Yes, an actual sequel to the Wii original.
Nintendo and Monolith Soft confirmed that Xenoblade 2 will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Yes, Xenoblade 2– as in an actual, full fledged sequel to the original Xenoblade Chronicles. None of the spiritual successor that was Xenoblade Chronicles X– this is a full fledged sequel to the Wii classic.
The game looked to be in an early stage of development, though the gorgeous art style and world design of the original game were on stark display in this trailer. For many, the prospect of a return to Xenoblade‘s style, over the more meandering, open ended stye of Xenoblade X, that entirely de-emphasized storytelling and narrative, two things that the original game was so well known for.
Xenoblade 2 will be available only on Nintendo Switch. We will have more information for you from the Switch event as it comes. Stay tuned.
