Step up as a hero!

Xenoblade Chronicles puts you in the role of Shulk and his friends, as they travel across their world to stop the evil Mechons from invading and causing destruction. Shulk gains use of the Monado, a powerful and mysterious sword which grants the user all kinds of powerful abilities.

Enjoy breathtaking scenery remade in HD

Xenoblade Chronicles is set on the Bionis, an enormous dead titan the size of a planet, which is filled with lush landscapes and a multitude of creatures. Thanks to the remade graphics made possible due to the Switch's upgraded hardware, even fans of the original will be able to experience this world as if it were the first time.

Learn the intricate combat system

Party Gauge.png
Xenoblade Chronicles is an RPG that boasts a unique combat system that is fought in realtime, much like an MMO. Each character has a unique role in combat, and characters can use Arts, which are unique skills with varying battle effects. However, using too many Arts in succession raises your Aggro, which will make you the target of your enemy's attacks. Using a skillful combination of Arts, party composition, and Chain Attacks are the key to victory!
