Xenoblade Chronicles 3D  



Xenoblade Chronicles confirmed for New 3DS

So that's why Shulk is in Super Smash Bros.

After showing off the "New 3DS" model during their Japanese Direct, Nintendo cut right into some footage of Xenoblade Chronicles on the 3DS. Very little is actually known at this point, but it is confirmed that it will be a port of some sort, and it's coming to Japan next year -- I'm sure a localization is in order eventually.

Here's the bad news. Based on what Iwata stated in the Direct, this port, and a few other future games will only be playable on the New 3DS due to its upgraded power. Fragmentation!

Want to know exactly how Xenoblade Chronicles 3D's amiibo and StreetPass mechanics work?

As some of you may know, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D will ship with amiibo support. It's not all that complicated -- you touch Shulk to your New 3DS and you earn tokens that you can spend on in-game models or music tracks. A lot of people have asked for a rundown of what exactly that entails, and since I have access to the game I figured I'd shed some light on the feature.more
