Believe it or not, this year’s first Nintendo Direct took place nearly a month ago already. And while it was not a full presentation that we associate with the online show, it is still a Direct nonetheless. Upon some of the big reveals that came our way at the time, on rock off our chests happened to be the official release date for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition which will be arriving this coming May.
When announcing that the title is only a few short weeks away, Nintendo also disclosed that the game will be receiving a epilogue following the initial conclusion of the storyline. Dubbed Future Connected, the additional plot will provide one more adventure between Shulk and Melia.
But according to a new announcement that broke out recently this week, Nintendo shared some interesting new features for the game. The company’s Australian Twitter account disclosed that players returning can indulge in either the original 2010 soundtrack or the rerecorded score for the remastered game. However, the post from the account has been deleted as of writing.
“Kick back and enjoy the re-recorded Colony 9 theme from #XenobladeChronicles: Definitive Edition. Choose from either the original or remastered soundtrack when your adventure starts 29 May,” the now-deleted tweet read.
It so happens that Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is intertwined with a slew of rumors that have proven to be legitimate. The claims made in November list games like the May-scheduled rematster, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, and Tokyo Mirage Session #FE Encore to arrive in the first half of the year prior to their respected announcements.
What makes this even more plausible to be accurate is that known leaker @New_WabiSabi on Twitter reaffirmed on the claims by stating that the previously mentioned Metroid Fusion successor and Paper Mario 64 claims are also in the works. You can read the full report by heading here.
