I'm trying to avoid trailers because I don't want to spoil anything. I'll probably end up buying a WiiU just for this game.

The only thing that I'm not too enthoused about is the character models and I'm hearing that we are getting a silent protagionist (not sure if true though).

Same here- apart form the trailers.... I've been drooling over every one I can find. Characters do look a bit..... doll-like. I started playing SO4 again recently and there's an uncanny resemblance between the models in both games.
I can deal with the silent protagonist, I just hope they're not a 'fifth-wheel' type character like the White Knight Chronicles avatar ended up being. Make our hero important, please! ^_^

Said it before, and I'll say it again: my reason for getting a Wii U

...Although there's a chance Persona 5 will come out around the same time so I'd likely prioritize the game that's on a console I own

"Xenoblade Saga" is the best Wii RPG in my opinion. The sequel will be a great reason to pick up a Wii U. If it doesn't get a Stateside release, I'm going to import a Japanese Wii U, the original XS almost didn't get a US release.

The thing about Xeno-games (Xenosaga, Xenoblade, Xenogears) is that they sell better in the west than in Japan (Persona games also sell better in the west).

Xenoblade has 400K sales, at one retailer with 0 marketing. Plus its a cash cow for used sales at gamestop. It was never in doubt that X wasn't coming here.

This is the story of how "Xenoblade" almost didn't get a Stateside release. Nintendo of America said in 2011 that "Xenoblade" didn't look like a bankable title for the US, as was "The Last Story". This led to a video that went viral on Youtube from a group of gamers calling themselves "Operation Rainfall" demanding the games get released ("Xenoblade" was released in Europe months before it came here, which is why most of the voice acting have British accents). In the end, Nintendo changed their minds, releasing "Xenoblade" as an exclusive at Gamestop where it became a sleeper hit while "The Last Story" got released by Xseed.

Yeah silent protag seems likely as you can customize your characters voice (like how MMOs do it).

Honestly, I'm not sure why I feel this way but i think this game is gonna suck. Xenoblade was definitely amazing and lived up to all the hype that surrounded it (in my eyes), but I can't help but wonder if they can repeat that or not. So far the characters haven't excited me in the least bit and the videos out there showcasing the battle system haven't excited me either. I liked Xenoblade's battle system a lot and this is supposed to be an improved version of Xenoblade's so despite the videos not getting me interested, I am still hopeful it will be good.

Worst case scenario, I go into Xenoblade Chronicles X extremely jaded and I end up being very pleasantly surprised. I hope it's the case.

I know there is a lot of hype around it. However Takahashi as director (Xenogears, XS episode 1, Xenoblade) hasn't failed me yet. XS episode 1 and XG are my 2 favorite games and Xenoblade was excellent.

I'm so excited for X! I loved Xenoblade on the Wii, so can't wait to see what this one's got in store. It looks huge, and the battle system looks like it's been improved. The only thing I'm worried about is how the plot and world will compare to it's predecessor.
