Nintendo shares Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition/Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Switch Online Game Voucher print ad in Japan

Feeling double

Nintendo is back with yet another reminder that the Switch Online Game Voucher service is alive and well in Japan. This time around, Nintendo has put together a print ad for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition/Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which would certainly be one hell of a one-two punch to use your vouchers on. I'm sure there are still some people out there holding onto their vouchers for the perfect game combo, and this could be it!

Preorders for Good Smile's second run of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Pyra and Mytha figures now live

Which will you choose?

What we didn't know was when the preorders would open, but today that day has come. Play-Asia is taking orders on both figurines, which you can grab here and here.

A truly heartwarming story

Skye Bennett provided the voice for both Pyra and Mythra in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and she reprised her role as Pyra for a special fan.

Twitter user ATGAMER777 has been feeling quite down lately, and was sorely in need of some inspiration. ATGAMER777 is a big fan of Pyra, which is why a friend secretly reached out to Skye to have a special message recorded. You can hear the full message in the tweet above.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 fan puts clocks in 4,320 hours of playtime

That would be 6 months!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 offers up hours and hours of content for players to enjoy, all set across a very expansive game world. It's very easy to put in hundreds of hours on the game, but how about a few thousand? That's what one Japanese player has done, clocking in at 4,320 hours so far. That would be 6 months straight if you never stopped playing!

The Japanese superfan points out that he had some sort of health issue that kept him rather confined to his home, and lead to him playing a lot of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. At least it helped him pass the time!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 at 1.73 million sold worldwide as of March 2019

A strong reception

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 turned out to be a bigger hit than Nintendo and Monolith Soft were expecting. The game has done quite well for itself, moving 1.73 million units worldwide as of March 2019. This information was confirmed by Monolith Soft’s Tetsuya Takahashi in an interview shared today.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 character designer sends out cryptic tweet about VR

Saito Masatsugu, character designer for Xenoblade Chronicles 2, is stirring up some speculation with the above tweet. Both The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are getting updates to support Nintendo Labo VR, but could other games see the same? With Masatsugu tweeting out a very simple 'VR,' fans are wondering if something is in the works, or it's just the hopes of Masatsugu. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 in VR would certainly be a sight to behold, so I'm definitely hoping there's more to this tweet than just riling up fans.
