Bullshit rumors or idiots who didn't see the statement that Xenoblade was renamed from Monado IN HONOR of Tetsuya Takahashi and his work on the prior Xeno games. The connection is at best akin to what FF games show within the games themselves, similar themes and styles reused but no concrete connection.

I know about that rumor and this rumor. I am not going to say either are BS.

Like I said there isnt a story connection or anything. They just happen to take place in the same universe and timeline. Which basically amounts to nothing

No, they don't take place in the same universe or timeline. Confirmed by the scenario writers.

No, they aren't connected, the game has been out for quite awhile in English and Japanese so people will know. Now drop it.

That's the very definition of connected, and it's not true. DROP. IT.

Are you going to apologize to me now?

http://www.rpgamer.com/news/Q2-2010/040110a.html

"In a recent interview with Dengeki Japan, Monolith Soft revealed that the upcoming Wii RPG Xenoblade (quietly announced last E3 as Monado) will have direct ties to Xenogears and Xenosaga after all."

Tetsuya has revealed that these "gods" are actually gears from prior games. One is Brigandier, the gear of Bart Fatima from Xenogears and the other is E.S. Dinah from Xenosaga. Since these prior games were published by another developer, the names will be changed to avoid any potential conflict. Tetsuya claims that Xenoblade is indirectly the spiritual Episode IV in the Xeno timeline.


Its actually more connected than I remember

Wait, that's all? Read the date of the news story. If that doesn't make it clear, google the day and month.

Not every article on that day is a goof.............

and if it is, then I got fooled. But until I see proof that he says IT IS NOT related, then can we agree its at least debatable?.

Hey xenosaga is awesome (well not 2 so much but eh), I wasn't trying to knock it. Xenoblade just got me wanting to play all of the xeno games again. Also yeah, NOTHING in the xeno prefix games is connected outside of xenosaga and its sequels. It's well known by anyone who looks into the games directly. Xenogears isn't related to saga and neither to blade, saga just used some gears stuff for reference bits and nostalgia really. Hell, even shion and jin's last name uzuki is no relation to citan from xenogears. Sucks though, would have made more of an impact if the sword style jin used was derived from the uzuki line, developed by his ancestor citan, right?

Damn I wanna play this game. Wish april would get here faster, cuz I hate importing.

Monolith has a new rpg project they are working on and its either "xeno" related or baten
