Xenoblade Chronicles X may be weeks away, but you can start getting hype now.

Xenoblade Chronicles X launches on December 4 but Arekkz already has his hands on the Wii U exclusive.

You can see the first 30 minutes of the open-world RPG below. There’s a bit of footage of the character creator in there, too, but keep an eye out for a closer look at the customisation tools later in the week.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is a spiritual successor to the sadly under-appreciated Xenoblade Chronicles, and is the latest in a long series of games to carry on the Xeno legacy. If you have any interest in JRPGs and Monolith Soft, you should take a look.

If you’re picking it up at retail, be sure to download the Xenoblade Chronicles X data packs to reduce loading times.
