Xenoblade is a jRPG game created by Monolith Software studio. Tetsuya Takahashi also took part in its creation, but despite their connections with the Xenosaga series, the production discussed here is a completely different title and has no connections with this cult series.

The main character is the orphaned 18-year-old Shulk, who in the past took part in a war against the Kishin troops who attacked his village. What seems original is the place of action. It takes place on the bodies of two gods who once fought against each other. One body is inhabited by humans, the other by mechanical beings. The storyline tells the story of how people prepare for the attack of an enemy race.

The game offers large, varied areas for exploration. The main character not only runs in flat locations, but also climbs the mountains or swims. On the other hand, in order to prevent tedious movements between already visited locations, the creators added the possibility of teleporting between them. The mechanics of the game is diversified by changing times of day and night. This affects not only the appearance of the places visited, but also the events themselves - some characters can only be met at the right time.

A treat for fans may be the fact that Yoko Shimomura is responsible for the music in this production, which has recorded soundtracks to such positions as Kingdom Hearts or Parasite Eve.
