We got a beefy Nintendo Direct this morning focused on the upcoming RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles 3! This game tells the story of six fugitives of war between the two nations of Aionios, Keves and Agnus. As Noah and his party, you’ll travel all over the world, finding the colonies of the two nations and battling both wild monsters and robotic warriors of the nations.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 carries over the traditional combat system of the previous games, but with new additions. You can now have up to six party members in a battle at once, freely switch character classes, and interlink certain main party members to form Ouroborus units. These units are controlled by one character at a time, and you can switch the lead character to access different sets of arts.
Notably, this Direct revealed that the game will receive an Expansion Pass. After release, you can gain access to new items, outfits, and Heroes, ending off with an additional story scenario releasing in 2023. You can also use amiibo to receive new items, such as a Monado cosmetic for the Swordfighter class. This pass and its first wave of content will be available alongside the game on day one. Lastly, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 releases for Switch on July 29th.
