While Nintendo has been busy touting Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey as the next great games for the Switch, it’s easy to forget the consolemaker is also hard at work on a new title in the massively popular Xenoblade franchise… Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is an RPG that follows a young boy named Rex and his companion, a living sword known as Pyra, as they search for the paradise of Elysium. You can get a glimpse of their adventure in the new E3 2017 trailer embedded above:
Explore an endless ocean of clouds, where the last remnants of civilization live on the backs of colossal beasts called Titans. Experience the story of Rex and his new friend, Pyra, a mysterious being known as a Blade who grants him tremendous power. Together, search for Pyra’s long lost home Elysium, the ultimate paradise for all of humanity.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 doesn’t have a confirmed launch date, but it’s currently scheduled to be released for the Switch sometime this Fall.
