Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition could be coming sooner than we thought.
After the eShop listing of Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition on the Australian and European eShops, it’s looking as though the game may be coming this May if the speculation is correct.
A fan over on Reddit noticed Amazon Mexico may have leaked a release date, one that – while it could be a placeholder – isn’t the norm when it comes to hidden release dates. Games will go with a December 31 release date if its date isn’t public. The page, which is still up as of writing this, pointed to a closer-than-expected May 29, 2020 release date.
It is important that this isn’t officially revealed, this could be a placeholder release date until Nintendo opts to finally reveal its official release. If all goes as speculated, though, this could be as little as a week as the possibility. Why? Because rumor is a new Direct will take place next week. Once again, though, all this is speculation and should be taken with a grain of salt until we fans can get confirmation from a Nintendo spokesperson.
There Could Be A New Direct?
With that in mind, the idea of a full Nintendo Direct has been a long, long time coming. Nintendo’s last non-specific Direct was all the way back in September. With the Coronavirus spreading and Nintendo seeking methods to share their activities with fans as they don’t feel comfortable going to events like E3 or other massive gatherings, it wouldn’t be a surprise.
It’s also been a while since we’ve heard any news about Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition aside from the listings. If Nintendo is listening to their fans as they aim to be “flexible,” this would be the perfect time to reveal the first full Direct of the year.
What do you think? Do you think this is a mere placeholder or something closer to its real release date?
