Get a crash course in Skells from this Xenoblade Chronicles X promo
With Star Fox Zero delayed for a much-needed overhaul and Zelda Wii U god-knows-where, Nintendo’s only big holiday title is Xenoblade Chronicles X. You would think they would be hyping it a lot more; it’s basically all they have left until next year and it’s a massive, sprawling sequel to one of the biggest, best RPGs of the past decade.
But enough of my complaining. Nintendo is at least releasing some informative demo videos that give an in-universe primer on the game. The first one details one of the game’s defining features: the transforming Skell mecha. This video explains the abilities, combat applications and finer details of these mechs, such as when to refuel and how to fight with each class of Skell.
The Skells are just one aspect of this incredibly vast new RPG, so keep an eye on Gaming Nexus for future updates.
