Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is coming to the Switch

Xenoblade Chronicles is a Japanese role-playing game that debuted as an exclusive to the Wii back in 2010, with a re-release for the New Nintendo 3DS in 2015. The title earned critical acclaim, and spawned a couple of successors - Xenoblade Chronicles X on the Wii U, and more recently, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on the Switch. If you missed the original adventure, now there's good news for you, too.

Closing its Direct presentation, Nintendo showcased a teaser trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. The game looks to be similar to the original, albeit with improvements in graphics quality you'd expect on a newer system.

Unlike the sequel that launched on the Nintendo Switch in 2017, the original Xenoblade Chronicles adopted a less cartoony art style, opting for a more realistic one. The game follows the story of Shulk as he attempts to take hold of a legendary weapon called Monado, which will allow him to fight off the Mechon army.

Nintendo didn't give much in the way of details as to what will be different in the Definitive Edition of the game. However, it did provide a timeframe for its release, which is happening sometime next year.
