Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is a massive Japanese role-playing game, we noted as much in our praiseworthy review of the game. Fans are still discovering things in the game, the latest is a secret command instantly kills you.
The secret command will instantly kill you, and works during conversations, while you’re in the air, and so on. It was discovered by Japanese Twitter user Kougensenka, (via YouTuber Gregtendo 64, DigiDriver).
You have to input the following buttons together: L + ZL + ZR + X + Down, for five seconds. That’s it. Here’s a screenshot:
A flash of light comes, a beam of light shoots out, the party member falls down, and then they die. There’s a sound effect to somewhat note this self-termination happened, too.
Hilariously, immediately following our test – the other party members started to banter like nothing happened. Oh sweet, sweet release.
Due to the nature of this effect, it’s not quite clear if this was an intentional secret code put in by a developer at Monolith Soft, or if this is a glitch.
Considering the fact that there’s a sound effect to complement the apparent suicide, we’re learning towards the former.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is now available for the Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough review for the game here (we highly recommend it!).
