There has been much speculation on whether Xenoblade Chronicles 2 would be released this calendar year. Due to the scope of the original and vision for the sequel some hesitance was granted, but today at Nintendo's E3 Spotlight the game was reconfirmed for a 2017 release, with a more solid window of Holiday 2017. 

The much anticipated sequel promises "an endless ocean of clouds" accessible for exploration. It will also feature the "last remnants of civilization" living "on the backs of colossal beasts called Titans". You will then be able to follow the "story of Rex and his new friend, Pyra, a mysterious being known as a Blade who grants him tremendous power".
