Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is all set to be an enormous - and likely intimidating - release at the end of the year. Since its announcement it's nestled comfortably on plenty of wishlists, as it'll be the first hefty RPG from Monolith Soft on the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo is keen to demonstrate, too, how the game continues to progress in development. An interesting tweet highlights visual differences with Rex in a cutscene, for example.

The recent screen also shows increased detail around his outfit. The two trailers in question - from January and then this month's Direct - are also below.

Nintendo Switch Presentation - January

Nintendo Direct - September

It's pretty clear, we think, that the development team has been doing plenty of optimisation and polish through the course of this year; here's hoping the end result delivers the quality we're all hoping to see.
