Xenoblade Chronicles 3

After plenty of leaks and speculation, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was finally officially unveiled during the last Nintendo Direct, with the Japanese publisher showing off Monolith Soft’s upcoming action RPG in what was quite a packed reveal trailer. New details on the game have also arrived since then, thanks to its official UK page.

As previously confirmed by Nintendo, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will “bring together the futures of Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2“. Set in the world of Aionios, the upcoming sequel’s story will revolve around two warring nations- Keves, a nation that uses highly advanced mechanical technology, and Agnus, a nation that’s stronger in ether, a magical technology.

The core cast of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will focus on six characters, all hailing from these two nations, and two of whom will be the game’s central protagonists. One of those is Noah, a Keves soldier who’s described as an “‘off-seer’ who mourns for soldiers who’ve lost their lives on the battlefield.” The second protagonist is Mio, a soldier of Agnus, and another off-seer.

Both Noah and Mio will also bring two allies apiece along with them. With the former there’s Lanz, who wields a greatsword that, interestingly enough, doubles as a shield, and Eunie, who specializes in healing and is described as having “a sharp tongue and rough personality.” Meanwhile, Mio’s allies Taion – who uses “his smarts and insight” as a tactician in battles – and Sena – a seemingly diminutive but deceptively strong soldier – will also be along for the adventure.

A bunch of new screenshots from the game, all taken from its recent announcement trailer, have also been revealed. Check them out below.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is due out in September for Nintendo Switch.
