Nintendo has announced that their next Nintendo Direct will be all about Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Since we already know about its release date, we will probably see some new gameplay footage and more information about its world. Nintendo Direct will be live on November 7th, and we can’t wait for it to show us how the game is performing on Nintendo Switch.
According to Nintendo, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 release date is December 1, 2017, for North America and Europe, so we still have a little time to find more about the title before we dive into it.
Alongside the Nintendo Direct announcement, Xenoblade Chronicle 2 official website is now open, including some story bits about the main characters: Rex, Pyra, and Tora as well as a bit of exposition about their main foes. There you can also explore the world where the game is stated in and some basic information about the user interface of the battles you will be facing in-game.
Nintendo has also revealed the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Special Edition. The special edition will include a copy of the game, soundtrack CD, a 220-page art book, and a special steel-book case. Also, a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 themed Nintendo Switch pro controller will also be released on December 1, 2017.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is already available for pre-order for $59.99 for its basic edition and $99.99 for the Special Edition we mentioned earlier. You can also grab a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller featuring a special Xenoblade Chronicles 2 theme, which includes motion controls, HD Rumble feature, built-in amiibo™ functionality with compatible games, and more.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is the sequel to the original Xenoblade Chronicles, which came out on the Wii back in 2010 and was later ported to the New Nintendo 3DS in 2015. The game won critical acclaim, and with Xenoblade Chronicles 2, it’s finally getting a sequel instead of a spiritual successor.
