Just ahead of Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s worldwide release, Nintendo and Monolith announced beloved character KOS-MOS Re: will be making an appearance in the epic new JRPG as a Rare Blade.
The game’s official Twitter account revealed KOS-MOS Re:’s inclusion with a new look at the character. Originally making her debut in the Xenosaga RPG trilogy on PlayStation 2 as KOS-MOS, the android character played an integral part in the series’ plot, meant to be a “savior” of humanity in the trilogy.
It’s currently unknown how rare of a blade KOS-MOS Re: will be, but players will know they’ve successfully acquired her, as her special introduction when bonding with a new Core Crystal will play.
