Open-World RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 gets official release date, gameplay video, and Special Edition
Welcome to the world of Alrest.
Nintendo was nothing if not informative in their latest Direct livestream. With in-depth trailers for Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, Super Mario Odyssey, Project Octopath Traveler, and Skyrim, there was a ton of information to absorb. On top of all that, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is somehow fitting into Nintendo's 2017 release calendar as it has been confirmed that the game will launch on December 1st, 2017.
Here's the new gameplay footage:
If you're a huge Xenoblade fan, Nintendo will also be releasing a Special Edition of the game which will come with a sound selection CD with music from the game, a unique metal case for your cartridge, and a 220-page hard bound art book. The Special Edition will retail for $99.99 and is now available for pre-order at Best Buy.
Here's a look at what the Special Edition brings:
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is the third game in the series which began back in 2012 with the original Xenoblade Chronicles while the Wii U got Xenoblade Chronicles X three years later in 2015.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 releases exclusively on Nintendo Switch on December 1st, 2017.
