Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Dec. 1)
The biggest Nintendo Switch game to look out for in December 2017 is definitely going to be Xenoblade Chronicles 2. It’s the console’s headlining title for the month and it’s a massive open world title that JRPG fans should keep an eye out for. Though it is part of the larger Xeno game series, you don’t have to play the previous games to enjoy this one.
Taking place in a large open world sat on top titan monsters, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 features a new cast of characters, along with a protagonist named Rex who’s searching for something called Elysium. Like most open world games these days, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has interconnected environments and a dynamic day and night cycle, as well as a multitude of side quests that you can tackle along your way.
The time cycle will affect your quest progression as well, and if you’re a fan of open world games, this could be a good one to keep you occupied over the holidays.
