Previously known as just Monolith Soft’s X, the upcoming Wii U JRPG title will now be known as Xenoblade Chronicles X. Monolith Soft are claiming that the game will serve as a spiritual successor to the Wii game of the same name.
Xenoblade Chronicles received sort of a full media blowout at this E3 where Nintendo released a new trailer, shared a ton of information regarding the game and even showed off a 30 minute gameplay demo. Check out the first story trailer below:

The game takes place on an Alien planet after humans escape Earth in two huge Arc Ships. Two Alien factions have chosen Earth as their battlegrounds forcing humans to leave the planet. During their escape one of the Arc Ships is attacked and crash lands on the aforementioned Alien planet.
Xenoblade Chronicles X’s protagonist will be user created and will allow players to choose details like their gender, shapes, height, skin, color, voice, tattoos, etc.
