In this week’s set of Thursday updates to the official Xenoblade Chronicles X website, Monolith Soft gave us a closer look at one of the game’s continents. This week, it’s a look at the lava-filled landmass referred to by fans as the Land of Black Steel (note that this is an unofficial translation, and thus subject to change). You can check out all the new images in the gallery below.

Xenoblade Chronicles X releases for Wii U on April 29 in Japan. Other regions have a general release window of 2015. Seeing as how Japan is getting this game in less than a week, it’s possible that this will be the final Thursday that Monolith Soft adds a large batch of updates to the official website. It’s been a pleasure bringing this news to our readers. But as Japan receives this game, the marketing focus moves West. Be sure to watch the English-language Xenoblade Chronicles X Direct that airs tomorrow (April 24) along with the Nintendo Treehouse presentation that follows, and hope that the Western release date isn’t far away!

Our Verdict

Alex Zangari
Hi, I'm Alex. I'm a lifelong Nintendo fan and PC gamer. A few of my all-time favourite video games include The Legend of Zeldas: Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask, Mass Effect 2, Rayman 2, and most importantly, Xenoblade. If I ever catch you making a "really feeling it" joke in our comments, you can bet your ass I'll hide it, you casual scum. Feel free to send me a private message if you have something you'd like to discuss... or if you just want to say hi!
