Nintendo Direct for Xenoblade Chronicles X coming April 24

Xenoblade Chronicles X, the upcoming open-world role-playing game from Monolith Soft, will be the focus of a Nintendo Direct presentation tomorrow, April 24, Nintendo announced today.

The presentation will kick off with a "video showcase" of Xenoblade Chronicles X, according to Nintendo, followed by a live gameplay demo from the Nintendo Treehouse. Nintendo noted that it will present tomorrow's Nintendo Direct in English only, which makes sense, since Xenoblade Chronicles X launches next week in Japan. The Nintendo Direct will begin tomorrow at 11 a.m. PT.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is set for release later this year in North America and Europe, exclusively on Wii U. It is a spiritual successor to Xenoblade Chronicles, which debuted on Wii in Japan in 2010 and was released on New Nintendo 3DS earlier this month as Xenoblade Chronicles 3D. For more on Xenoblade Chronicles X, check out a clip of what may be the game's divisive battle music, and watch its E3 2014 trailer below.
