A follow-up to Xenoblade Chronicles is in development on Wii U at Monolith Soft, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced today during a Nintendo Direct presentation.

The development team is led by studio head Tetsuya Takahashi, who also served as game director on Xenoblade Chronicles. Character design is being done by Kunihiko Tanaka, who performed the same duties for Xenogears and Xenosaga Episode 1. Hiroyuki Sawano, a composer for Japanese film, TV and anime, is writing the score.

Nice. The X design reminds me of Xenogears logo.

Xenoblade looked fantastic, especially considering the hardware it was on.
Can't wait to see more of what the WiiU will make of it.

I'm not sure if they can Nintendo owns Monolith Soft now,but I'm pretty sure Bandai Namco still owns the Xenosaga IP.

The ending for Xenosaga 3 did leave the series open for more games in the series though; would be cool if it happened.

I'd take more Xenosaga just for the sake of more JRPGs, but Xenosaga doesn't come close to Xenoblade for me. This Wii U successor is just about my most anticipated game now, it looks amazing.
