Those of you who have completed Xenoblade Chronicles 2 might be interested to learn that its New Game+ feature has been announced by Takahashi of Monolithsoft. The update will be coming sometime in February as part of the game’s v1.3.0 update. What exactly this New Game+ will entail is still up for speculation, but it will certainly breathe new life into the title for many people who may have put it down after completing it.
The following is the announcement as translated by a Reset Era member by the name of Miller.
“Hello, everyone. I’m Takahashi of MonolithSoft.
In this, my first production note of 2018, I start with a bug report.
In update v1.2.0, in the middle of chapter 7, there is a bug wherein a Blade synchronized with a certain Driver will not be displayed on the Blade List in specific circumstances. (Not being displayed does not mean that the Blade has disappeared.)
This glitch was introduced as a result of changes made in preparation for the upcoming ‘New Game +’ mode to be implemented when v1.3.0 launches mid-February.
A fix to this bug will also be included in the v1.3.0 update.
Although this will be inconvenient for about half a month,
I ask that you please be patient and know that this is still in active development.
Additional information regarding the contents of v1.3.0 will be shared as we approach its release.”
