Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna The Golden Country New Six-Minute Trailer
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna The Golden Country
Nintendo™ Switch – Japan & US
The new story expansion for Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Torna The Golden Country, has just received a new trailer that was released by Nintendo. It is a six-minute overview Japanese trailer. You can enjoy watching the video below.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna The Golden Country centers on the game’s antagonist, Jin. It revolves around the history of his birthplace, Torna. Torna has been around hundreds of years before the story of the main game occurs.
This new expansion is set 500 years before the main game. So, if you play Torna – The Golden Country first, it’s possible that you’ll be seeing the main game differently. But at the same time, it’s a great entry point to Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
Torna – The Golden Country is the final listed expansion on the game’s website, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s going to be the last update.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna The Golden Country will be available as a downloadable content via the game’s Expansion Pass or as a standalone retail version. And if you are wondering if you can play the standalone version even without the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 main game, the answer is, yes.
The game will be available for the Expansion Pass owners on September 14, while the standalone retail version will launch on September 21.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna The Golden Country standalone version is available for pre-order here at Play-Asia.com. Reserve your copies now.
You can watch the first trailer released for the game below. One is with English subs and one is without.
- Story set 500 years before Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – The story of Torna – The Golden Country covers not only the pasts of key characters from the main game like Jin, Mythra, Malos, and Praetor Amalthus, but will also spotlight characters like Lora and Addam, who factor heavily into the lore of Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
- New adventures on a new map – The Tornan Titan will be added as a new field map in Torna – The Golden Country. A lot of other RPGs set their additional story sections on existing maps, but Torna – The Golden Country’s maps will be entirely new. And in addition to the field map, we’ll add the capital city of Torna as a new town map. Given that these events take place 500 years ago, the playable areas in Torna – The Golden Country will be limited to Torna and the surrounding areas.
- Reworked battle system – Torna – The Golden Country is set in an era of history before Drivers and Blades had learned to co-operate seamlessly during battle, and so there will be a new battle system used in this expansion. The refined battle system will still be based on the one seen in the main game.
- New music added – New songs have also been added to Torna – The Golden Country. They were composed by Mitsuda-san and some others who were involved with the main game. The feel of the new music is a bit more grown up, in keeping with the more grown-up tone of Torna – The Golden Country overall. They’re played mostly on acoustic instruments and have a real groove to them.
