Nintendo surprised fans today by launching a mini direct featuring 25 minutes of new announcements and news. Among these announcements was the reveal of the Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition for Nintendo Switch.
Originally released on the Wii in 2010, the Switch remaster will arrive on May 29, 2020. The game will launch on the Switch with updated grapchis, improved battle HUD, menus, and over 90 remastered audio tracks. Those who pick it up will also be able to experience a completely new epilogue story featuring Melia and Shulk called Xenoblade Chronicles: Future Connected.
You can check out the new trailer for the Definitive Edition above. As you can see, the graphics and HUD have been updated to provide a smoother experience overall. If you haven't played through Xenoblade Chronicles before, and you're looking for a great RPG to sink your teeth into, then I highly recommend checking it out when the game hits the Switch later this year. It's great to see such a classic being revisited, and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how everything has changed in the remastered edition.
