Today Nintendo showcased a large batch of gameplay of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 during a livestream from Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.

The livestream showcased almost fifty minutes of the game, providing a good glimpse on environments, combat, quests and characters.

We get to hear about the relationship between drivers and blades, and we see part of the game’s localization via dialogue scenes.

Among the areas shown there is Eight-Rock Skip, Bluestop Ditch, Fairlaine Wells, Fairlaine Central Pools, Pelza’s Sluice, Drillbone Bridge, Minnet Terrace, Stone Gate Ruins, Gwenith Paddies,  and a few locations within the large city of Fonsa Myma: Fonsa Myma Gate, the Entertainment District, the Commercial District, Torika Alley and Sevind Palace Plaza.

The game will release in the west this Holiday season, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. At the moment there is no firm release date yet, but it should come soon.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
