Its #XenoWeek, Torna is out as part of the Expansion Pass in 4 days and it’s time to bring back our old fan interviews and this time, all questions are dedicated to Xenoblade Chronicles and Xeno. Answering our questions today, is none other than Switch Nindies!
Me, You & Xeno with Switch Nindies
Q1. Name and/or Known Alias? Switch Nindies
Q2. What was the first Xeno game you played? Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Q3. What was the last Xeno game you played? Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Q4. Do you have a singular favourite Xeno game? Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Q5. What is it about Xenoblade Chronicles 2 that you love so much? Being my first Xenoblade title, XC2 launched me into a brand new JRPG franchise that I never thought I’d be interested in before. I’ve been a huge fan of games like Dragon Quest and other well-known JRPGs. This is also my first title from Monolith Soft.
Q6. If you could only see just one Xenoblade Chronicles game ported to the Nintendo Switch, what game would you choose: Xenoblade Chronicles or Xenoblade Chronicles X? Xenoblade Chronicles as an enhanced HD port done in the art style of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Although XC2 isn’t directly connected, I’d still like to venture back and see where the series all began in HD.
Q7. As far as Xeno as Super Smash Bros. go, Xeno only has one rep. If you could have any character from any game, who would it be and why? Rex/Pyra as they are the main protagonists. They rep XC2 fairly well and are the faces of the latest game in the franchise.
Q8. Who would win in a fight, Rex or Shulk? Shulk
Q9. What would you rather, a Fire Emblem Heroes-like gacha game for mobile for a Xeno Warriors? Xenoblade Warriors
Q10. A true Xeno Warriors game would be nothing without reps from every game, if you could pick just 20 characters who would be in playable in it, who would you choose? Since I’ve only played XC2, I’d have to go with a couple of my favorites. Rex, Pyra, Mythra, Nia, Morag, Zeke, Kos-mos, & Tel-os. Also through in Shulk and Fiora in their XC2 styles.
Q11. Who is your “Best Girl” in Xenoblade Chronicles 2? Hmmm this is a tough one…. it would have to go between Mythra or Pnuema.
Q12. Who is your “Best Boy” in Xenoblade Chronicles 2? Tora
Q13. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has a number of fantastic Rare Blades. Which of them have a place on your Top 10 Blades list for XC2? In no particular order minus Pyra and Mythra….
Q14. Being the gift that keeps giving, the Expansion Pass for Xenoblade Chronicles 2, comes packed to the rafters. Did you pick up? Picking it up this week for Torna!
Q15. With Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country, launching physically this month, will you be picking up the physical copy, or just plaything through it digitally when the version 2.0 update drops on September 14? Digital Expansion Pass for now with Physical later down the line for my collection.
Q16. What does Xenoblade and the Xeno series in general, mean to you? *No Answer given.
Q17. What is a Xeno moment you will always treasure? The ending of XC2. I don’t think a game has ever made me cry during the final cuts-cenes and credits than this game has.
Q18. On a scale of 1 to 10, how hyped are you for Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country? 10
Q19. As far as Xenoblade Chronicles 2 goes, how does it compare to other Xeno games you’ve played? I got nothing to compare it to (Yet) as this is my first game in the franchise!
Q20. Since a true fan can both like and hate things about a series they love, what do you love most about the Xeno, and what do you hate about them? While many fans may hate the random gacha of pulling for Rare Blades, I felt like it was something I liked as it gave me something to go after. Only thing I would say I disliked were some of the affinity charts as a few of them came off as tedious.
Q21. If Nintendo were to announce Xenoblade amiibo cards, what would your reaction be and would you purchase them? ‘m a huge amiibo collector so I’d most likely go for an entire set. Xenoblade themed would make it even more of a bonus!
Q22. If you were creating a Xeno dream team, who would you have and why? *No Answer given.
Q23. Where do you hope Xeno and Xenoblade Chronicles go from here? *No Answer given.
