John didn't sleep the night of Switchmas, can you tell?
I was ready for Mario, I was ready for Zelda. What I wasn't ready for was Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Don't get me wrong I was absolutely confident that one was in development for Switch but at most I figured it would be a port of Xenoblade Chronicles X, or at most a text only tease with a short glimpse a pre-rendered sword or robot to get us all excited. What we wound up with was an albeit short but substantial trailer for an entirely new game. Will it make it to the states in 2017? I doubt it but at least the Switch isn't region locked so we can always import the Japanese version which will undoubtedly launch much earlier. I can't wait to see more of this game, analyse its world, and painstakingly compare its scale with other open world RPGs but for now, let's talk about the trailer.
