It’s time for a better idea of what the original versus Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition comparison might look like, literally, as a round of character-focused screenshots have been released by Nintendo in Japan. The Japanese Twitter account had an array of tweets on April 27, 2020, with each one focused on characters like Shulk, Fiora, and Melia. The goal of each was to briefly remind people who they were, complete with new Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition screenshots and full body renders showing their new looks for the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
First, let’s go through all of the Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition screenshots. Each one offers two pictures of the characters in cutscenes or during actual gameplay. While each hero does appear prominently in their screens, we might also get chances to see how others look in them. For example, Fiora has a screenshot that shows another look at Shulk, while in one of the Riki images we also see the Nopon talking to Reyn and Sharla.
As for the official art, each one is a little better at figuring out the Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition comparisons. After all, these give us a more detailed look at every main character. You can see the greater similarities between the designs and the in-game appearances, with better likenesses and greater resemblances to one another.
The new look is only one of many changes in Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition. When people go through it, they can use the original or remastered soundtrack. It also has a Future Connected epilogue to go through, which takes place a year after the end of the game and doesn’t need to be unlocked if returning players want to start with that storyline. We’ve also seen plenty of screenshots and footage looking at how different characters, enemies, and the world will be this time around.
Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition will come to the Nintendo Switch on May 29, 2020. Xenoblade Chronicles is immediately available on the Nintendo Wii and New Nintendo 3DS.
