@Dezzy My gosh, these are great. I am dying for this game.

@Dezzy I'm guessing those are displaying at a higher resolution than will be possible for the game on Switch?

Because that looks INSANELY good.

@Ralizah

These are all 1646x968. So just under 1080p resolution.

Seems plausible that's the docked resolution for the game to me.

You've gotta assume for a "definitive edition" that's focusing entirely on a visual makeover of a game that was optimized to run on the Wii, they were definitely going to aim higher than the 720p they managed for XC2.

Breath of the Wild is 900p after all. So it seems a realistic expectation for some of the most talented graphics programmers working for Nintendo.

Having both Xenoblades on Switch is going to be so amazing. The Switch just keeps getting better.

If we eventually get decent retro support on NSO, then I would label the console perfect.

@Dezzy WOW! Those shots... This game looks incredible. Hope the framerate is OK, with not too many dips.

I know this is getting way ahead of myself, but in 20 or so years once ray tracing is standard I hope we see this get remastered again. The texture work and modeling is clearly top notch already, but running at a solid 1080p60 with realistic lighting? The shadows are the one thing in those screenshots that don't look top notch.

The Works Set is finally open to preorder on AmazonNA.

I would've preferred the European version, but $20 over msrp for a CE box and artbook seems like a bargain compared to what scalpers will be charging for the EU version.

I think that's just because you're looking mostly at shadows that are far in the distance.

Open world games create shadows like this. So things close to the camera use a different quality than things far away (imagine the camera is at the bottom pointing upwards):

I don't think this has been posted yet. New track that was found once again on the Japanese site.
It's not clear exactly what it's for, but I'm guessing it's the general theme tune for the Shoulder.

I like it. Sounds like the theme song for a 90s police show or something:

I've gotta say, I've never been a massive fan of the XC1 OST, but the subtle changes made to the reorchestrated DE tracks really bring them to life.

The entire game is going to sound better musically, on top of looking way better and having an improved U.I.

The new track sounds great, too. Like something out of Torna. Very jazzy.

I'm sold. The game is preloading on my Switch.

Time to finally play and beat Xenoblade 1.

@Ralizah Gaur Plains was already a great track (if not the most iconic track in XC) if you ask me, but I'll admit this arrangement is slightly better. Engage the Enemy on the other hand blows the original version out of the water, no contest. That new theme though, just shows how far the musical talent there has come.

I didn't think the full version had been released yet?

@link3710 Yeah, the re-orchestrated version of Engage the Enemy (the first minute or so of it, at least) definitely benefits more, despite both tracks sounding absolutely fantastic. Really excited to hear what they do with other tracks in the game.

The music in this game was extraordinary! I have the original OST on CD and saved to my phone and still listen to it regularly. I hope these updated versions warrant a new OST release as well.

I actually have the OST for each game in the series. Great music!

@Dezzy it hasn't, but the first minute of the new version beats the entirety of the old one IMO.

It stops right before the good bit though! I'm gonna need to hear more before making that comparison.
