Below are the full patch notes:

Elma returning from Xenoblade Chronicles X wasn’t today’s only big news for Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Also announced, Nintendo has given a first look at an entirely new Rare Blade. The name was a bit difficult to make out, but it sounds something like “Marvin”.

Nintendo says that this is a powerful Blade that can use the Smash status. It’ll be included as part of the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Expansion Pass.

Update: We’ve clipped out Elma’s trailer below.

Original: Much in the way that Shulk and Fiora from the original Xenoblade Chronicles returned in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Elma from Xenoblade Chronicles X will be returning in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Nintendo gave a first look in a new gameplay video today.

Nintendo hasn’t truly explained how Elma will be appearing. However, the trailer did show Rex and crew battling her as well as the character being used as a Blade.
