    xenoblade_chronicles_definitive_edition.jpg

    Announced in September of last year, during a Nintendo Direct, was a definitive edition of the cult classic Nintendo Wii JRPG Xenoblade Chronicles. The game has just received a rating via the South Korean ratings board, which previously leaked the existence of XCOM 2 and Catherine: Full Body ports for the Nintendo Switch. With Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition getting rated, it likely means the game is close to finished, meaning we might hear an official release date announcement soon. All we know for certain right now is that the game is set for launch in 2020 for the Nintendo Switch.

    I might actually play it this go around. Got the original on super clearance, but was too janky and jaggy for me to finish. Hopefully this'll have a lot of QoL (quality of life) improvements as well.

    I just can't deal with the fact that they took away the shadings of the characters and made them all moe looking.

    Well at least they have actual mouths and not a blurry 8-bit texture making up their faces.

    Sorry, but the Wii textures look like ass and haven't aged well at all. So don't effing get the game and stick to your precious Wii version then.

    I think I should give this game another chance. I played the Wii version for a bit and I liked the art style, the music and the setting, but apparently I am unable grasp the battle system. It doesn't resemble any other game I ever played.

    The repetive (English) shouts during battles are a bit annoying, too.

    Why so pissy today?

    I said "preferable", not "100% necessary"

    And style has nothing to do with the textures themselves or them being low res

    And what made you think I'd pass on the game just cuz characters look moe? Dumbest thing I have heard today

    Ugh. I couldn't stand this game, some of the most boring, predictable and by-the-numbers JRPG's I've ever played, with an unusual combat system being the only redeeming factor. Hard pass.
