After a fairly discreet communication from Nintendo, the Japanese giant reveals a lot more about its next major J-RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles 3. The new release date of the title was recently accompanied by a new trailer. Under the sharp eye of fans, it seems that this trailer reveals the presence of a character already present in previous titles.
The backdrop begins to unfold
Many fans are eagerly awaiting the return of the license Xenoblade Chronicles with the forthcoming release of the third opus. Monolith Soft, which had already contributed to the development of Breath of the Wildthis time takes care of this new J-RPG which is slowly starting to unfold.
It is difficult to summarize the entire plot of the saga so far as it is full of rich and precise mythological elements. Xenoblade 3 should make the link between the two previous opuses with the backdrop of the war between two nations: Keves and Agnus, who respectively represent mechanics and magic.
The two protagonists each come from the two camps. Noah is Keves’ champion, and should meet Mio. Our two heroes are both “soul carriers” responsible for accompanying the spirits of fallen warriors. They will be accompanied by four acolytes: Lanz, Eunie, Taion and Sena.
How is this team destined to form? What threat will our heroes face?
It will be possible to discover all this on July 29th.. In the meantime, fans are already hastening to dissect the little information that reaches us. Today, new leads seem to confirm the return of a major character well known to players from the first episode.
Melia, ruler of Keves
For those who have already traveled Xenoblade Chronicles, the name of Melia should bring back some memories. The mage was one of seven playable characters at the time. Daughter and second consort of Emperor Sorean, our heroine quickly joined Shulk’s group. Now, it looks like Xenoblade 3 will bring the character back, with harsher traits and darker designs than before. It is visible at exactly 1 minute and 41 seconds in the trailer available a little higher.
We don’t yet know Melia’s motivations, but she seems to belong to Keves’ camp, as the images shared on Nintendo’s site suggest. According to unofficial sources, Melia is the ruler of Keves. How did a mage arrive at the head of a nation mainly using mechanical engineering? Finally, this revelation raises even more questions than before. Enough to make the mouth water of the most impatient fans. Waiting, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is already available for pre-order.
