Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is available now, bringing the fan-favorite Wii RPG to the Nintendo Switch with a modern facelift and all-new content. Like most RPGs, Xenoblade Chronicles is a very long game, and the Definitive Edition adds an entire epilogue on top of the already lengthy main story. The Xenoblade Chronicles story is split into several chapters, although the initial release of the game didn’t really tell you what chapter you were on unless you really looked for it. Now, the Nintendo Switch version has fully embraced the chapter model, telling you exactly what chapter you’re on every time you save.
The chapters aren’t named in-game, but the Japan-exclusive “Xenoblade: The Complete Guide” gives each one a title. Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition adds a new bonus epilogue chapter titled Future Connected, although that is separate from the main story and isn’t a numbered chapter. If you haven’t finished Xenoblade Chronicles, the chapter names below contain spoilers. This is how many chapters are in Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition.
