During Nintendo’s E3 2017 Spotlight, we were treated to a new trailer (embedded below) of Monolith Soft’s next JRPG Xenoblade Chronicles 2. In this next installment of the much-loved, we are tasked to “explore an endless ocean of clouds, where the last remnants of civilization live on the backs of colossal beasts called Titans.” The game will follow the story of “Rex and his new friend, Pyra, a mysterious being known as a Blade who grants him tremendous power.”

Nintendo’s E3 website has also provided more information about what to expect in Monolith Soft’s new epic adventure.


  • Explore colossal beasts called Titans, the homes of different civilizations, offering expansive regions to discover.
  • Form powerful bonds with Blades, unique beings granting tremendous power to their users, called Drivers.
  • Features a deep battle system that builds on triumphs of the Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles X games.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is currently slated for release for Holiday 2017 for the Nintendo Switch.
