Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition reviewed by Travis Northup on Nintendo Switch.
“For a story where controlling the future is a critical plot device, it’s pretty ironic that Xenoblade Chronicles has never managed to get its timing right until now. After this enormous JRPG’s unfortunate 2012 debut in the final days of the Wii’s lifecycle and a low-res port to the 3DS that didn’t do it justice, at long last it can shine on a console in its prime – and the result is an improvement as massive as the titan Bionis itself. And that’s before we even get into any of the Definitive Edition’s numerous improvements.”
