The physical version of Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s soundtrack debuted in Japan this week. Included inside is a booklet, which features a discussion with Monolith Soft boss Tetsuya Takahashi and Koh Kojima, who has been a director on all of the Xenoblade games.

It’s not entirely clear which of the two said it, but it sounds like Takahashi spoke about his interests for future projects. He mentioned wanting to create another Xenoblade sequel, a sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles X, and also making a brand new original story project from scratch.

Last August, Monolith Soft began recruiting for an ambitious new project. Takahashi has also previously expressed interest in bringing Xenoblade Chronicles X to Switch.

At the end of last year, a special Master Works book for Zelda: Breath of the Wild came out in Japan. It featured a ton of concept art, a history section, developer interview, and more.

It will have taken about a year in the end, but the book is confirmed to be coming west. It’ll be localized as “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Creating a Champion”. Nintendo will once again be working with Dark Horse on the western version.

Nintendo has updated its maintenance schedule once again, so we’re rounding up all of the different sessions in place as of today. There will be different periods for Switch, Wii U, and 3DS over the next few days as well as some downtime for using credit cards on the Switch eShop and the web Nintendo store.
