Switch Exclusive Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Gets Screenshots and Video: Shows Cute Blade and More

Monolith Soft shows more of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for Nintendo Switch, including a new and cute rare blade, and dynamic cutscenes.

October 18, 2017

Monilith Soft released a few more screenshots, artwork and a video of its upcoming JRPG Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

First of all, we meet a new rare blade. Her name is Raiko, obviously from the fact that her powers are electricity based (“Rai” means lightning). She was designed by Asato Mizu and she is voiced by Himika Akaneya. She is definitely cute and comes with a cheerful personality.

Blades are characters that form a symbiotic relationship with the protagonists, named Drivers, and can be both common (with random looks, weapon, and name), and rare, which are named and unique.

We also see the driver named Nia during a cutscene, showing how time progresses dynamically, so even event scenes can be showcased in different conditions, during the day or at night.


You can enjoy the video, art, and screenshots just below, courtesy of Monolith Soft’s official Twitter account.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will launch worldwide exclusively for Nintendo Switch on December 1st.

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.
