Xenoblade (JP) (commonly referred to as Xenoblade Chronicles) is a series of action RPG games developed by Monolith Soft and published by Nintendo that acts as the spiritual successor to the Xenogears and Xenosaga series. The series started to obtain fame and awareness in the Nintendo fanbase after Shulk's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
