Nintendo has kept a lot of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 under wraps, but during today's direct it finally revealed more of the game's unique story and thrilling combat.

A new trailer, which you can see below, introduces you to how Rex and Pyra become allies after Pyra brings Rex back from the dead. Rex wants to repay her by taking her to Elysium, a fabled paradise for humanity.

Throughout the footage, you see your various allies and the imposing forces that are trying to keep you from your goal. At the very end, we're introduced to Mythra, a mysterious fourth Blade for Rex. 

We also got an extensive look at the combo-driven battle system, mercenary missions that help level up your unequipped Blades, and the customization options you'll have. Watch the full direct to learn more
