Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition had a big blowout in this week’s Nintendo Direct Mini. We finally know that the RPG is coming to Switch on May 29, and new information about what’s new for this release was shared. Additional tidbits have since come in as well.

Future Connected is a brand new epilogue created for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. Have you already played the game on another system? Then you’ll be happy to hear that you can access Future Connected immediately – you don’t have to beat the story to access the extra story.

Update: This is now up on Amazon Germany here. However, it doesn’t appear to ship outside of Germany.


The Nintendo UK store has opened pre-orders for the Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Collector’s Set. You can reserve a copy here.

The Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Collector’s Set comes with a 250-page artbook, steelbook, vinyl featuring the Monado printed on the sleeve, and a poster. You’ll also receive a Monado keychain from the Nintendo UK store as a bonus.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is launching on Switch in a couple of months following previous releases on Wii and New 3DS. A new comparison video for all three versions can be found below.

The official Japanese website for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has updated with some music tracks from the game. Not only do we get to hear a couple of tracks that have been remastered, but we also get a sample of a new tune made for the Future Connected epilogue. All of the music can be heard in the video below.

We have a look at Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition with five minutes of story footage. Check it out in the video below.

Earlier today, Nintendo dated Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition for May 29. We also found out about the Definitive Works Set, which features a 250-page artbook full of beautiful landscapes, imposing monsters and more.

Meanwhile in Europe, the Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Collector’s Set has been announced. It comes with the same art book, but also a steelbook, poster, and vinyl featuring the Monado printed on the sleeve.

We imagine that many of you will be more interested in the European special edition, and thankfully importing is an option since Switch is region-free. We’ll keep you updated on pre-orders going forward.

We’re a couple of months out from the release of Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, but you can already pre-order the game now from the eShop. You’ll need 13.6GB of space to do so.

Today, Nintendo added in a listing for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition on the European (and Australian) Switch eShop. It contains the same brief information, trailer, and screenshots we’ve already seen, but it’s interesting that the page has only just now appeared, seemingly at a random time. Perhaps we’ll hear more about it soon.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition was announced during the last general Nintendo Direct in September 2019. Nintendo hasn’t shared any new information about the remake since then.

Today, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has received an age rating in South Korea. This usually means that the game is in a mostly complete state and as such, its release date isn’t too far away. The last time we heard anything about the game was when it was announced back in September of last year; the game’s official release date is still a rather vague “2020”. Hopefully we’ll hear some news soon.
