Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Screenshots and Character Renders

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition.

Nintendo of Japan have released screenshots of Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, showing off the new character models and environments.

The screenshots of the upcoming JRPG were posted from the Nintendo of Japan Twitter account since April 27th. These include new looks at the party characters; Shulk, Reyn, Fiora, Sharla, Dunban, Melia, and Riki.

You can find all those screenshots below.

In addition, Nintendo of Japan shared screenshots of the environments.

The screenshots show how the game has been remade from the ground up, which in turn could open the door for changes to elements some fans disliked in the original game.

You can find the rundown (via Nintendo) below.

Join the fight between man and machine in the definitive edition of this critically-acclaimed RPG

Discover the origins of Shulk as he and his companions clash against a seemingly-unstoppable mechanical menace. Wield a future-seeing blade, chain together attacks, and carefully position your party members in strategic, real-time combat as you journey across a massive world.

During an attack from the mechanical invaders known as the Mechon, Shulk discovers that he can tap into the full power of a mysterious blade known as the Monado. With the mighty Monado in hand, Shulk sets out to defeat the Mechon once and for all.

In addition to the Mechon, you’ll run into wildlife that ranges from docile to deadly. Keep an eye on what attracts monsters’ attention to avoid unwanted conflict…or try your hand at bringing down an ultra-powerful Unique Monster.

Upgrade your party as you progress through the adventure by selecting equipment, enhancing weapon skills, and using benefit-granting gems. Put your dependable companions to work by filling the party gauge to trigger a Chain Attack and attack enemies in quick succession!

In case you missed it, Nintendo of Australia confirmed that players will be able to switch between the original and remastered soundtracks.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition launches May 29th for Nintendo Switch.
