Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Gets Japanese Trailer, Future Connected Details
Nintendo and Monolith Soft released a new Japanese trailer, as well as a couple of minute-long commercials, for the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. The six-minute video gives an overview of the game, showing story and setting elements as well as combat, sidequests, and other gameplay aspects. It also includes a brief look at the new Future Connected epilogue chapter, with extra details provided on the game’s Japanese website.
Future Connected is set roughly a year after the events of the main game. It will be available from the start, but is designed for those who have completed the Definitive Edition or one of the previous releases. Future Connected features Shulk and Melia and takes them to the Bionis’ Shoulder (a location not visited in the main game) as they investigate a disappearance. The pair are joined by the young Nopons Kino and Nene. Future Connected will also include some alterations to the combat system and a group of Nopon surveyors who can help players in battle.
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is a remaster of Monolith Soft’s Xenoblade Chronicles, which was originally released for Nintendo Wii, winning RPGamer’s Game of the Year for 2012, before later being ported to Nintendo 3DS. In addition to the new epilogue chapter, the Definitive Edition includes revamped visuals and UI improvements. Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition will be released physically and digitally worldwide for Nintendo Switch on May 29, 2020.
