Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition – Details and soundtrack sample for Future Connected, overview trailer, more

Nintendo have opened the remaining sections of the official website for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, sharing some details about the Future Connected epilogue, but also some more gameplay footage.

Lete’s start with the footage:

Next, here’s the story premise for the Future Connected epilogue:

It’s been one year since the final battle. The world is now at peace, all races are working together, and reconstruction is underway. Shulk suggests to Melia that they go and check out Alcamoth, the fallen capital. They hop onboard Junks, a flying vessel, and head to the capital. On the way, they are attacked by an unknown attacker, and they end up crashing on the Bionis’ shoulder.

The Epilogue takes place on the Bionis’ shoulder, a brand new area that was not accessible in the original version of the game. It’s located on the left shoulder of the Bionis, and it basically consists of a floating island of minerals.

Future Connected introduces two characters: two Nopons called Kino and Nene. They may be young, but they are as reliable as adults in battle.

  • Kino: he’s looking for his father. He wants to become a Hero. A bit on the shy side. Just what kind of skill does the ether gun he received from his father grant him?
  • Nene: a mother figure for Kino. Don’t be fooled by her cute appearance: when it comes to battle, she’s a power type!

Just like in the main game, there’s plenty of enemies to be found on the Bionis’ shoulder, including some really powerful ones. However, you need to be careful: Shulk can no longer use his visions.

The Epilogue will feature a brand new enemy called Kiri no Kemono (lit. Beasts of Fog) in Japanese. Not only are they quite powerful, but their aura can also attract nearby enemies, and force them to attack Shulk and co..

Finally, you will get to meet the Nopongers on the Bionis’ shoulder: they’re a team of Nopon adventurers, scattered all over the place. If you complete their requests, you will befriend them, and they will then assist you in battle with some special moves. There’s even some special collaboration moves with Shulk!

Wondering what the battle theme is like in Future Connected? The latest soundtrack sample added to the official website is for a track called Tatakai no Koku (lit. Battle Time):
