Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Direct Coming November 7

What could be the last Direct of 2017 offers a look at the Switch's next big game.

Nintendo announced today that there will be a new Nintendo Direct airing on November 7, 2017 at 6AM PT and 9AM ET. The Direct will focus on Xenoblade Chronicles 2, the last major Nintendo release for the Switch in 2017. Xenoblade Chronicles is scheduled for release on December 1, 2017.

"Lost in a sea of clouds, entire civilizations rest on the backs of colossal beasts known as Titans. As the Titans march toward death, unlikely heroes arise: a young scavenger named Rex and a living weapon called Pyra. Can they find the fabled paradise of Elysium in time to save what’s left of humanity?" explain Nintendo in its synopsis of the game.

Will Xenoblade Chronicles 2 live up to its pedigree and close out a great year for Nintendo?
