E3 09: Monado: Beginning of the World rocks the Wii out

4:20 PM on 06.02.2009 // Ben Perlee

Well, what do you know! Monado: The Beginning of the World is an action RPG for the Wii, with a solidly Japanese aesthetic and pretty cool visuals. We don’t exactly know too much that’s going on with this one, but it looks like it’s a game from the Kingdom Hearts school of action slashing fun.

While I’m not exactly the biggest fan of games that place you in the role of some doe-eyed teenage boy who discovers the “power within” to overcome the overwhelming authoritarian, I’m fairly impressed with the general art style of the game. I mean, this is the Wii we are talking about!  Coupled with the Square-quality graphics, edgy enemies and billowy music, I’m feel like I’m watching Final Fantasy XII for the Wii. And who knows, maybe this game can get the gameplay to follow up the visuals.

We’ll tell you more once the information rolls in.
