Were you patiently waiting for something new about Xenoblade Chronicles 2? Well, Nintendo did bring the goods today, during the Nintendo Spotlight, when a brand new trailer was revealed.

Without further ado, here’s the E3 2017 trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (English + Japanese versions, but unfortunately, only English voices will be available in the western version)

Search for the ultimate paradise, Elysium, with your companion, Pyra.

Explore an endless ocean of clouds, where the last remnants of civilization live on the backs of colossal beasts called Titans. Experience the story of Rex and his new friend, Pyra, a mysterious being known as a Blade who grants him tremendous power. Together, search for Pyra’s long lost home Elysium, the ultimate paradise for all of humanity.


  • Explore colossal beasts called Titans, the homes of different civilizations, offering expansive regions to discover. 
  • Form powerful bonds with Blades, unique beings granting tremendous power to their users, called Drivers. 
  • Features a deep battle system that builds on triumphs of the Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles X games. 

One thing to note about Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is that Tetsuya Nomura (from Square-Enix) is a guest chara-designer for something or someone called Torna. Is that a specific race, a major character? We will have to wait and see!
