Xenoblade Data Packs Now Available In Europe

In their latest Direct broadcast earlier this month, Nintendo confirmed a series of data packs were to be available for Monolith Soft’s upcoming open-World RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles X. Up until now, these packs – which serve to speed up load times for the physical editions of the game – were only available in the States. However, Nintendo have confirmed European territories can now get their hands on the downloads starting today via the Nintendo eShop.

The four packs will speed up load times for a variety of in-game assets, however it’s recommended that all players download the ‘Basic High-Speed Data Loading Pack’, estimated at roughly 2GB in size, for a greater impact on loading times as well as booting up frequently-covered areas of the in-game World a lot quicker. The remaining three packs cover aspects such as enemy combat, Skells and equipment change. All packs will be included within the digital versions. Xenoblade Chronicles X launches later this week, December 4, on Wii U.
