Xenoblade Definitive Edition New Epilogue is Playable from the Beginning

Xenoblade Definitive Edition won't require you to play through the whole game again to check out its new epilogue content, unlike Persona 5 Royal.

April 15, 2020

Nintendo and Monolith Soft revealed something pretty nice for Xenoblade fans awaiting the Switch’s Definitive Edition. The remaster’s new epilogue will be playable from the start. Meaning if you already beat the game back on Nintendo Wii or New Nintendo 3DS, you won’t have to play through the whole thing again to check out the new story content. This is the kind of feature I wish Persona 5 Royal and all of Atlus’ enhanced versions had. A new scene indicator in P5R would have been great too. Then again, it’s easy to tell the new scenes apart, as they almost all feature Kasumi, Takuto, or Goro. Anyway.


We also learned how the Xenoblade Definitive Edition epilogue will be taking place one year after the ending. Future Connected is the name of the Epilogue. Whatever it’ll be about, I hope it’ll have some cool mecha. It probably will seeing that’s what Tetsuya Takahashi always puts in his stories. Of course, Xenoblade Definitive Edition will also be a great opportunity for those who never played the original.

Xenoblade Definitive Edition is a Nintendo Switch exclusive releasing on May 29.

Besides this, Monolith Soft is also working on a new Zelda game on Switch, probably the Breath of the Wild sequel. The studio works one way or another on many Nintendo games too and recently was on Animal Crossing. Lastly, it’s also working on a new action game.

Monolith Soft celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2019. Some fans are also waiting for new developments regarding Xenosaga but it probably won’t happen anytime soon.
