Monolith Soft — developer of the Xenoblade franchise and assistant dev to Breath of the Wild and other Nintendo greats — celebrated its whopping 20 years in the video game business this week with a commemorative post on its website, complete with a stunning illustration.

A good half of the post features Xenoblade characters, displaying Shulk, Elma, Rex, and all their friends in stylized aplomb — of course, Monolith’s older and lesser known projects are also well acknowledged, featuring everything from Baten Kaitos and Disaster: Day of Crisis to Project X Zone and Soma Bringer and, of course, Xenosaga.

Happy 20th, Monolith Soft! Here’s to another two decades of big, beautiful games.
