With Xenoblade Chronicles X out this Friday on Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe released a couple more trailers for the game. From the American side is a new video in its Survival Guide series, this time offering a nine-minute insight into exploration and resource gathering. Meanwhile, the European video offers a new trailer focusing on combat. Both trailers can be seen below.
Nintendo also released optional data packs for the game in both regions on the Wii U shop, which can be downloaded now ahead of its release.
