The April 24 Nintendo Direct revealed some new information for the game "Xenoblade Chronicles X."
It was shown that the planet Mira will have a safe haven city called New Los Angeles to roam about, get new missions, and more. The planet Mira is also very dangerous, showing off a large variety of grass fields, deserts, and snow tundras along with lethal monsters roaming about that can flatten any under-level player that crosses its path. Planet Mira holds many alien creature races too, both deadly and friendly.
To help with traversing the land, the player has navigational balls to lead to current quests, cameras to see high in the air, and Skells- the giant mechs the player can control.
The Nintendo Treehouse showcased the fights, which controls similarly to the previous "Xenoblade Chronicles." There's going to be close range melee attacks along with mid range gun-shooting. Loot drops are also featured. The Treehouse Presentation loaded a game save later in the game to show what some of the game will entail (with some story elements skipped of course). One of the characters you can get, Tatsu, was shown and when you can get him. Tatsu is reminiscent of Riki from "Xenoblade Chronicles." Mech fighting in the skells was also shown. Some of the enemies that don't notice you become hostile when you ride around in a skell. The skells can be stored in garages, where customization can be done.
