Today, Nintendo announced Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country story expansion during Nintendo’s E3 2018 Direct. The game will be releasing for Switch in September 2018.

The trailer shows us characters traveling the world of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but this expansion brings us to the background of major antagonist, Jin, and the history of his birthplace, Torna. Dubbed “the Golden Country”, we will get a chance to see what Torna once was and what it has become, perhaps adding some insight into some of the major villains’ motivations.

We can only expect to see more of Jin’s history and that of his country coming to this particular expansion, which will be the last listed expansion on the game’s site. If you have the expansion pass, you will be getting the expansion as it comes out; additionally, you can also purchase the story content separately if you so wish.

The game expansion will be releasing Switch sometime in September of this year, though you can pick up Xenoblade Chronicles 2 right now for the Switch if you so choose.
