Similar to Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics, Nintendo is holding nothing back when it comes to the promotion of Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, and despite the fact, the upcoming release is a remaster of a ten-year-old title, we’re still going to take the time to share a variety of the released information with regards to characters, combat & content:
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition – The Characters:
Meet the protagonist of #XenobladeChronicles Definitive Edition, Shulk! He wields the Monado in battle, which gives him the unique ability to see visions of the future. Meet Shulk for the first time, or reunite with this beloved hero when the game launches on 5/29!
Shulk’s childhood friend and the younger sister of Dunban, Fiora is a cheerful, energetic, and caring young woman. She gets along well with Shulk, and often cooks for him.
Looks like it’s time to talk about Reyn! He’s a childhood friend of Shulk and Fiora, and a member of Colony 9’s Defence Force. Unlike Shulk, who prefers to spend his time studying the Monado, he’s a wild and hotheaded guy.
In #XenobladeChronicles Definitive Edition, Melia is a High Entia girl who lives in the Imperial Capital of Alcamoth, on the head of Bionis. She acts with a refined and serious demeanor, and becomes a trusted ally to Shulk. Her attacks with the Ether Arts are extremely powerful!
Fiora’s older brother, Dunban is known as a hero who saved Bionis with the Monado! He’s no longer able to use his right arm due to the excessive power of the Monado, but wields a katana in combat with just his left arm.
The chosen Heropon, Riki, joins Shulk’s group! While he seems a little immature, he’s actually a father with eleven children! He doesn’t look like it…
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition – The Combat:
If you notice a “!” in the midst of battle, that’s your cue to use an Art to its full effect – such as an iconic Back Slash when behind an enemy! #XenobladeChronicles
Unleash a Chain Attack for a powerful team-based move in Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition! Its overall effectiveness is determined by the combination of attacks you choose, as well as the bond between your party members!
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition – The Content:
Join the fight between man and machine in the definitive edition of this critically-acclaimed RPG
Discover the origins of Shulk as he and his companions clash against a seemingly-unstoppable mechanical menace. Wield a future-seeing blade, chain together attacks, and carefully position your party members in strategic, real-time combat as you journey across a massive world.
During an attack from the mechanical invaders known as the Mechon, Shulk discovers that he can tap into the full power of a mysterious blade known as the Monado. With the mighty Monado in hand, Shulk sets out to defeat the Mechon once and for all.
In addition to the Mechon, you’ll run into wildlife that ranges from docile to deadly. Keep an eye on what attracts monsters’ attention to avoid unwanted conflict…or try your hand at bringing down an ultra-powerful Unique Monster.
Upgrade your party as you progress through the adventure by selecting equipment, enhancing weapon skills, and using benefit-granting gems. Put your dependable companions to work by filling the party gauge to trigger a Chain Attack and attack enemies in quick succession!
