Monolith Soft confirmed that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 release window on Nintendo Switch is within the holidays 2017. Apparently, a new leak courtesy of a game’s listing by a big Spanish retailer tipped the upcoming RPG’s exact Release Date.

Back at E3 2017, the game developer showcased a gameplay trailer teasing the fans an enthralling glimpse at the story, new characters, maps, and weapons of the highly anticipated title for release on Nintendo’s newest gaming console.

Also, the sneak peek included the announcement of the game’s launch window in the holiday season 2017.

Game listing leaks exact release date

Recently, however, a game listing spotted by eagle-eyed fans at a major Spanish retailer’s website apparently leaked the game’s exact release date on Nintendo Switch. If Mediamarkt's listing is any indication, “Xenoblade Chronicles 2” will be officially launched on December 15, 2017.

However, a retailer like Mediamarkt typically puts a placeholder date on a listing of an upcoming title, so it’s also plausible that the December 15 date is simply a placeholder for the purpose of pre-order.

In the absence of any comment or an official announcement to confirm this leak, fans should take this is with a grain of salt for now.

Gamescom 2017 new trailer

A couple of weeks ago at Gamescom 2017, Nintendo unveiled a new gameplay footage that lasted for almost an hour.

The trailer offered a first look at the stunning new map and a preview of the sci-fi RPG’s battle system.

New area

Similar to the original title, the second installment of the RPG series will reintroduce the players to the world scattered around the backs of gigantic Titans who wander around a boundless sea of clouds.

The settings are mostly located on the Titan’s backs but the Gamescom 2017 trailer showed off a new area known as Uraya that is located inside one of the giants.

The new area looks like a huge fairly lit cavern with some fall trees and free-flowing rivers that make it unique in contrast to other areas shown so far by Nintendo.

Check out the Gamescom 2017 trailer below.

Notably, the game also boasts of the special collaboration of "Kingdom Hearts 3" and "Final Fantasy 7 Remake" director Tetsuya Nomura in the design of a number of mysterious characters.

“Xenoblade Chronicles 2” is touted as one of the biggest titles other than “Super Mario Odyssey” that is coming to the Nintendo Switch this holiday season.
