The Kotobukiya Siren figurine from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is looking spiffy as hell. The figurine is set to launch in Japan this November, and will cost 12,000 Yen.
You might remember news of the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Soundtrack CD Deluxe Edition selling out pretty quickly in Japan. That left quite a number of fans out of luck when trying to purchase one, but we have good news. Nintendo has confirmed that a reprint is on the way to Japan, but a date for the release is yet-to-be confirmed. The package is exclusive to Amazon Japan and comes with CDs containing all tracks in the game, a special box, booklet, message card, and piano score.
The follow are details for Monolith Soft fiscal earnings for the year ending March 2018...
- net profit of 138,000,000 yen ($1.25 million)
- this is a 60% drop from the 346,000,000 yen ($3.15 million) they made in the fiscal year ending March 2017
- high research and development expenses for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 may have affected Monolith Soft’s profitability
- Monolith Soft was in charge of a small portion of Splatoon 2, so higher expenses could have been incurred in the last fiscal year
Shulk and Fiora were recently added to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 as part of the Battle Challenge Mode Pack.
Nintendo teased that Shulk and Fiora, the classic duo now available in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, could be moved over from the Challenge Battle Pack to the main game, but they didn't say how. Now that people have been pouring through the latest update, we have step-by-step details on how to do so!
- Go to Menu > Expansion Pass > Gift from Zuo > select Nopon Summons and press A
- Go to the Fast Travel menu, and fast travel to Kingdom of Uraya > Olethro Ruins > Olethro Playhouse
- Move towards the strange crystal, right in front of you after fast travelling. After the cutscene, examine the portal
- After the cutscenes, go talk to the Nopon Archsage, and take on the Challenge called “Dino Drama”.
- New Challenge Battle Mode gives players many chances to test their skills, plenty of loot to earn, and some minor story elements that show the characters in a new light
- Battle hordes of enemies in Waves to complete each challenge
- Shulk and Fiora from Xenoblade Chronicles join the fight as Blades!
