Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Character Trailer

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!


Nintendo Has Announced the Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Has Announced The Nintendo Switch

Nintendo has announced the Nintendo Switch, their brand new home console, via a short teaser trailer today. The release window is still March 2017, though no specific date was given. One thing that makes the Nintendo Switch so unique is that it is portable. You can take it on the bus, on an airplane, and even play it on a long car trip. It is also visible in the trailer that the system will use cartridges, as previously rumored.

The Nintendo Switch itself rests in a dock, which connects to your TV. You can remove the Nintendo Switch, which is like a high-definition tablet, from the dock and attach Joy-Con controllers to it. You can also play with the more traditional Joy-Con grip accessory, or purchase the Nintendo Switch pro controller. The Nintendo Switch is so multifaceted which may be the most impressive thing about it. There are already a number of third-party developers on board praising the system. Whether this translates to third-party support is up to debate. Skyrim was shown during the Nintendo Switch trailer though, which would be huge for the system.

In fact, we got a number of quick glimpses of titles for the Nintendo Switch. We will delve into this later, but if these games are potential launch titles for the Switch, Nintendo may be back on track.

Breath of the Wild Release Date Outed

The Breath of the Wild Release date may have been outed by way of the amiibo release date, possibly paving the way for the launch date for Nintendo’s epic title which may have been leaked on several official European Nintendo websites. The release date is listed as March 4, 2017. The date also shows up in the sites’ source code.



This may point the way to both Breath of the Wild’s release date but also the release date for the codename Nintendo NX. This Breath of the Wild release date is plausible, considering the NX was said to release in March and Breath of the Wild is a no-brainer as a launch title for the system. The last time a Nintendo system launched with a Zelda game was the Wii, and that game, Twilight Princess, had an initial 75% attach rate to the system. There is no doubt that Breath of the Wild will launch on the Nintendo NX, it’s just a matter of when the system will be released. The Super Smash Bros. amiibo were released in the same time frame as Super Smash Bros. was released for the Wii U, so it is likely that if this information is legit, this is the launch window for the NX.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
