Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Is $10 Off At Amazon In Release Week Deal

Just days before its release on Nintendo Switch, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is on sale for a nice price at Amazon, but you better hurry.


Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, an updated version of one of the best RPGs for the Wii, releases on Nintendo Switch this Friday, May 29. Whether you're planning on diving in for the first time or revisiting the modern classic in its updated form, you should take a look at the pre-order deal at Amazon. Right now, you can pre-order Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition for $49.94, which is a savings of $10.

This is the same price Walmart was selling the Definitive Edition for, but Walmart is now only offering this price in stores. Amazon already sold out of its Xenoblade pre-orders at this price earlier this week, so there's a good chance this offer won't be available for long. If you already placed your pre-order at Amazon at the full $60 price, you'll get the discount thanks to Amazon's pre-order price guarantee.

In addition to enhanced visuals, updated controls, remixed music, and general quality-of-life improvements across the board, the Switch version adds a new epilogue dubbed Future Connected that builds onto the story of the lengthy role-playing game.

The new version earned a 9/10 in GameSpot's Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition review for its rewarding combat system, diverse and gorgeous world, fantastic soundtrack, and more. "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," wrote critic Jake Dekker.

Xenoblade Chronicles originally released on Wii in 2010, and a New 3DS exclusive port, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, followed in 2015. With the release of the updated Switch version, three of the four Xenoblade experiences are now available on Switch: Xenoblade, Xenoblade 2, and Torna - The Golden Country (a large prequel expansion). Here's to hoping the Wii U's Xenoblade Chronicles X is ported to Switch in the future, too.
