The final edition of Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition for Nintendo Switch was evaluated by the ESRB after last week’s South Korean rating group.
Nintendo of America has updated its rating for the next Switch port with age, which could suggest that an announcement of the title is coming soon. Generally, the games get rating a few months before their release. So far, Nintendo has only announced that the title will be released on the Switch somewhere this year.
As you will remember, Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition was recently rated in South Korea, and now the ESRB, which is responsible for qualifying games by age in the United States, has also done the same. He has qualified as T (Teen), as you can see in the following image:

For several weeks, there have been rumors that Nintendo will be broadcasting two Nintendo Direct shows this week, one being Animal Crossing Direct last week, and the other being a general, direct show. We can only hope that this is the case, since the last Direct dates from September of last year. It was during this Direct that Nintendo announced Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition for the Switch. We will keep you informed about this.
These types of ratings could be telling us that the release date of Xenoblade Chronicles is not far away. Remember that it is confirmed for 2020, although Nintendo has not yet provided any more concrete launch window for the game.
