Monolith Soft director Tetsuya Takahashi revealed news about the next update
for Xenobalde Chronicles 2.
Update 1.3.0 will fix a bug from 1.2.0 where “in certain instances
during and after Chapter 7 … a Blade linked with a specific Driver disappears
from the Blade List (it only disappears from the list, the Blade itself does
not disappear),” Takahashi says. The bug is a result from the process of adding
“Advanced New Game Mode,” which allows players a second playthrough option that
launches with the update February 13.
It’s always nice when a developer makes necessary updates to a game, especially when it’s a huge RPG like Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Advanced New Game Mode also sounds like an enticing way to reel players back into the world of Alrest.
