Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Creator Helped Boost Splatoon 3
The game, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is not the only title that Monolith Soft worked on this very year. This is so as the JRPG developer also helped provide support on another huge Nintendo release.
Majorly known for JRPGs such as Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Monolith Soft also helped Nintendo Switch‘s latest blockbuster, Splatoon 3. This should however come as no surprise for longtime Monolith Soft fans, although, one look at its development history reveals that the company also helped out on both previous Splatoon titles.
Monolith Soft Is a Real Workhorse for the Nintendo Platform
More study of this list reveals that Monolith Soft is a real workhorse for the Nintendo platform. The JRPG stalwart also helped out in developing Animal Crossing: New Horizons, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and its upcoming sequel, as well as one other title that I really like, Nintendo 3DS cult classic Project X Zone.
The rise of Monolith Soft in my opinion has been one of the most fascinating and surprising in the gaming industry. The platform was founded back in 1999 by Tetsuya Takahashi, a former Square Enix developer. The developer first made its mark on the PS2’s Xenosaga trilogy. The developer however went on to create the Baten Kaitos JRPG series on Gamecube just before being bought out by Nintendo back in 2007. It then launched Xenoblade Chronicles three years later on the Nintendo Wii.
Xenoblade Gained a Large Following Quickly In As Many Years
Xenoblade gained a large following quickly in the following years and thus would however turn into a stable Nintendo IP. It is also however undoubtedly helped along by the inclusion of protagonist Shulk in the Super Smash Bros. title for Wii U and 3DS, and then later Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s Pyra and Mythra as DLC characters in gaming title Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Monolith Soft Is Not Showing Any Signs of Slowing Down
The developer Monolith Soft is however not showing any signs of slowing down at the moment as he is a key and important developer on Breath of the Wild 2, has a new IP currently in the works, and also has hinted at a continuation of the Xenoblade series.
Additionally, there is also the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 expansion pass content that we all have our eyes on with a large story expansion that is coming out in 2023.
