Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Definitive Works Edition Back In Stock At GameStop And Best Buy

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition arrives on Nintendo Switch this May with a new epilogue, and it's available to pre-order now.


Nintendo is finally giving its heralded Wii RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles, another go on the Switch, and it's out this week. Initially revealed last September, the Definitive Edition will land on Switch Friday, May 29. Nintendo revealed the release date during a Nintendo Direct Mini that showcased a bunch of previously unannounced Switch games. The Definitive Edition is joined by a new 250-page art book dubbed Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Works that will be bundled with the $80 Definitive Works Set, exclusive to the US. Meanwhile, fans in the UK can grab the Collector's Set, which comes with a few more goodies.

The biggest addition to the Definitive Edition is the brand-new epilogue, Future Connected, which provides some incentive for those who have already played Monolith Soft's grand adventure to grab it again on Switch. The Switch version also includes some quality-of-life improvements, including remixed music, updated controls, and enhanced visuals. Menu screens will be more user-friendly and feature easier-to-read text, too.

Every version of Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is available to pre-order now. You can check out what comes with each edition below and where to buy the game.
