The highly anticipated Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has finally received confirmation of a western release, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Sequel to the critically acclaimed Nintendo Wii exclusive, Xenoblade Chronicles, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will launch at a currently unspecified date late in 2017.
Nintendo recently held a financial summary report in which the company stated that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 would be joining Splatoon 2, ARMS and Super Mario Odyssey in the Nintendo Switch’s 2017 release schedule. It had already been confirmed that the videogame would launch this year in Japan, but the confirmation that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will also arrive in North America and Europe within 2017 is likely to have series fans very excited.
Despite being a sequel, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will feature a new character searching for the world of Elysium. Announced back in January 2017, little else is currently known about the storyline of Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
