Nintendo has given us a massive helping of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 info during today's Nintendo Direct broadcast, including the final release date, which is December 1st.

During the broadcast, much information was dished out on the game's story and combat system, which revolves around "Drivers" and their summoned helpers, known as "Blades".

The title will launch alongside a special edition which comes with extra goodies, including a music CD, artbook and metal case. There will also be a specially-themed Xenoblade Chronicles Switch Pro Controller.
