Nintendo is finally giving its heralded Wii RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles, another go on the Switch, and it's out this Friday, May 29. The Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is joined by a new 250-page art book dubbed Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Works that will be bundled with the US-exclusive $80 Definitive Works Set, which is currently back in stock at GameStop one day before release. Meanwhile, fans in the UK can grab the Collector's Set, which comes with a few more goodies.
The biggest addition to the Definitive Edition is the brand-new epilogue, Future Connected, which provides some incentive for those who have already played Monolith Soft's grand adventure to grab it again on Switch. The Switch version also includes some quality-of-life improvements, including remixed music, updated controls, and enhanced visuals. Menu screens will be more user-friendly and feature easier-to-read text, too.
Our Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition review is live now, and the game earned a 9/10 for its rewarding combat, fantastic soundtrack, and diverse, gorgeous world. "Although not every aspect of Xenoblade Chronicles has aged as well as others, Definitive Edition proves that Xenoblade Chronicles is still a fantastic JRPG with an immense amount of strategic depth that's still impressive in 2020. Its bevy of improvements and additions, as well as its fantastic epilogue, make this an adventure worth embarking on a decade later," wrote GameSpot's Jake Dekker.
