A year after the events of Xenoblade Chronicles, Shulk and Melia use Junks to fly to the Bionis' Shoulder, but a beam originating from Alcamoth hits the ship and they crash into a lake near the Purifying Falls on the Shoulder. They notice a pack of Volffs threatening two Nopon nearby. They come to help and recognize the Nopon as Kino and Nene, two of Riki's and Oka's adopted Littlepon. After defeating the Volffs, they discuss how the two Nopon ended up on the Bionis' Shoulder. It turns out they sneaked onto Junks while Shulk and Melia were distracted.
