The Nintendo Switch seems to churn out a new masterpiece every few months, and for many RPG fans, there is hope that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 becomes the next big hit on the system when it launches on December 1st. To stoke the excited fires in the hearts of fans, Monolith Soft and Nintendo released a new story trailer and a music video for one of the game’s beautiful songs, “Shadow of the Lowlands.”

The music in both videos (attached down below) is sweeping and haunting. It pairs nicely with the emotionally-charged story of this game in which Blades are both companions and the weapons our characters fight with. Protagonists Rex and Pyra depend completely on each other. One thing is for certain: in this game, getting to the sacred Elysium is not going to be easy.

Our Verdict


Eric Zavinski
Hey all! I've been a gamer since I was three. I'm one of those people with gaming so ingrained in them that watching my father play Super Mario 64 is actually my first memory I can recall. I love writing too! I'm writing an original fantasy series that takes place in another universe; it may take some inspiration from some of my favorite franchises. I've been a journalist for a few years, have worked on local and national teams, and have garnered experience assigning stories, editing, writing, interviewing, hosting a television series, running a YouTube channel, and doing other stuff that's more fun to mention in conversation. Bios can drag on. Anyway, I'm super stoked to be a part of the Gamnesia team! Thanks for having me!
