Developed by Monolith Soft, Xenoblade Chronicles is a JRPG released for the Wii about 10 years ago. Now, in 2020, the classic RPG is back with an improved and enhanced Definitive Edition for the Nintendo Switch. There are a lot of gameplay mechanics and elements to be aware of in this game, and even the time of day can affect the kinds of quests and activities you have access to. Here’s how to wait and pass time in Xenoblade Chronicles.
Xenoblade Chronicles is a massive, open world JRPG that basically throws hundreds of side quests and activities at you throughout the whole runtime. However, the clock is constantly ticking as well when you’re playing. The game features a day/night cycle and the time of day will determine which side quests you can take on.
Some NPCs will only be available for you to talk to in the day, and some objectives can only be completed in the evening. You could just play the game naturally and wait for time to pass, but you can also change it manually if you don’t want to wait around.
Wait and Pass Time in Xenoblade Chronicles
To do this, bring up the menu by pressing the X button, then choose the Change Time option with the A button. After that, just use the d-pad to scroll through the numbers and choose what time you want to skip ahead to. This is a great way to knock out a ton of side quests quickly.
In addition to that, different enemy types will also show up in the open world according to the time of day. Powerful types may show up during the night, meaning it might be a good idea to change the time to the day so that it’s easier to move through the open world.
