Visions of the future incoming.
While we will not share details of the ending to Xenoblade Chronicles: Future Connected, in this post, we will report on what can be acquired upon beating the additional campaign.
Instead of doing a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country, and giving us the option of a New Game+ playthrough, Future Connected is completely standalone and something you will only need to play through once, to see everything.
For example, during a 12 and a half an hour session with Future Connected, we’ve tracked down every Unique Monster, played through 36/40 side quests, found all 12 Ponspectors, seen all 14 Quiet Moments, found 4 Giant’s Troves and filled out the Collectopedia.
All that’s actually left to do, is purchase every available Arts for all 4 characters, fully upgrade them and round up missing clothing items. So, yes, Future Connected is shorter in terms of completion, but it’s an enjoyable adventure nonetheless.
Getting back on topic, although a New Game+ isn’t a completion reward, the following are new game elements players can unlock:
- Shulk’s weapon’s look can be changed in ‘Future Connected’
- The 8th challenge in the main game’s Time Attack is unlocked
- Master-level Arts Manuals have been added to the main game’s Time Attack item exchange, letting you improve Arts up to level XII
For those of you who were hoping for something more, we hope you still enjoy your time with Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition.
