Monolith Soft Project Codename “Legacy” Reportedly in Development at Nintendo

    A legacy awaits.

    Notable leaker Midori has commented that Monolith Soft is reportedly working on a project codenamed “Legacy”. This project is not related to Xenosaga, according to Midori, but it will be interesting to see whether this is Xenoblade Chronicles 4 or something else entirely.

    The company currently has over 200 developers, which means it is likely they are working on multiple projects at once. It is expected that their first title for the Nintendo Switch successor will launch next year, possibly a sequel to 2022’s Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Following the company’s release pattern, they skipped one year entirely and then released a game and DLC the following year. So, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was released in 2022, with Future Redeemed in 2023. This year, we will not receive a Monolith Soft project, leaving 2025 looking like a prime release time.

    Midori is best known for her reporting on SEGA, with her previously confirming that the Jet Set Radio title showcased at The Game Awards 2023 would land on next-generation Nintendo hardware. She backed this up multiple times, stating, “Every Atlus and Sega remake is also releasing on Switch 2.” Besides her comments on JSR, Midori has an extensive track record with SEGA/Atlus titles. 

    Specifically with Persona, Midori revealed Persona 3 Reload The Answer DLC before datamines occurred. Also, Midori has claimed Persona 2 and Persona 4 remakes are in the works at ATLUS. All of the Persona 3 Reload rumors turned out to be true, including the Expansion Pass and Episode Aigis -The Answer-. In addition, Midori claims that Persona 6 will come to Xbox platforms and Nintendo Switch 2 at launch, and that the game will feature a green motif.

    Just last week, Midori also revealed information on Kingdom Hearts IV
