Xeno-something is coming for Wii U and I want it

Monolithsoft is at it again

Nintendo and Monolithsoft are working on something for Wii U, and I want whatever it is. The team behind Xenoblade Chronicles have something beautiful lined up, but all we got this morning from this morning's Wii U Direct broadcast were a few short snippets of gameplay. Whatever it is looks big and open, and it features parties of three going at big beasts, not unlike Monster Hunter

When dude hopped into a mech at the edge of a cliff and flew off into the sunset I felt a rush of goosebumps come over me, starting from my knees and ending up at the very top of my head. And then they fought in these mechs! Oh My GOD!

It all ended with a big painted 'X' on the screen, telling us that the Xeno series will continue on Wii U.

As for what we know, Kunihiko Tanako, the character designer of two of my favorite games ever, Xenogears and Xenosaga, is on board. The music from Japanese film and TV composer Hiroyuki Sawano had me all choked up. Finally, Tetsuya Takahashi, the director of Xenogears, Xenosaga, and Xenoblade is at the helm. How could this not be the best thing ever made?

Sorry, still freaking out here.
