As reported by Erik Kain of Forbes, the mystery game resembles Xenoblade. However, it looks better and features a glorious theme song. Furthermore, the trailer ends with a big red “X,” firing up the speculation that it can be sequel or a continuation of the Xenoblade story.

In addition, the trailer reveals that the characters were designed by Kunihiko Takana, while the musical score was created by Hiroyuki Sawano. The mystery game’s executive director Tetsuya Takahashi

However, one of Kain’s readers pointed out that the “X” mark might point to a new Xenogears title instead of Xenoblade. But Nintendo doesn’t have the right to Xenogears, making an upcoming sequel or spin-off of Xenoblade more likely.
