While Nintendo Direct presentations tend to have many of the same beats, each region’s can have some of its own, exclusive announcements. For example, the Japanese March 2020 Nintendo Direct Mini included a Shiren the Wanderer Switch port reveal. Likewise, the one for Europe revealed a different Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition collector’s edition. In that region, there’s a larger Collector’s Set than the one being offered in North America.
The Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition Collector’s Set announcement ended up making that portion of the Nintendo Direct Mini longer in Europe. It began by looking at the Steelbook case that has the Bionis and Mechonis on it. A Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition Sound Selection vinyl record gives people a means of listening to the game’s soundtrack, though there’s also a card with music download code for people as well. A poster and the 256-page Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Works art book are also in the box.
You can see the special edition starting at the four minute mark in the European Nintendo Direct Mini.
As a reminder, the North American version only comes with a copy of the game and the art book.
Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition will come to the Nintendo Switch on May 29, 2020. Xenoblade Chronicles is immediately available for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U.
