The latest Xenoblade Chronicles X tweets from earlier today have been translated and they give us a small bit more insight on their thoughts about Tatsu and a fun tidbit about their homepage.


We had a new plush made for Tatsu… but at the start of development, there were actually quite a few arguments about whether we should put Nopon in the game or not.

Then the event planners started pushing lots of Nopon-related ideas, and in the end, Takahashi joined in on the fun and came up with the character of Tatsu. Now, we’re really glad that we put them in the game after all.
