@Grumblevolcano Is that it? Isn't there a bonus of some kind aside from the challenge?

@AlternateButtons Well it says you can buy stuff from travelling bards using bonus XP but you could technically get infinite bonus XP from doing merc missions so unless the stuff is very expensive, I don't see the advantage of leveling down for the purpose of buying stuff.

@Grumblevolcano Tbh, I'm a huge fan of tearing through old bosses with ease. ESPECIALLY old bosses that gave me a hard time. A revenge run if you will! But will I be able to start ANOTHER NG+ file in case I want to have that challenge next run? That's my only concern.

Yeah, I loved Chrono Trigger and XC1's NG+ for just letting you go crazy and massacring anything that goes in your way. That in itself is fun.

However, the ability to level yourself down is also very awesome, as it'll allow me to try crazy stuff like a complete playthrough at only level 1 (like one of Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia's Hard Mode selections).

That's why I'm gonna be doing two NG+ runs. One for that challenge run, the other as a "lol destroying everything" run.

Rip another 150 hours of my life lol.

@JTMnM Who are Zantez, Lago, Watch and Perdida? I haven't heard of or seen them before.

@Tsurii When were they used? I don't remember seeing them.
EDIT: Oh wait... they must just be Akhos, Mikhail, Patroka and Malos' blades. Sorry about my general unobservance.

@NinjaAceTrainer The main site included all the translated names in the article about the upcoming patch. The Torna Blades have incredible designs, in my opinion. Hype!

(Spoilers) I included images of the Torna Blades for anyone who wants them:

What about that last one though? In your earlier post, you listed 4 blades and Obrona and the 'other three'. Zantez, Lago, Watch and Perdido, are their Japanese names, plus Kamui (Obrona) I think.

@NinjaAceTrainer You must be mistaken.

Translated:

  • Yoshitsune (Akhos)
  • Benkei (Patroka)
  • Satahico (Mikhail)
  • Kamui (Obrona)

That leaves Zantez, Lago, and Watch. To clarify, I don't know their individual translations. Thanks to the official UK report, we know these three are Perdido, Cressidus, and Sever. Everyone is accounted for.

Just to be clear, with this New Game+ mode, I can choose to lower my level, and spend the EXP on those accessories expansions. Thus, when I go to an inn, I couldn't just raise my level back to where it was before.

I wouldn't be particularly interested in playing a New Game+ if I just breezed through it.

DLC update! (Spoilers)

"The official site "production note" has been updated too! This time, the update data to be delivered next week from Kantoku Takahashi (Ver. 1.3.0) is also an announcement about! https://www.nintendo.co.jp/switch/adena/production-notes/inde... … "

One of the key focal points here is the addition of several rare Blades: Yoshitsune (Akhos), Benkei (Patroka), Satahico (Mikhail), Kamui (Obrona), Zantez, Lago, and Watch. Perdido is already confirmed in an image included within the production note.

I can't find what Perdido's Japanese name is, though. Regardless, it's fair to assume the rest of the untranslated names are Torna Blades. If anyone knows, feel free to share!

So if I am reading this correctly, then Perdido is infact the English name of either Zantez, Lago or Watch, right? If so, sorry about the confusion, my mistake, I just didn't get that from reading your initial post. Regardless, I am very excited for all of their blade quests.
Wait a second... If Mikhail can act as a blade, then could Zeke act as a blade too? Imagine Rex with Nia, Mikhail and Zeke altogether! But wait... didn't Akhos, Patroka, Mikhail and Obrona all die? How does that work?

@NinjaAceTrainer It's New Game+. The bizarro realm where you can one-shot a boss and then inexplicably lose to them in a cutscene. The devs are running with the assumption that you've already legitimately experienced everything in a normal playthrough, so they're allowing you to throw away most of the grunt work and logistics in the name of fun. That includes owning blades you have no right to obtain normally, setting levels as high or low as you please etc.

Alone, a force. Together, a force of nature.

@meleebrawler In that case, I really want Zeke as a blade. Or Shulk. Or the Architect, why not?

@Grumblevolcano Aren't Torna's Blades the DLC blade(s)?

@NinjaAceTrainer New Game Plus isn't DLC, it's a free update for everyone. The DLC blade is the blade you get later on in the year if you bought the expansion pass.

@Grumblevolcano Oh, that's great! Thanks a lot for that. If it is Shulk, that would be amazing. Alvis, Malos or Jin would be good too.

@NinjaAceTrainer I think Shulk will be the DLC Blade.

If anyone of the Xenoblade Wii characters is going to be that DLC blade, it'll probably be Alvis. He is the third Aegis/AI core after all

If we didn't get Mikhail in New Game Plus I'd argue Shulk being a human alone would rule him out, but that obviously went out the window now.
