3DS game requiring Nintendo's New 3DS to play it - and will be released on April 10.




Gamers have the chance to play the RPG exploring the story behind the Monado blade, while fighting the Mechon army. Monolith Software wanted to blend real-time combat with RPG strategy, and gamers can look at animated models of both allies and enemies.


"Now we can play Xenoblade Chronicles on the New Nintendo 3DS XL, and... now, this may sound a little egotistical, but I thought, 'This is really going to raise the bar for RPGs on portable devices," said Tetsuya Takahashi, director of Monolith Software, in a statement during the Iwata Asks.
