With the new, standalone expansion for Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Torna~The Golden Country now being live, Monolith Soft has also launched a brand new update for the Switch exclusive RPG to update it with compatibility for the DLC. Update 2.00 is a big one all around, as the version designation suggests, featuring a bunch of changes and improvements across the board that fans and players will undoubtedly appreciate.

The update fixes an issue where in certain quests, players would have to defeat certain enemy types to trigger event scenes. Functionality for The Golden Country, as I mentioned, has also been added to the game’s title screen, as has the functionality for receiving the final set of items that come with the game’s expansion pass. You can see the full patch notes below (as provided by Nintendo).

We also got a brand new piece of art done by main character designer Masatsugu “saitom” Saito, featuring all the characters he designed in one image. It’s a really cool piece, and fans will undoubtedly appreciate it. If your favorite characters are missing from it, however, it’s not favouritism- Xenoblade Chronicles 2 had a lot of artists working on designing characters for it, and Saito’s new piece only includes the ones he personally created (which is still quite a few). You can check it out for yourself below.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2, as well as Torna~The Golden Country are out now on Nintendo Switch.

Version 2.0.0

  • Issues Fixed
    • Fixed an issue occurring in quests where defeating specific enemies was necessary to complete the quest. Following battle with the enemy, this issue caused certain event scenes not to play or to suffer from extended loading, preventing quest progress.

Changes and New Features

  • Functionality has been added to the title screen to make the Expansion Pass story scenario “Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country” playable.
    • Torna – The Golden Country is an additional story that takes place 500 years prior to the events of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Play as Jin—Rex’s main adversary and leader of the mystery-shrouded society of Torna—in a bygone era and uncover the truth about the lost Tornan titan and the origins of the Aegis. Delve into new gameplay mechanics like Vanguard Switch, a tactic that allows you to switch between the front and back lines during a battle, and Community, a feature that lets you deepen your connection with the inhabitants of Alrest.
  • Added functionality for receiving the final round of items associated with the Expansion Pass.
  • Elma’s Overdrive ability is now usable during battle when the auto-battle option is initially set to Enabled, but the player switches to manual controls during battle.
    • Elma is now a blade who can join your party during the “Challenge Battle: Nopondemonium” in the Expansion Pass.

Xenoblade 2 all stars
