Those Who Own a Physical Copy of Xenoblade Chronicles X Should Download the High-Speed Data Loading Pack Before eShop Closure

With the announcement that Nintendo will be shutting down access to the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS eShop stores, many are scrambling to try and remember what needs to be downloaded. Well, we’re here to help.

Xenoblade Chronicles X launched on Wii U in 2015 and has been exclusive to the console with no signs of a port in sight. The game offers a different type of Xenoblade adventure with players creating their own character as they set out on a mission across an unknown planet. It’s a decent game, but the hardware of the Wii U often struggles to keep up with the adventure.

Sadly, the physical version of the game does not include some much-needed faster loading content packs that are available for download. I should note that if you purchased the game digitally, you will already have these packs.

There are four that should be downloaded, Basic High-Speed Data Loading Pack, Enemy High-Speed Data Loading Pack, Player High-Speed Data Loading Pack, Skell High-Speed Data Loading Pack. Each pack can be downloaded as a standalone option, but you should really just pick them all up. However, another issue is that they are over 15 GBs of content, which may be more than your WiiU can house. Thankfully, you can install them on a USB and access them whenever.

Here’s the complete description of the packs:

  • Basic High-Speed Data Loading Pack: For greatest impact on your experience, download this pack first.
    • High impact to load times
    • Installs frequently used data, such as terrain to speed up load times in the city and field.
    • For greater load-time improvement, use in conjunction with one or more of the other data packs below.
    • Size: 2011.0 MB
  • Enemy High-Speed Data Loading Pack: For players who like to explore and fight enemies.
    • Medium impact to load times
    • Installs frequently used data in the field, such as enemy data.
    • For greater load-time improvement, use in conjunction with the Basic data pack.

  • Player High-Speed Data Loading Pack: For players who like to complete lots of missions.

  • Skell High-Speed Data Loading Pack: For players who own and like to customize Skells.
    • Low impact to load times

    • For greater load-time improvement, use in conjunction with the Basic data pack

We hope this helps you organize what you need to get done before they shut down the service.
