Nintendo of Japan have revealed Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition will allow players to change the level of their characters, and support a casual mode.
The news comes via the Nintendo of Japan Twitter account [1, 2, 3]. Across the tweets, it is revealed the game will feature an “Advance Setting,” allowing players to stockpile their EXP, and use it to level-up and level-down characters.
This allows players to adjust the challenge as needed, whether they want an easier or harder challenge. There is also a casual mode that makes fights easier. Whether this changes damage outputs or alters other elements of gameplay is unknown.
You can find the rundown (via Nintendo) below.
