Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Confirmed for 2017 Release

It was doubtful Monolith Soft would bring Xenoblade Chronicles 2 to the Switch in 2017 given the history of the franchise’s releases, the scale of the games, and how long it took to bring Xenoblade Chronicles X out.

Lo and behold, Nintendo has silenced the doubters by confirming that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is headed to the Nintendo Switch during the holiday season of 2017.

The much anticipated sequel of the Wii classic promises players “an endless ocean of clouds” accessible for exploration. It will also feature the “last remnants of civilization” living “on the backs of colossal beasts called Titans”.

The story will follow Rex and his new friend Pyra, a mysterious being known as a blade, who will grant him extraordinary powers.

You can see more on what Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has in store in the trailer below.

(And here’s to the game not being pushed back to 2018.)
