Where do I even start? Xenoblade Chronicles X is positively massive in every sense of the word. The physical space of it’s world is massive, the depth of it’s systems is massive, the amount of content in general is massive. It’s no wonder that Nintendo has provided optional Installation Downloads to keep loading times moving at a steady clip for people playing using the physical disc.

Fire Emblem has never really been my bag but it's clear that Fire Emblem Fates is going to build on what made Awakening such a success: classic Fire Emblem combat, a bevy of character relationships to forge, and excellent character design by Yusuke Kozaki. Nintendo hasn't addressed whether or not Fates will be releasing in two separate retail versions with DLC story scenarios like it will in Japan, but either way this might be one of the summer must-haves. With a June 25th release date there's not much of a wait left for the quintessential strategy RPG series' return.
