Video: GameXplain Analyses Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Nintendo Switch Trailer

Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which was announced in the Nintendo’s presentation not too long ago, has had the GameXplain treatment. The new locations, characters and what they’re wearing amongst other details are discussed. They pick apart the trailer and drum up theories about what is shown during the trailer. Check out their video below:

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is currently slated for a rather vague release window of 2017 for the Nintendo Switch.



  1. I CANNOT WAIT for this game!! I really was kinda disappointed that X wasn’t a direct sequel to the original Xenoblade, and that it didn’t have as much of a focus on story, or as good of a soundtrack. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 seems to be sticking close to the original in all those aspects, so I’m so excited! Wouldn’t be surprised if it gets pushed back to 2018 tho, atleast oustide of Japan. Tho Monolith soft got a huge budget raise and hired a ton more staff after X, so maybe it is possible.

    1. You may not need it. Nothing on XC2 shows tide conections to XC, there is literally nothing direct related to XC on XC2 trailer. It is probably a new game set in the same universe as XC, however several years have passed.

  2. Oh, the hype is real! I was so disappointed with X because the music was too random, no relationships, bareboned plot, no main character. But the gameplay was better than Chronicles, so if they’re combining what was good about both games, this could turn out to be one hell of a game. :)

  3. If BotW doesn’t include HD Rumble in some capacity & if online on Switch is solely tied to needing a fucking smartphone, the only game I see myself getting on it in the first year is this game. Then again, it could end up like XCX where we have to wait 2 or 3 years into the console’s life span to get it. There is always Super Mario Odyssey. Well on March 3rd, I’ll be sure to keep a close eye on things online to see if BotW Switch has HD Rumble. If it does, sweet & I’ll pick up my Switch from GameStop either later that day, if I can find this info out before 12 pm, or the next day.

    1. If not, GameStop can keep the Switch to sell it to some other poor sucker buying day 1, because I won’t be that sucker if I don’t have HD Rumble on BotW, & I’ll pick my 50 bucks back up the next time I do go to GameStop. I’ll pick a Switch up another time… if I fucking even feel like buying a Nintendo product again for awhile after March 4th.

  4. I loved the first one. And X. However, I think it is great they are departing from Xs style, and returning/improving on Xenoblade Chronicles style.
