A technically impressive port of a masterly RPG, though the small screen ultimately proves too restrictive for a game of this scope.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D shrinks an epic RPG into a nifty portable form. Even though the New 3DS' speedier hardware can't make it look quite as good as it does on the Wii, its scope and scale still make it an impressive and deep game that's well suited for play on the go.

Still the best Japanese role-player of the last generation, even if squeezing it down onto the New 3DS does it few favours.

It'll take more than a few compression issues to take the shine off of this JRPG classic.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D is a valiant attempt at bringing an ambitious and expansive RPG to the handheld realm. For the most part it works, but the original undoubtedly shines brighter than this tweaked offering.

In portable form, Xenoblade Chronicles has more room to breathe

Xenoblade Chronicles is an above-average RPG hamstrung by a really bad port. From the muddy visuals to the barebones interface, it's hardly a visual showcase for the New 3DS. It has merit, and its best qualities still manage to shine through on the small screen, but it's definitely not the optimal way to enjoy one of the more celebrated RPGs of the last generation.
