One of Nintendo’s flagship titles for their current console has arrived! Grab your blades and a map, we’re heading out for an adventure!


Xenoblade Chronicles 2, the third game in Monolith Soft’s acclaimed JRPG series, arrives for the Nintendo Switch tomorrow. The number affixed to the game’s title represents how this installment is more closely harkening back to the original Xenoblade, meaning you’re about to embark on an epic story-driven quest! Rex and his new lady pal, Pyra, are headed to the mythical land known as Elysium. They’ll make many allies and fight numerous foes along the way, so get ready to fight!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is so big, in fact, that it has some DLC planned, too. A free voice pack bearing the Japanese voice cast will launch alongside the game, and an Expansion Pass will supply bold adventurers with additional content. A recent Nintendo Direct outlined what the latter will entail.

Nine Parchments will be available on December 5 for those who aren’t feeling Xenoblade. This RPG can be enjoyed with up to three friends. You’ll play as rookie wizards, though they’ll soon be challenged by some rather unpleasant creatures. A demo is available, too.
