The Australian Classification Board (ACB) has today issued a rating for Xenoblade Chronicles 2, giving hope that Monolith Soft’s RPG is still on track for release in Winter 2017.
That saw the government body classify the Nintendo Switch exclusive with a Mature (M) rating, meaning that: “Films and computer games classified M (Mature) contain content of a moderate impact and are recommended for teenagers aged 15 years and over.”
For comparison’s sake, that is the same classification that was awarded to Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D on New Nintendo 3DS, and Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U, with the Australian Classification Board’s consumer advice pointing to “mature themes and violence” as well as “online interactivity.”
Your adventure in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will trace the story of Rex and his new friend, Pyra, a mysterious being known as a Blade that will grant him tremendous power. Together, you will search for Pyra’s long lost home Elysium, believed to be the ultimate paradise for all of humanity.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Winter 2017.
