Where Will The Legend of Zelda Go From Here?

Where Will The Legend of Zelda Go From Here?

It’s no secret that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was a huge success. It received high praise from players and critics alike, and many fans consider it to be one of the best games released so far in 2017.

Is Xenoblade Chronicles 2 a Direct Sequel?

Is Xenoblade Chronicles 2 a Direct Sequel?

When Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was first announced for the Nintendo Switch, many Xenoblade fans were surprised. We expected a sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles X, not to the original Xenoblade Chronicles.

Its setting is clearly different, with a world made up of multiple colossal Titans rather than the two giants in the original Xenoblade Chronicles, but the ending of Xenoblade Chronicles opens up possibilities that could allow them to still be connected. However, during a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 live s... »
