Together, you'll fight for the survival of mankind, under threat by Malos, who wields the legendary sword, The Monado. - To stand a chance, you must master every character's powerful skills including Talent Arts, a strategic element returning from the original Xenoblade Chronicles game. By equipping Drivers with new weapons, you can alter their attacks and elemental powers to perform devastating combos. - On the long road ahead, you'll rest at camps, cook food, craft items, and share a heart-to-heart with many a traveling companion. Who knows where this twisted journey will lead.
