Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition announced for Switch (2020)

I am actually glad that I already own it on the Wii and don't need to replay it again because that way I can focus on all the other games on the Switch. They keep popping up nonstop!

You don't need to tell me, like I said, I already own it, and yes, I already finished it, and yes, I already love it xD

But I can just concentrate on other games.

Heh, as someone living in North America, I feel like Nintendo was ashamed of this game during the Wii era (or at least NOA was). Now it's getting the full HD treatment like it was always one of their favorite titles. Funny how things change.

Well, you guys got finally rid of Reggie.

Was going to start XB2 soon, but now I'm going to wait for this!

I wonder if the value of my Wii copy will plummet now. In Europe it's an expensive game to obtain.

Oh, they better not touch the soundtrack. That soundtrack is perfect the way it is!

https://youtu.be/l86GCaqZuxY?t=166 At 2:45 in this clip, is this Xenoblade music?
It sounds like Wild Arms music. So maybe they have the same composer.



I loved Xenoblade Chronicles 2 so I'm very interested in this game. I hope the gameplay and world won't feel too outdated after playing the second game first.



I kind of wish they waited another generation to remake the OG Xenoblade. This has fixed the weaknesses in the original's visuals, the character models and the textures up close, but it doesn't seem to be improving the vistas anywhere near as much as I'd like, and overall it still seems to have the worst visuals in the series. I guess it's to be expected that a remake wouldn't match up to a completely new game. Still will be a real treat for anyone who didn't play it before.

I am a bit mixed on the announcement in general. After further thought, I'm happy it's getting released, but this is the FOURTH time it has come out.
Of all three Xeno-games that would be considered, it is literally the LEAST exciting they could have announced: Xenogears, Xenosaga, or Xenoblade Chronicles X would have all been more exciting.

I doubt you will ever see anything done with xenogears and xenosaga.  I know monolith has the rights to xeno, but with square making and publishing xenogears and namco publishing xenosaga, I’m sure the rights to those games are murky enough that they will be lost to time.
