A rating for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has been identified in South Korea. The rating was found on South Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee’s website. The remastered version of the original Wii game was announced in September 2019, but since then we’ve heard no new details about it. This listing doesn’t change that, since it reveals nothing about the game itself. However, the rating could indicate that news about the game will come soon, especially pertaining to a release date.
When Nintendo originally teased Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, they did so with a 2020 release window. Currently there’s only one major game that Nintendo and Nintendo fans seem to have on their minds in 2020, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. That game launches on March 20, 2020, and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX comes out sooner on March 6. After those games release though, there could be quite a large gap before the next big Switch game that we know of arrives.
So far Nintendo has done a stellar job of filling up the year with regular game launches. Just this month we already have Metro Redux to look forward to. Hopefully Nintendo is planning on giving us a release date that isn’t too far away for this beloved classic.
In related Korean ratings news, their ratings board also recently outed the existence of Catherine: Full Body and XCOM 2 on Switch.
