Xenoblade Chronicles X Map Is 5 Times Bigger Than First Game!

Anyone who has played Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii knows that the game has one of the largest overworlds ever produced for a JRPG. The game was jam packed with content and many gamers (myself included) would often wander from the core story to explore the massive world for hours at a time. In a recent EDGE Magazine article, Shinya Takahashi (General Manager - Nintendo Software Planning & Development Division) stated that the map for Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U will be roughly 5 times bigger than the original Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii.
Vehicles are called Dolls. They are 5 Times larger than a person. So to get the same feel as Xenoblade Chronicles, the map would need to be 5 times bigger. The game world in X is in fact even bigger than that.
Basically, this means that Xenoblade Chronicles X may very well have one of the largest JRPG maps of all time and when you consider the quality of the original game, Wii U owners are in for a real treat. This also means that you likely won't need a new RPG for quite some time since the original title took over 70 hours just to complete the core story. Enjoy!
