Xenoblade Chronicles X New

The release date of Xenoblade Chronicles X is fast approaching, and there was some new information shown during today’s Nintendo Direct. First, those who plan on buying the physical version of Xenoblade Chronicles X should know that four download packs that help the game run smoothly are available on the Nintendo eShop today, which total around 10GB in size. These are entitled the Basic Pack, Enemy Pack, Player Pack, and Skell Pack. Of these, Nintendo strongly recommends that anyone with the physical version of Xenoblade Chronicles X downloads the Basic Pack.

If you plan on buying the eShop version of Xenoblade Chronicles X, you’re in luck! The game is available for pre-order and pre-load on the eShop today as well.

In addition, Nintendo also revealed an instructional web series called the Xenoblade Chronicles X Survival Guide, which will give insight on the game’s world and introduce players to the game and its combat system. Xenoblade Chronicles X Survival Guide will have videos released up until December 4, which is the game’s launch date.

Will joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign soon after news broke of that infamous French interview about Xenoblade. Subsequently, he got actively involved and became a staff member in July/August 2011. He is currently the head of the Japanese translation team, and loves to play, discuss, debate and learn more about games. Will gravitates towards unconventional action games and RPGs, but plays pretty much anything except Madden. He is also currently attending college, honing his Japanese skills and preparing for medical school. (Coincidentally, Trauma Center is one of his favorite game series of all time.)
