Xenoblade Chronicles 3D - Box Art

A recent video uploaded by Nintendo World Report TV shows Xenoblade Chronicles 3D in a side-by-side comparison with the original Wii version of the game.

In a testament to the hardware of the New 3DS, the new version looks just as good, and at times even better than the original. According to a note in the video description, the lighting in the cutscenes of the New 3DS version is affected by the real-time day-night cycle, meaning that it changes depending on what time of day they occur.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D will be released on April 10 in North America exclusively on the New 3DS. The game is available for pre-order on Amazon.
