Set one year after the events of Xenoblade Chronicles, Future Connected is a newly included story chapter starring Shulk, Melia, and other new characters. It’s available right from the start and can be experienced at any time – though new players may want to discover Shulk’s main adventure first!

Whether you’re a series veteran or stepping into Bionis for the first time, two new modes are available to give you the journey that you desire. Lower the difficulty set in battles with Casual Mode, or take more control over your earned EXP and distribute it manually in Expert Mode.

And much more!
