We're all guilty of seeing some of the past through rose-tinted spectacles, and that's definitely the case with Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii. After seeing Shulk in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, it's fair to say we remembered the original being a little prettier than perhaps it really was.

Thankfully all that has come to a happy little conclusion with Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition on the Switch, which soups-up the visuals to a ludicrous degree. We've slapped both the original and the shiny new version side by side in the comparison video above, and if you're curious to know what we think of the game having only gone and bloody played it, you can check out our hands on as well.

If video's not your thing, we also have a gallery for you to feast your charming little peepers on as well:
