South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee has issued a rating for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch.
This would suggest that development on the upcoming remake has been completed and that the game is now being readied for release.
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 Monolith Soft’s expansive RPG receive critical praise for its seamless exploration, engrossing story, and innovative combat when it first released on Wii back in 2011.
Now it will be reborn on the portable home console, with a remake that appears to have been recreated with the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 engine and have previously cut content.
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2020.
