Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition

Hello my mini listeners! This week on the Nintendo Everything Podcast, we celebrate a drop of water in a desert with the Nintendo Direct Mini! Xenoblade, Bravely Default II demo, ARMS in Smash, Good Job!—there were a lot of highlights. And just before then, we’ve got more on why Animal Crossing is the perfect answer to social distancing. If you were ever curious what the first week of New Horizons is like, Mary’s got you covered. Galen also shares the tragic backstory he’s role-playing his Animal Crossing villager with. And the gang discusses a double dose of horror-action with the Resident Evil 3 demo and The Evil Within 2.

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.

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.
