Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Nintendo Direct: Watch it here

We're just a few short minutes away from Nintendo's next Direct broadcast. As announced last week, this new Nintendo Direct will center around Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and that's almost certain to be the sole focus of the live stream. We've embedded the live stream in this post so you don't have to spend time finding it before Nintendo goes live.

As far as what to expect is concerned, we'll probably get an introduction to the game's story. Details about Xenoblade Chronicles 2 have been fairly light ever since the game was revealed earlier in the year, so this is the perfect time for Nintendo to begin building hype ahead of the game's December 1 release date.

We'll probably also get a few looks at gameplay, along with an introduction to the main characters. In general, it seems safe to expect to Nintendo to talk about what's new in a broad sense, giving us an overarching view of what's new in the world of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. One thing's for sure: fans of the first will definitely want to check this out.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is the last big Nintendo Switch game for 2017. The Switch has enjoyed an excellent year so far, kicking a string of well-received first-party releases off with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In the time since then, we've received games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and ARMS, with Super Mario Odyssey most recently launching just a little over a week ago.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 should serve as a nice bookend to 2017's Switch line up. Nintendo's Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Direct presentation is scheduled to begin at 9 AM Eastern, 6 AM Pacific, which is just a few minutes from now, so grab a cup of coffee and kick back.
