Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Is Coming to Save the Holiday RPG Season

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Is Coming to Save the Holiday RPG Season

Yes, we'll see the new Xenoblade game this year.

Recently on Axe of the Blood God, Kat and I wondered if there'd be any big RPG releases for the 2017 holiday season. Answer: Yes! Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is coming to the Nintendo Switch in time for Christmas.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is also making a return to a character-driven fantasy setting, leaving behind the sci-fi themes in Xenoblade Chronicles X. You take the role of another lovable Shulk-like hero, there's a giant tree, and of course there's a giant bad-ass energy blade in the tradition of the Monado.
