During today’s Nintendo Direct Mini (March 26, 2020), the May 29 release date was finally confirmed. The Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition is a modern remake of the Nintendo Wii JRPG that features enhanced graphics and performance. Additionally, some of the music has been rerecorded to improve some of the quality of the game’s music tracks.

It was also announced a new epilogue called Xenoblade Chronicles Future Connected will bring a new story and end the main game. This will give both newcomers and Xenoblade fans something new to look forward to. How it will tie up the main game is unknown, but you will play as Shulk, the main protagonist in Xenoblade Chronicles.

The Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition launch date has been rumored since the beginning of the year. Back in January, a Danish site called Cool Shop listed the May 29 date. Just a week after that, a Swedish site also shared the same date. In February, the RPG got its classification in Korea, potentially hinting at an announcement.

As mentioned, Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition will launch on May 29 for the Nintendo Switch. It originally launched back in 2012 for the Wii. A 3DS port was also released back in 2015. So, if you really want to play Xenoblade Chronicles now, the Wii and 3DS versions are currently available.

In case you missed it, the Nintendo Direct Mini featured a slew of announcements for the Nintendo Switch. This includes a demo for Bravely Default 2, details on Pokemon Sword and Shield‘s expansion pass, the Panzer Dragoon remake, a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character, and much more.
