First announced at the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 in January, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is finally ready for release: it will be available this very Friday worldwide. Since the reveal, Nintendo has shown a fair bit of the game at various events (including E3 and Nintendo Direct) and via regular trailers, with a clear focus on gameplay.
But there’s one aspect of the game we haven’t seen too much of, most likely due to the potential spoilers: the story. And that’s precisely what the latest trailer for the game, revealed today, is all about.
But before you go and click that play button, a little piece of advice: the trailer does include elements that could be considered spoilers by some. Of course, there’s nothing to really worry about, as this trailer only shows the tip of the iceberg, but if you’re particularly sensitive to spoilers, you might want to refrain from watching it!
Here’s the story trailer for Xenolade Chronicles 2, featuring the Japanese voice track:
Speaking of voice tracks, here’s a different version of the Character Trailer for the game, this time with the English voices:
Don’t forget that a free Japanese voice pack will be available at launch, so if you prefer the Japanese voices over the English ones, you will be able to play with them if you prefer. Of course, if you’re fine with the English voices, you have nothing to do, let alone download!
Next, a quick note about the music: earlier today, the latest Production Notes was posted on the official website in Japan. This one is from Yasunori Mitsuda, the main composer, as you’d expect, it’s all about the music. Click here to check it out, and listen to one of the vocal tracks featuring ANUNA!
Finally, here’s some more screenshots for the game, from the Japanese version:
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Switch) comes out on December 1st, worldwide.
