Xenoblade has finally arrived on the Switch– but what’s different? Well for starters, the Definitive Edition of the game adds new story content in addition to the significant graphical upgrade. Future Connected, the game’s 20-hour epilogue, explores the consequences of the main story’s climactic ending; something veterans of the franchise will especially appreciate.
But perhaps the most impressive and enjoyable addition in the Definitive Edition is the overall refinement. The setting, combat system, and graphics have all been finely tuned and enhanced. “A diverse, gorgeous world” awaits you Gamespot writes, one that “still impresses 10 years later.” Eurogamer conducted an in-depth look at the new edition’s remastering and arrived at this glowing conclusion:
[Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition] is a great way to revisit the title or play it for the first time. It remains one of the finest RPGs Nintendo has published over the years.
