Nintendo spotlights Xenoblade Chronicles 2 before its launch on 1st December
7th November, 2017 – In just a few weeks, Nintendo Switch owners will leave the familiar behind and enter the fantastical world of Alrest – a world full of living lands known as Titans and the fabled paradise of Elysium. To get fans ready for the 1st December launch of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Nintendo presented a deep dive into elements of the massive game, including the vast environments, battle system, and characters. This special Nintendo Direct presentation also revealed upcoming DLC, a cross-promotion with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, as well as a free day-one downloadable content pack that will allow players to play the game with Japanese audio and English subtitles.
Fans can already get a taste for the alternative voice option by checking out a brand new Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – Characters Trailer:
Fans who want to expand their epic adventure can purchase an Expansion Pass for the game. With this pass, players can enjoy DLC as it releases between launch and autumn 2018, starting with quests and support items, and eventually including a challenge mode where they can face powerful enemies, and even an additional adventure with a new side-story set in the world of Elysium. Details about individual elements of the Expansion Pass will be released in the future.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will launch exclusively for Nintendo Switch on 1st December. The same day will also see the launches of the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller – Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Edition and the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Collector’s Edition. This special version includes the game, a beautifully illustrated softcover art book filled with 220 pages of concept designs and artwork of the characters, landscapes and objects from the game, a sound-selection CD of some of the game’s memorable music tracks, and a special metal case containing the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 game card. Players who prefer to play the digital version, so that the adventure is always with them on Nintendo Switch, can pre-order the game from Nintendo eShop now, either standalone or as a bundle with the Expansion Pass. Players who pre-order in Nintendo eShop will then be among the first to play as soon as the game is available on 1st December.
