Hot on the heels of the recent launch of Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii, fans and newcomers alike can discover even more about the game when Nintendo launches the next in the series of the Let's Play episodes. Anyone eager to explore more of the expansive world of Xenoblade Chronicles should visit the Xenoblade Chronicles YouTube Channel to watch the brand new episodes, launching today and Thursday 25th August.

After exploring the area of Bionis Leg, witnessing the attack on Colony 9 and crafting gems in the Ether Mine, in previous episodes, you can now enter back into the partially rebuilt Colony 6 and get a Non Playing Character (NPC). This character enables additional story sequences to be revealed on the Affinity Chart, perhaps forming a link or two on the way.

The fifth episode will allow you to explore Colony 6 in greater depth, initiating more dynamic relationships with characters such as Dunban, who you will see becoming the party leader in this episode. Learn about the auras, which increase skills such as strength, accuracy and evasion techniques.

As you are taken deeper into the game, the secrets of the Makna Forest are revealed - enter it immediately or once Melia has been recruited. Initiate transactions with the merchant Nopon race, uncovering the Arts and Equip menus in the process and discover the majestic secret areas using Riki as leader.

Note about spoilers: the Let's Play videos will show many locations, gameplay aspects and a few glimpses of cut scenes, but will largely avoid story spoilers. Nevertheless, viewer discretion is advised.

Now Xenoblade Chronicles has launched across Europe fans of engrossing adventure games can immerse themselves in everything this epic Wii RPG has to offer.
