Wii U trailer: Monolith Soft reveals its new RPG

Unnamed game shows strong ties to Xenobalde

Tokyo studio Monolith Soft has lifted the lid on its mystery debut Wii U title.

The game was revealed by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata at a Nintendo Direct press conference on Wednesday. Iwata-san said the project is being overseen by Tetsuya Takahashi, the former Square Enix developer now heading up Monolith Soft.

No name was given for the project, though the trailer concluded with a large X displayed across the screen - likely a reference to the Xenosaga and Xenobalde heritage.
