    Xenoblade Chronicles 3 pushed ahead to July 29th, Special Edition revealed

    In a shocking turn of events, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 received the exact opposite of a delay! Alongside a brand new trailer for the game, it’s been announced that the initial window of September 2022 has been moved up to July 29th, so you can explore Aionios much sooner that you had expected.

    Read up on the full release date announcement, new game details and check out the new trailer below:

    Originally announced to launch in September of this year, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will now launch for the Nintendo Switch family of systems on July 29. The latest entry in the long-running role-playing series, which connects the futures of the two previous mainline Xenoblade Chronicles games, invites players to embark on an epic adventure with “life” as its central theme.

    In the game, players will step into the roles of protagonists Noah and Mio amid turmoil between the nations of Keves and Agnus. Six characters hailing from those nations join forces to learn the truth behind their conflict, and set their sights for Swordsmarch, a land pierced by a giant sword.

    The new trailer for the game reveals the background of the group’s journey in Aionios, a vast and sublime natural world, and reveals new details about the battle system:

    • Battle with up to seven characters: Like in previous Xenoblade Chronicles games, battles start by facing enemies directly in the overworld. Players can control Noah’s party of six, as well as additional characters they’ll meet during the adventure. Each character has their own role in battle, which allows for diverse strategies.

    • Class change: Noah is a Swordfighter, specializing in close-range attacks, while Mio is a Zephyr, drawing enemy attention while evading their strikes. Thus, each character has their own class with their own strengths. Progressing in the adventure, players can change characters’ classes, creating a customized party.

    • New Interlink system: Each of the tag-team pairs – Noah and Mio, Lanz and Sena, Eunie and Taion – can make use of the Interlink system if certain conditions are met. They will then combine into a giant form called Ouroboros. Each Ouroboros has its own powerful move set, and deciding when to transform can be the key to winning a battle.

     A Special Edition of the game will also be available via the My Nintendo Store, including package artwork from Masatsugu Saito, a full-color 250-page+ hardcover art book and a steel case. More details about the Special Edition will be revealed in the future.

    Lastly, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 releases on July 29th exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for more in the latest gaming news and updates!
