If you’re excited for Xenoblade Chronicles X, start your download now. Yes, even for the on-disc version.


Xenoblade Chronicles X is now available for digital pre-load, Nintendo announced during today’s Nintendo Direct.

If you’re buying a physical copy, there’s a pre-load for you, too. Nintendo has made a number of “data packs” available, which will reduce loading times for the disc version.

The platform holder strongly recommends picking up at least the basic data pack, but there are several available. You can grab them all now ahead of Xenoblade Chronicles X’s December 4 Wii U release.
