The official Japanese website for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has been updated with a bunch of new screens that show off the many gorgeous locations in the game. Hit up the gallery above to see the beautiful vistas that await, and they happen to look better than ever as well!

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition will feature over 90 remastered tracks

Making a fantastic soundtrack even better

We already knew that Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition was going to include some remastered tracks, but it seems MonolithSoft really went all-out. According to a new tweet from Nintendo, players can expect to enjoy 90+ songs in remastered glory. We don't have a list of the titles, but one would imagine it'll be the bulk of the soundtrack!

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition will not include the extra features found in Xenoblade Chronicles 3D

Definitive, but not complete

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition may be labeled as 'definitive,' but it's not going to include some of the content that was found in Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, the port that made its way to the New 3DS. In particular, Definitive Edition will lack the Collection Mode found in the New 3DS version, as well as the amiibo features. It seems Nintendo and Monolith Soft are aiming to make this the Definitive Edition of the Wii original, and not the New 3DS port.

French launch shipments for Xenoblade Chronicles: Limited Edition and Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics revealed

Should be enough to go around

For those who don't know, France is quite a big region for Nintendo. The Big N's hardware and software always does well in the region, so they get some decent support when it comes to shipment figures. That's going to be the case for a pair of upcoming Switch titles.

When it comes to Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, France will see 80k copies at launch, but just 6k units of the Collector's Set. As for Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics, Nintendo is shipping 100k to France at launch.
