Review: Xenoblade Chronicles – Definitive Edition is polished to perfection on Switch

A love letter to one of the best JRPGs of the last 20 years

Executive director

Key Credits
Genki Yokota (Director), Koh Kojima (Director)

Still the best of Monolith Soft’s three Xenoblade games, tweaked and polished to perfection.

  • An epic world suited to the couch and the bus.
  • Heaps of tweaks make it smoother to play.
  • A legendary soundtrack sounds even better.
  • Still looks a little soft in handheld mode.
5 / 5
