A vast world, reimagined

NSwitch__XenobladeChronicles_DefinitiveEdition_WhatsNew_VastWorld_Img.png

With enhanced HD graphics that include animated facial expressions and polished landscapes, the lands of Bionis and Mechonis can be experienced in all-new ways. Some of the game’s soundtrack has also been rerecorded, allowing you to choose between both the original and arranged background music to fully immerse in the majesty of this vast world.

More to the story…

NSwitch__XenobladeChronicles_DefinitiveEdition_WhatsNew_FutureConnected_Logo.jpg

Set one year after the events of Xenoblade Chronicles, Future Connected is a newly included story chapter starring Shulk, Melia, and other new characters. It’s available right from the start and can be experienced at any time – though new players may want to discover Shulk’s main adventure first!

Your journey, your way

Whether you’re a series veteran or stepping into Bionis for the first time, two new modes are available to give you the journey that you desire. Lower the difficulty set in battles with Casual Mode, or take more control over your earned EXP and distribute it manually in Expert Mode.

And much more!

  • Customise your characters to your heart’s content with new equipment and outfits
  • Explore expansive lands with ease thanks to an improved user interface and the ability to auto-run without needing to hold down a button
  • Take on Time Attack challenges to earn rewards
  • Re-watch any cutscene in the Event Theatre, and even adjust the scene’s weather, time of day, or certain characters’ appearances!
