Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition - Nintendo Switch
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is a remake of the original Xenoblade Chronicles with updated graphics and a somewhat different art style. Changes in content are minimal, and mostly consist of quality of life features such as difficulty settings, an improved quest tracker, and fashion gear. New content includes a time trials mode and a handful of new equipment sets.
Definitive Edition also includes a brand-new epilogue chapter, Future Connected, which can be accessed at any time independent of progress in the main game. One year after the events of the original game, Shulk and Melia set off for the imperial city of Alcamoth, of which the latter is crown princess. However, a malevolent, incorporeal being called the Fog King has appeared in the city from a rift in space-time and driven the residents to the Bionis' Shoulder. Tensions between the survivors have fractured their community, leaving them with little hope of ever returning to their homeland. Melia takes it upon herself to reunite her people and retake the capital, and in the process prove her worth as heir to the throne.
Shulk and Melia are joined in their quest by a pair of Nopon named Nene and Kino, children of Riki who wish to follow in their father's footsteps and become heroes. The party are also able to recruit the Ponspectors, a Nopon survey crew who offer their assistance in battle. In addition to randomly jumping in to use special skills, the Ponspectors can combine their power to launch an all-out attack against the enemy. Other mechanics from the main game have been streamlined or removed to better fit the shorter campaign.
