It noticed that the Wii and 3ds versions of xenoblade are a lot darker looking that definitive edition and was wonder what was people opinion on which they prefer.

@MorningRain Switch, easily. The environment and lighting changes are a non-question, being strict improvements. The only thing that's a matter of taste is the character models, which I'm ...fine with. They grew on me significantly, even if I still prefer the Wii character models slightly.

Vastly prefer the switch version. The character models are better looking, and so are the environments. I also love how much more expressive the characters are in the cutscenes. Heck, even some cutscenes where it was too muddy or dark to tell what was actually happening got improved as well.

I only played the 3ds and switch versions and I don't even understand how could I finish the game on 3ds as it is a dark blurry mess. The artstyle on switch is gorgeous (I will add that I allways dislike dark tones)

@Balta666 I honestly don’t get why anyone would get on the 3Ds version, since it’s nit even playable..

@VoidofLight well after playing XC2 and absolutely loving it and really wanted to play the original and in the UK was fairly easy to get my hands on the 3ds version but not on the Wii one (and actually I did not have a Wii at the time)

I'm still a little unsure about the art style (for some reason I feel that the anime aesthetic is a lot more fitting to XC2 - maybe I'm just averse to change!), but it undoubtedly looked better than the original. The original already looked fairly dated when it came out a decade a go, mostly due to being in SD rather the HD. I think other Wii games get away with it better due to being less detailed generally - whereas XC tries to cram a lot into 480p.

Now the music? That's a different question. I've not really listened to the soundtracks side-by-side, but for Gaur Plains at least I know there are some elements of the original that I prefer to the remaster.

Previously "timleon" and "HunterLeon"

Currently playing: who can keep track anymore.

Switch version looks a lot better. While I wasn't initially a fan of the new character styles, they do actually look really good when things are in motion, and obviously they made quite a lot of improvements to the environments as well, so the Switch version of the game is pretty much better across the board.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

The Switch version overall looks the best. From what I've played of the Switch version, I think Satorl Marsh at night is slightly off with the bloom effect from the trees and the weather outside in Eryth Sea while inside the main section of Alcamoth doesn't seem as striking as on the Wii. I think the only reason why I would want to play the Wii version now is to re-experience how cozy Alcamoth was during a storm or meteor shower.

The characters have actual faces on switch.

If someone prefers the original's visuals they need to see a doctor. That's not even a nostalgia thing, it's just a straight upgrade in all regards.

Switch for the HD visuals, and i guess 3DS for the portability!

@DomGC I saw someone who said that the switch version looked horrible, yet said 2 looked fine. They need to get their eyes checked..

@YusseiWarrior3000 The dude is a huge xenoblade 2 fan, and kept saying how he hates the original, but yet he only got to the second area of the game and decided it was garbage.

He apparently beat it on the Wii, and bought it again to see if it was any better.
