There has been very few information regarding Xenoblade Chronicles II that Nintendo announced would be released later this year. In spite of this, there have been some new updates regarding the game, which seemingly confirm its launch window.
Delays in the video game industry are nothing new nowadays, especially for large-scale projects. There needs to be a certain amount of time and effort to craft a digital masterpiece that contains very few bugs. Due to time restrictions, there are times when rushed games get released which include poor performance and bad gameplay.
Similarly, fans would usually worry about a delay if developers refuse to share new information about the game - especially as it nears the supposed release date. This does not seem to be the case for the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles II as new updates have recently surfaced.
My Nintendo News reports that Chrono Trigger composer Yasunori Mitsuda tweeted that he is recording the sequel's soundtrack. It is worth noting that he has worked on the series in the past so it is fitting to see him return. Mitsuda ended his tweet claiming that he will do his best along with a smiley face.
On the other hand, Nintendo UK website has also recently confirmed that Xenoblade and Fire Emblem Warriors are still releasing later this year, as per GameTransfers. With this in mind, it still seems like both games will be arriving very late at the end of the year. However, there is still no new information regarding plot or gameplay details.
Xenoblade Chronicles II will be a direct sequel to the first game, which was originally released on the Wii before getting ported to the New Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo made the official announcement during the Nintendo Switch presentation in back in January. For now, fans will have to wait for further information regarding the upcoming title.
