As we get closer and closer to the release date for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, we get more and more peeks at the additions and changes made from the original. Case in point: a new set of time attack challenges that are peppered throughout the world.


Similar to the Challenge Mode added to Xenoblade 2 post-launch, Time Attack sets up a series of challenges for your party to face within a constricted frame of time. Some will allow you to pick a party loadout of your own choosing, while others are restricted to a pre-made setup. Depending on how fast you are, you’ll get a grade evaluating how well you did, along with Nopon Crystals that can be exchanged for a variety of equipment and gems, including some wonderfully ridiculous outfits:

This is just one of many great additions that Xenoblade DE appears to be making. We’ll be sure to let you know about any more as we count down to the game’s release on May 29th.
