After previously being confirmed to hit Japan before the end of this year, Nintendo formally announced during their digital E3 showcase today that anticipated Nintendo Switch RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will also release in the West before the end of 2017! The game appears to be targeting a Holiday 2017 release window in North America, but still has yet to receive a proper release date.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will tell a new story with similar gameplay mechanics as the previous Xenoblade Chronicles games. The game stars a new protagonist named Rex, who is searching for the fabled land of Elysium. This true sequel also appears to be unaffiliated with the Wii U’s previous Xenoblade Chronicles follow-up, Xenoblade Chronicles X, which now appears to be being treated as a more open-world-focused spin-off.
