    1. There’s a lot more then this underwhelming snippet. This is more like a small part of a large DLC that is being released in portions.


      1. I loved X, except from the combatsystem xP I gave up on XC1 after a few bosses because of the combat xP Haven’t played XC2 yet, and from the sound of this article, it can wait.


  1. The fact that we’re getting more than just one new Rare Blade is exciting but I’m VERY interested in the “– make some “new friends” along the way” point for the Challenge Battle Mode. Does that mean we’ll be getting new party members?


    1. Possibly characters from the other games? Team up with Shulk or even someone real old school from Xenosaga/Gears. We already have KOS MOS as a Blade so maybe someone like Shion Uzuki?

      I’m guessing the Challenge Battle Mode will be seperate from the main story so lore wouldn’t be a huge issue.


  2. Fantastic game with great combat and so many hours of enjoyable gameplay even without these updates. I love the game so getting little updates along the way, culminating in a new story mode in autumn, make the dlc totally worth it for me.
