Xenoblade Chronicles X shows off dynamic weather, day-night cycle

Vlade Divac Chronicles X

Day and night cycles aren't new, but it's a pretty one at least. Actually, thinking on it, more RPGs (particularly Japanese RPGs) could benefit from a day and night cycle just for the perceived visual variation on the hours and hours spent traversing and grinding. Xenoblade Chronicles X is continuing the trend with time of day affecting monster availability in the field.

You'll be able to adjust time of day at rest stops by immediately sleeping some hours away.

Planet Mira also has dynamic weather, from your typical clear sky, clouds, rain, and storms to even grander weather happenings like heat waves and sandstorms. These aren't just cosmetic -- they'll affect battle as well.

Oh, and that dive, brief pause, and sudden surfacing with a bat out of hell swim stroke. Good stuff.
