X vs Xenogears

Character standing in front of giant mecha in hanger in two different games.
Somehow supposed to show huge similarity?

Truthfully, I do think there will be similarities, just like in Xenosaga. Cool that Monolith is the new Squaresoft for Nintendo like back in the SNES days.

I said it was 'interesting' not a huge similarity.

Huh. Not very interesting to me, but to each their own! Was expecting more when looking at the two screen shots.

I'll show myself out...

Guys, guys. Think about it.

Pokemon X

Xerneas
Xenogears

Yveltal
Weltall

Coincidence? I THINK SO!

Yveltal is even red and glowy.

AND, the W in "Weltall" is supposed to be pronounced like a V, because it's German (for "universe", hence the name "Omega Universitas" in Xenosaga).

Actually, I think that part isn't entirely a coincidence, as Yveltal could very easily be named for the German word for universe.

Comparisson between X and Xenogears

Do you think there is going to be any connection at all between the two?

If X is linked to Xenogears, story wise, in anyway, I would be the happiest nerd ever!

It's likely that there will be many references, but no actual connection. Sort of like how the ending of Xenoblade reveals that Zanza was originally a scientist who destroyed/recreated the world in an experiment that mirrors Wilhelm's plan in Xenosaga.

They can't be related because Monolith doesn't own the rights to the Xenogears IP anymore.
