Xenoblade Chronicles was originally released on the Wii 10 years ago, but Monolith Soft is bringing it back with an enhanced port on the Nintendo Switch this month. Not only does the Definitive Edition come with a graphical upgrade and remastered soundtrack, it also comes packed with new story content. Here’s how to start the Future Connected epilogue in Xenoblade Chronicles.
Starting the Future Connected Epilogue in Xenoblade Chronicles
Future Connected is a brand new epilogue chapter included in Definitive Edition, and the good news is that you can start it immediately without having to beat the main game. To do this, simply boot up the game, then choose the Extra Story option from the title screen menu.
Do be warned that the epilogue pretty much assumes that you’re already intimately familiar with the events of the main game, and it’s strongly recommended that you beat that first before jumping in. For veterans of the series who have already experienced the story, though, this makes it convenient for you to get into the new content quickly.
Taking place one year after the events of the main story, Future Connected features Shulk and Melia as the main characters, and it takes place on the new Bionis’ Shoulder area added into the game.
You’ll be battling new enemies known as Fog Beasts, and will also be accompanied by two new Nopon characters named Kino and Nene. It also introduces some new battle mechanics so there’s plenty of fresh new content to get into here.
You can also jump into the epilogue in the middle of playing the main story, as neither scenario has any discernible impact on the other.
That’s all you need to know about how to start the Future Connected epilogue in Xenoblade Chronicles. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more tips and information on the game.
