Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition | $40 | Target
Look, this has been a slow year for new games. The ongoing state of the world has slowed down video game production so we’re in a bit of a drought when it comes to big releases. While you wait for new stuff, you can either blow through dozens of games and stress over what you’ll play next to fill the silence, or just get one big one and not worry about it. For that purpose, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is a great option. The Nintendo Switch action RPG is on sale for $40 and it’s a long one. Completionists can spend over 100 hours doing everything the game has to offer through its giant world. For those who played the original version, the Switch release features updated graphics, remixed music, and a brand new epilogue, so there’s some good reasons to double dip.
