Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Has A Day One Update

Ahead of Xenoblade's release on Switch this week, Nintendo has released a version 1.1.1 update for the game.


Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has arrived on Nintendo Switch, and alongside it, Nintendo has released a 1.1.1 update for the game. The company has yet to share English patch notes, but the update appears to resolve two fairly specific issues concerning the Arts Palette that could arise when using a Chain Attack.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is a remaster of the classic Wii RPG, featuring improved character models, a redesigned UI, and other visual touchups. The game also boasts a new epilogue story called Future Connected, which is available from the outset and takes place a year after the main game. According to game director Tetsuya Takahashi, Future Connected's story is about 10-12 hours long, while those who clear all of its side content can spend upwards of 20 hours with the epilogue.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has been very warmly received by critics, including GameSpot. We gave it a 9/10 in our Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition review, with critic Jake Dekker writing, "Although not every aspect of Xenoblade Chronicles has aged as well as others, Definitive Edition proves that Xenoblade Chronicles is still a fantastic JRPG with an immense amount of strategic depth that's still impressive in 2020. Its bevy of improvements and additions, as well as its fantastic epilogue, make this an adventure worth embarking on a decade later."

The game may be officially out now, but there's still time to take advantage of some Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition deals. The game is $10 off at Walmart, although that offer is only available in-store. You can read more in our Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition pre-order guide.
