Xenoblade Chronicles 2

The version 1.3.0 update for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will launch in mid-February and add a “New Game Plus” mode called “Advanced New Game Mode,” as well as fix a big that surfaced in the version 1.2.0 update, Monolith Soft director Tetsuya Takahashi said in a new production note.

Here is the full message from Takahashi:

In the version 1.2.0 update, there is a bug in certain instances during and after Chapter 7 where a Blade linked with a specific Driver disappears from the Blade List (it only disappears from the list, the Blade itself does not disappear).

This is a bug that occurred during the process of adding the second playthrough element called “Advanced New Game Mode,” which will be implemented in the version 1.3.0 update planned for mid-February.

We apologize for the inconvenience for the about half a month that remains, but we are working hard on the development of the update, so please give us your patience.

More information regarding the specific updated content of version 1.3.0 will be shared leading up to its release.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is available now for Switch.
