Which artstyle do you like better? Xenoblade Chronicles or X?

Yeah because the world is magical and colorful too..


It's not magical, but it is colorful... unlike X. I don't see why you guys have such a hard time admitting that the colors are majorly desaturated in a misguided attempt to make the game look gritty and mature.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a hideously underrated game.

Even though X's colour palette is more subdued, I actually prefer X. It reminds me more of Xenogears and Xenosaga. And I freaking love that Kunihiko Tanaka is doing character designs. I love Xenoblade, but I'm hoping for a darker storyline from Takahashi this time and the more realistic style would compliment it.

Can't wait for X, looks amazing!

I don't think the final game would be like that. They just made it look like that to appeal to the "new hardcore" (i.e. hardcore wannabe) crowd. I'm sure the final product will have plenty of colourful environments like Xenoblade did.

X's graphics with Xenoblade's art style would be great.

Here's a little video I've made, taking the 1080p trailer of X and increasing the contrast & saturation...

nah, xenoblades character designer and world designer should be fired. Kunihiko Tanaka is much better and I'm glad he's back. Xenogears characters and world design was so much better than Xenoblades.

Xenoblade looks vastly better. X looks bland and colorless. When I walk outside into the real world, I see actual colors, not gray and washed-out smudges. That last thing we need is another colorless game. It's very disappointing, to say the least.

When was the last time you went outside? Because, it's pretty damn colourful out there.
