Players who have completed the main campaign can check out a new game plus mode when the update drops. As of right now, we only know that the new mode is coming. Nintendo has yet to give more intricate details as to how it will change up the regular game, but we assume it’ll have some interesting changes, otherwise it really isn’t a new game plus mode. As for what those changes will be, your guess is as good as ours.
In addition, the update will include bug fixes. Specifically, we know it’ll be patching an issue introduced in update 1.2.0 involving a certain driver and blade. Version 1.3.0 will be available in mid-February, Nintendo will also reveal more details about the update sometime soon, likely through a Nintendo Direct broadcast. Also, it’s important to note that this content will be available to everybody, not just those who own the game’s season pass.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is the first big JRPG on the Nintendo Switch and the sequel to 2010’s Xenoblade Chronicles for the original Wii. The game is also the latest entry in the Xeno series of games that started with Xenogears back in 1998. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is available right now, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
