Extra Story

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition

One year has passed since the final battle.

The world is at peace, each race has joined hands, and restoration was underway.

In the midst of all that—.

Shulk suggests to Melia that they search for the Imperial Capital Alcamoth, which had gone missing.

The two board the airship Junks with their sights set on the Imperial Capital, but the ship is suddenly attacked by a mysterious bombardment.

And Junks crash-lands in a place called “Bionis’ Shoulder.”

New World

A further expanded world.

The setting of this new adventure is “Bionis’ Shoulder,” which you never visit in the main story. It is on the left shoulder of Bionis, a suspended mass made of floating minerals.
