Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Will Not Have Exclusive 3DS Features

Not so definitive, I guess.

This May, we will get a chance to revisit the first Xenoblade Chronicles with the Definitive Edition release on the Switch. The game ended up being an unexpected launch pad for the RPG franchise, despite almost never leaving Japanese shores with its original Wii release. This edition will feature redone graphics, music and a new epilogue. However, despite having ‘definitive’ in the name, it actually be missing some minor features.

Before this remaster, there was another major re-release of the title on the New Nintendo 3DS. That game actually managed to shrink the open world RPG onto Nintendo’s previous handheld and had a few excluisve features. You could get tokens, via both doing in-game achievements as well as scanning amiibos, that allowed you to get 3D models to examine as well as sound tests. As spotted and translated by Twitter user Luxin (which you can see below) tucked away on the Japanese site, it’s confirmed those features will not be in the Switch release. While they are by no means major additions, it is a bit odd.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition will release only on Nintendo Switch May 29th.
