Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition coming to Nintendo Switch May 29

In today's Nintendo Direct, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition was announced for release on May 29th. The original Xenoblade Chronicles game, which marked the debut of fan-favorite character Shulk, is coming to Nintendo Switch with a new epilogue story, Xenoblade Chronicles: Future Connected included in the Definitive Edition. The epilogue story can be played separately from the main game.

This definitive edition of the RPG is getting some updates. It looks better and plays smoother than before, the battle HUD and menu screens are easier to read and use and some of the music tracks have been remastered. On the same day, the Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Works Set will also launch, featuring a 250-page artbook full of beautiful landscapes, imposing monsters and more. The Nintendo eShop page is here.
