The folks over on the Xenoblade Chronicles datamine discord channel and subreddit are pretty damn incredible. While data mining the game, they discovered information that indicated that in an upcoming patch, the difficulty level in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be completely customizable. There are a total of 10 different difficulty sliders reflected in the image below that you can adjust.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 to Receive Customizable Difficulty

As of right now this is not confirmed and as such, it is still regarded as a rumor, but the likelihood that this will happen is very high. Data like this doesn’t just appear out of nowhere. This is fantastic for players though, allowing them to completely customize their experience, rather than simply an “easy”, “normal”, or “hard” mode. This is quite refreshing compared to how other titles tackle difficulty.

Monolith Soft has been continuing to support Xenoblade Chronicles 2 since day one. It’s obvious they are passionate about the series, and even want to do an X-2 and a Xenoblade Chronicles 3. This is just one more update to a host of patches that have come out since the game released in December. On top of that, the season pass has offered a whole host of brand new content.

It is unknown if this update will hit when the newest story DLC unveiled at E3, Torna – The Golden Country, is released in September. This is the perfect example of a masterpiece which has only gotten better over time, if that’s possible, due to the passion of the developers and the support and encouragement from Nintendo.

Once Torna hits with improved gameplay, a brand new Titan to explore, and hopefully customizable difficulty parameters, it will be difficult to deny that this is the best RPG of the last five years, at least, as well as the best title on the Nintendo Switch.

While this has to be categorized as a rumor at this point in time, it’s a certainty that it will happen
