For good or for ill, I'm not quite sure.

It appears that the Big N has bought Monolithsoft. I had a lot of hope (back in 1999 when the news about Tetsuya Takahashi leaving Square to form his own development house first broke) that it would mean a continuation of the fantastic Xenogears RPG. What we got was a poorly conceived "retelling" of the early parts of the Xenogears story (early, because the series was planned poorly, no one followed the plan, or there never was a real plan).

Now that they're under control of Nintendo, I don't know what to expect. The Wii is in desperate need of RPGs to bolster their lineup. And though neither series was very successful, I'm betting they'll end up expanding on the Baten Kaitos series (a Gamecube project by Monolithsoft) story rather than Xenosaga series.
