Nintendo UK reconfirms Fire Emblem Warriors, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for launch in 2017

This comes from the Nintendo UK feature we posted earlier today, which looks at titles hitting Switch in 2017...

If those aren’t enough, in autumn you can look forward to Fire Emblem Warriors. Fans of huge RPGs should anticipate the arrival of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 this year as well!

There's the latest update on both of those titles, which will apparently see release before the year closes out. Let's see if Nintendo actually makes that happen!

RUMOR - Xenoblade Chronicles X receiving a Switch port

This is one game I personally thought would be a shoe-in for porting over to Switch. Now Laura Dale has come forward and said she believes the title is indeed going to receive a Switch port. I could only imagine how much the Switch would allow for this game to really sing!
