My Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition (Nintendo Switch) Impressions

Dunban wielding the Monado Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Nintendo Switch

I originally ignored Xenoblade Chronicles back when it came out on the Nintendo Wii. It was only because of Super Smash Bros. that I knew the series really existed. I bought a copy last year and I finally got around to playing it.

I knew the hero of the story would be Shulk because of Super Smash Bros. I was a little surprised that you don’t start out with his Monado sword because it’s not truly his.

The open-world of the game is humongous. I really don’t think I could explore every nook and cranny of the game.

The actual villains of the game are robots named mechon. And nothing but the monado sword can technically hurt them. Which makes things a pain when it comes to combat.

The mechon bosses aren’t much better. I eventually had to set the game to casual mode. The combat system is unique but it’s a little tricky sometimes. Or downright ridiculous.

I’ve been enjoying the hours I spent in it so far, but like many JRPGs, I don’t know if I’ll stick around to finish it.
