Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Last week, Torna – The Golden Country was announced as the big story expansion for Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Monolith Soft executive director Tetsuya Takahashi has since shared more on the new content and how it came to be.

Takahashi reveals that Torna – The Golden Country was included with the team’s original prototype for the main game – or “one of the potential story candidates”. However, it was determined that the Torna content “would divert a major portion of the budget and development time we had allotted for Xenoblade Chronicles 2.” The concept was abandoned, but Takahashi still had it on his PC, and it was brought back in the form of the expansion / DLC.

Nintendo has passed along updated fact sheets for a trio of games featured at E3 this week: Daemon X Machina, Xenoblade 2: The Golden Country, and Super Mario Party. All three received updated information following the Nintendo Direct that took place a few days ago. For the latest details, check out the fact sheets below.

At the end of this week, Nintendo dropped the next big piece of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 DLC. Expansion Pass owners can get their hands on the Battle Challenge Mode Pack. Get a lengthy look at the DLC in the gameplay video below.

Update: Bumped to the top. Added in the patch notes below.


Original: The next big update for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has arrived. Version 1.5.0 is live, along with the Challenge Battle Mode for Expansion Pass owners.

Challenge Battle Mode “gives players many chances to test their skills, plenty of loot to earn, and some minor story elements that show the characters in a new light”. You’ll be taking on hordes of enemies in Waves to complete each challenge. Additionally, Shulk and Fiora from the first Xenoblade Chronicles join the fight as Blades.

We’ll bring you the full patch notes for today’s update as soon as we have them.
