Nintendo will host a Nintendo Direct presentation dedicated to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 next week.

It will take place on November 7 at 9am ET, 2pm UK and can be watched on YouTube, the Nintendo Direct US website, Nintendo Direct UK website and the Switch Facebook page.

The game stars a fella named Rex and Pyra, a mysterious being known as a blade, who wants to return to her lost home of Elysium. Players will explore the clouded remnants of a civilization which has been hoisted onto the backs of colossal beasts called Titans.
