Monolith Soft: Xenoblade Chronicles X Switch Port Would be “Difficult”

The executive director for the Xenoblade series says a Xenoblade Chronicles X port for Nintendo Switch is uncertain and would be “difficult.”

During an interview with US Gamer, Monolith Soft head Tetsuya Takahashi was questioned on the future of Xenoblade series. As far as the popular spin-off title Xenoblade Chronicles X goes, Takahashi quoted one factor keeping the game off of Switch:

“Money. It’s a massive game. Re-creating it would be really difficult.”

Takahashi has helmed the entirety of the Chronicles series and says he would love to play Chronicles X on the go.

Nintendo Switch has proven that it can holds its own in terms of console exclusives. To the surprise of practically no one, the portable console has also served as a Wii U port machine for many nearly forgotten titles.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was a huge success for Nintendo, so while another port from the series makes sense, it may be a while away.

Recently, the Monolith team released the Torna – The Golden Country DLC for Chronicles 2, but also released some interesting job postings.

Monolith is currently looking for a talented developer to join the same team that developed Chronicles 1, 2, and X for a new RPG project.

At least the team looks to be working on something in the vein of the Xenoblade series; fingers crossed for some sort of sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles X.
