Digital Foundry has delivered their verdict for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch, performing a tech analysis of Monolith Soft’s expansive RPG on the portable home console.

This has confirmed that the game’s resolution is between 504p to 720p when playing docked in TV Mode, and between 378p to 540p in Handheld Mode. While it holds a higher resolution more often than Xenoblade Chronicles 2, many had hoped that it would perform better than this.

In Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, after taking hold of an ancient sword that grants its wielder foresight, young hero Shulk and his childhood friend Reyn set out to destroy the Mechon that attacked their colony.

That revenge mission saw the expansive RPG receive critical praise for its seamless exploration, engrossing story and innovative combat when it first released on Wii back in 2011.

This remake from developer Monolith Soft comes to Nintendo Switch with a new epilogue story, Xenoblade Chronicles: Future Connected, that returning players can experience straight away.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 29th May 2020.
