Reasons to play ‘Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition’ on Switch


Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition is coming out tomorrow. Reviews say the game has a lot to offer for old fans and new players alike.

On May 29, Nintendo will be releasing Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition on the Switch. Purchasing a new JRPG can give fans a difficult time if they already played all-time classics such as Persona 5.

However, there are a few reasons why fans shouldn’t miss out on Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition.

Amazing gameplay

Xenoblade Chronicle Definitive Edition’s core gameplay and story on the Switch will be similar to its 3DS and Wii versions. Players who have played a previous Xenoblade Chronicle game before, they should expect the same with this game.

For those who haven’t, they are going to be succumbed in a huge, fascinating adventure full of anime-inspired graphics and tropes.

Improved graphics

While this is a definitive version of the original game, it is not a remaster or remake in any form.

Its graphics are similar to the 3DS and Wii versions. However, it will run on Nintendo Switch’s high-resolution system.

Complicated yet natural

Xenoblade Chronicles playstyle is all in real-time which feels like an MMO-inspired game. Players can control one character at a time while the others in the party are automatically controlled.

Every character attacks automatically with various skills. Each skill has its own cooldown period that forces players to plan their every move.

Buffs and debuffs play a critical role in team fights. Almost every skill in the game gives a negative effect to enemies or gives a temporary buff to a team member.

Learning to correctly position the heroes can greatly affect the result of a fight. Most attacks are more potent and will have additional effects if performed in a certain position.

A lot of things to do

As players explore the game deeper, they will find countless enemies to fight, rare items to find and numerous side quests to finish.

Besides these, players will also unlock the ability to remodel a town by donating various kinds of items from around the map.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is the best way to enjoy the Switch right now. Players can engage in the game for hours even before touching the additional contents.

Even if the graphics are a bit dull, the sophisticated combat system makes up for it. According to reviews, Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition is a must-have for all RPG fans who have the Switch.
