Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition

With Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition quickly coming up on its release, Digital Foundry has gone hands-on to examine how it holds up from a technical perspective. Aside from going over details like resolution and frame rate, we also are able to better understand what’s been changed from the Wii version.

Below are the main highlights:

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is rewarding players for having played Xenoblade Chronicles 2. When starting up the game for the first time, a notice will appear offering free 100,000G.

Accepting or denying the reward is entirely up to you. However, it can’t be redeemed later on, so you’ll only have one chance to collect it.


Nintendo has prepared a new update to go alongside the launch of Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. When booting up the game, you should be able to access version 1.1.1.

Patch notes have not yet been made available at this time. Nintendo will presumably share more information later on, and we’ll let you know if any additional details come in.

Nintendo has shared the latest trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition that introduces the RPG’s many environments. We have the video below.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has just a couple of days to go until its official launch, and reviews are now starting to come in. We’ve rounded up some of the early verdicts below.

Nintendo and Monolith Soft have shared a short but notable update for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. This time around, we have a brief introduction to Casual Mode.

Casual Mode is completely option in the game. But when enabled, battles will become easier. Those that aren’t as experienced or are looking for less of a challenge can play through the RPG with this feature.

Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition appears to run between 504p and 720p while docked. Handheld resolution is between 378p and 540p.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition includes a feature that can make the game more challenging for players. When playing in Expert Mode, it’s possible to stock up on EXP to more easily control character levels.

Players can earn experience in different ways such as through normal battles, completing sidequests, and entering new areas. But in Expert Mode, you control the EXP and use what you’ve collected when you want to level up. You’ll also get EXP back when you choose to lower the level of character, you get EXP back.
