It’s absolutely no secret that I am a huge fan of JRPGs. When the original Xenoblade Chronicles released on Wii, and later on 3DS, I billed it as my favourite games of those years on their prospective consoles. The beautiful worlds, fantastic characters, and wonderful combat system sold me from almost the moment I started playing. So, when a second Chronicles game was announced for Switch I thought that my Christmas had come early. Little did I know that it most definitely had come early, with Xenoblade Chronicles 2 billed for December this year. However, now that I’ve had a significant amount of time with the game, how does it fare both as a game and versus the legacy the previous title laid out for it?
