Monolith Soft's science fiction role-playing game Xenoblade Chronicles X — the successor to 2010's Xenoblade Chronicles — is coming to Wii U in 2015, Nintendo announced today in its pre-E3 Digital Event.

In Xenoblade Chronicles X, small groups of survivors of an intergalactic war remain on Earth. These individuals are left to fend for themselves in a beautiful yet hostile environment.

Xenoblade Chronicles was originally published for the Wii in Japan, with a North American version hitting in April 2012. The game, available in limited quantities in North America, usually sells for $89.99 and above.

In January 2013, Nintendo announced Xenoblade Chronicles' successor, currently known as X. X, led by Monolith Soft studio head Tetsuya Takahashi, will be open-world and will feature an upgraded version of Chronicles' combat system.
