Nintendo decided to end its recent Nintendo Direct with a huge announcement for Xenoblade fans. The original Xenoblade Chronicles will be getting a remake for the Nintendo Switch. Although details are scarce, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is set to be released sometime in 2020.
The upcoming remaster was revealed with a trailer, which displayed several areas of the game and protagonist Shulk using his signature sword. This announcement comes as a huge surprise and is welcomed by fans as it’s quite to difficult to play the original game now as it was released on the Wii.
Xenoblade Chronicles was originally developed by Monolith Software and was released in 2010 in Japan and 2012 in North America, and was well-received despite being criticised for its graphics. This will be the second time that Xenoblade Chronicles is remastered as it was redone for the Nintendo 3DS back in 2015.
The game spawned two sequels; Xenoblade Chronicles X for the Wii U and then Xenoblade Chronicles 2 in 2017 for the Nintendo Switch, which were also pretty successful.
Fans of the series will be excited to see that a remaster is due to come out soon, especially those who are only familiar with the most recent installment in the series. Hopefully, Xenoblade Chronicles X will also get a remaster soon.
