See How Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Holds Up Against The Original Wii Game



Nintendo World Report has put together a side-by-side comparison of Xenoblade Chronicles 3D for the New 3DS and the original version of Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii. The footage scenes that were in the latest U.S. trailer for the game.


The most notable difference between the two versions is that the lighting in certain scenes is paler on the New Nintendo 3DS. Beyond that, it’s fairly impressive that Monster Games managed to port Xenoblade down to a portable console, given just how large the game is.


Xenoblade Chronicles 3D will be released on April 10th in North America and April 2nd in Europe.
