Nintendo fans that have attended Gamescom this week have been in for a treat as there’s a number of highly sought after games for them to play. Naturally a variety of gaming publications have attended too so we can expect plenty of impressions of the games that they have had time to play, and there’s been many. IGN had a chance to play a demo for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 which is due to be released this fall on the Nintendo Switch and have come away from the experience with a reasonably positive preview, which you can read here. Here’s an extract from it:
I left Xenoblade’s world a little bit bewildered, a little bit overwhelmed, but ultimately completely absorbed in its wonder and promise. I’ve got much to learn about the combat system and mastering the rhythm of its battles, and while it all feels a little daunting, the world here is a beautiful one and I’m excited to train my party (and myself) to be strong enough and smart enough to conquer it. If Monolith Soft sticks to their promise of launching the game by the end of 2017, we’ll all get to explore it soon.
