    No thread for this yet?

    Collectors edition up for preorder, a bit rubbish if you ask me, art book and soundtrack, meh.

    I preordered it without really looking at it. Got the email from Nintendo and rushed to preorder. Will be canceling.

    I like artbooks but this is a bit pricy and I don't plan to get a Switch anytime soon so a future standard I imagine for me when I eventually get one. Still got to polish off Xenoblade X and actually start XC so no rush here. I was impressed that the placeholder December date was accurate though.

    I'm so looking forward to this. My Switch is ready for another single player time sink.

    Just going digital as the first one didn't leave my disc drive for about 6-months.

    I'd wait for the file size before deciding on a digital purchase for this one. Xenoblade Chronicles X was a 22GB download on Wii U . This one looks like a bigger game, in my opinion.

    Not sure how I feel about this. Loved the first, the setting was original and it was a joy to explore the world. I didn't enjoy X as much and despised New LA (that fucking music!). As soon as I got a mech I more or less stopped playing, the combat dynamic shifted in a direction I didn't enjoy despite traversal being a lot more fun. Overall in both titles, I wasn't mad on the combat in general. Are they making any changes to it this time around?

    I'm not sure about this one at all.

    It seems good on paper, just my kind of game, but the footage at E3 etc looked so slow and repetitive. The developers said they'd increased the enemies' hp so they could have time to explain the battle system but it looked exhausting.

    I'll wait for reviews and watch some let's play videos to see what the finished game is like before deciding.

    I'm sure it will pull together just fine.

    I have the CE for XBX but I won't be getting the CE for this version. It's a bit steep for a book and a CD (CD's? Who the fuck even uses them nowadays?)

    Still down for the normal version though.

    I was really looking forward to the CE and if it was 65 I would have bitten their hands off but 80 is a bit too pricey. I might just buy the standard and get the proper art book later

    The Prima guide for X was fantastic. That will be the way I go too if there is a edition for XBC2

    Xenoblade Chronicles X put me off this a bit.

    It was gorgeous but the battle system was laborious.

    Wasn't going for the collector's edition until I noticed the art book was 200 pages, which is a slight jump from the usual 30-odd pages we get with these things...

    Would usually be into this kind of game, but I can't get into the battle system...

    Getting a mini chub on now.

    Glad to see theyve improved the face models, they were pretty shit in chronicles X.

    I enjoyed Chronicles X a lot but mostly for the exploring. I thought a lot of the side quests were pump and the characters were quite bland. I never really got to grips with the combat either.

    But that first twenty or thirty hours unlocking new worlds and exploring was utterly glorious. Hoping for something similar.

    I think this looks really interesting but it's not for me, I don't think think. I'm not willing to put down the cash on a gamble when I have so much other stuff to play.

    I watched the direct on my lunch break and thought it looked great, just not sure I'll have the time for it, seems like it'll be a massive time sink.

    It's unnecessarily more complicated than in the original game, but when you get it down it becomes second nature. You're making decisions on the fly and battles end up having a really nice flow to them.

    The hype hasn't dialled up to 10 for me, but the original game is my all-time favourite JRPG. The whole overworld in this game looks incredible and even if the rest of the game falls flat, I want to explore and see it all.

    Hoping skmeone gets me this for xmas! Cant justify the expense so close to xmas when i have many unplayed/unfinished games (uncharted 4, southpark, mario vs rabbids, mario odyssey all to finish and then shadow of war and horizon still to start).

    I love the combat system. To me it is the perfect balance between turn based of old jrpg and the modern action rpg of ff15.
