Monolith Software Director Tetsuya Takahashi revealed in a new production note that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for the Nintendo Switch will be getting a new update sometime in mid-February and will feature the much awaited ‘New Game Plus’ mode and a bug fix that surfaced in version 1.2.0 update.
Here’s the full statement of Tetsuya Takahashi:
In the version 1.2.0 update, there is a bug in certain instances during and after Chapter 7 where a Blade linked with a specific Driver disappears from the Blade List (it only disappears from the list, the Blade itself does not disappear).
This is a bug that occurred during the process of adding the second playthrough element called “Advanced New Game Mode,” which will be implemented in the version 1.3.0 update planned for mid-February.
We apologize for the inconvenience for the about half a month that remains, but we are working hard on the development of the update, so please give us your patience.
More information regarding the specific updated content of version 1.3.0 will be shared leading up to its release.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is now available for the Nintendo Switch.
