Nintendo has released a character trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 that focuses on Rex and Pyra, among others during their Nintendo Direct presentation. What’s even more interesting is that Rex’s Blade, Pyra, is encased in a Zohar-like structure (!!!!). While this is just a prelude to this morning’s direct, the trailer seems to be full of spoilers, so watch it at your own risk! This is my most anticipated game of the year and Monolith Soft has overtaken Square Enix in their prowess. Xenoblade is the new Final Fantasy. It’s also interesting to note that the graphics look much better than they ever did at E3 2017. I am beyond excited!
The trailer has Japanese audio with English subtitles (sorry for everyone who loves the British voices!), and will be day-one free DLC.
Tetsuya Takahashi’s newest masterpiece releases for the Nintendo Switch on December 1 right in time for the holidays. Nintendo sure has an amazing release schedule this year for the Switch and I personally cannot wait to delve into this game!
As a Xeno fan from the beginning, this game looks like it may have the makings of Takahashi’s best game yet. It’s magical and I hope it ties into the larger Xeno mythos somehow!
