EDGE - Jan. 2018 review scores

Xenoblade Chronicles 2: 7 "It doesn't quite match the out-of-nowhere brilliance of the first game, nor is it as bold as the daring, but flawed, follow-up."

Animal Crossing Pocket Camp: 5 "Somewhere, Animal Crossing has mislaid its soul."

In shops and on Nintendo eShop now: Xenoblade Chronicles 2

In Xenoblade Chronicles 2, an enormous RPG out now on Nintendo Switch, explore a world of endless clouds, Alrest, where the last remnants of civilisation live on the backs of colossal beasts called Titans.

Experience the story of Rex and Pyra, a mysterious being known as a Blade who grants him tremendous power. Together, search for Pyra’s long lost home Elysium, the birthplace of humanity.

In this world, individuals known as Drivers can team up with artificial lifeforms called Blades to borrow their weapons and powers in battle. A Driver can take up to three Blades with them into combat, and switch between them mid-battle. Each Blade has its own elemental powers, special moves and weapons, and they let their Driver trigger different Driver Arts too. Switch between Blades to gain the advantage, build combos and devastate enemies!

From launch, you can download a free Japanese voice pack that will allow you to play the game with Japanese audio and English subtitles.* Plus, if you want to expand your epic adventure, you can also purchase an Expansion Pass for the game. With this pass, you can enjoy DLC as it releases between launch and autumn 2018. Details about individual elements of the Expansion Pass will be released in the future.**
