Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition Receives Potential Further Evidence of a May Release
Another site now claims Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition will be releasing on May 29.
You may be thinking to yourself right now, “Hey, DualShockers, didn’t you write about this last week?” at which point I would first thank you for reading our article, and second tell you that yes we did. But now, there is another report popping up on a Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition May release.
This time, the potential leaked release date comes from the Swedish website, spelbutiken.se. This latest website shares the May 29 date that Danish site, Cool Shop, listed last week. We can’t say for sure just yet whether this is indeed the release date yet. It is possible that the Swedish website only has it listed as such due to the reported date from Cool Shop.
Even though the Nintendo Switch is hardly lacking in the RPG department, Xenoblade Chronicles is one of the more anticipated titles that we know about coming to the platform this year. We’ve already been treated to the updated visuals that set this port apart from the Wii and New 3DS versions. Outside of that though, there are still a lot of unknowns with this remaster. What makes it the Definitive Edition? Is it a remake or more of a remaster?
Nearly a decade will separate the release of the Definitive Edition and the original Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii. In that time, two sequels have been released under the Xenoblade name, each carrying their own refinements to the franchise. I look forward to seeing just how much of that refinement finds its way into this game.
I would imagine that whenever we get Nintendo’s usual big new-year Direct, we will get a firm release date for Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition.
