The big surprise of the week is undoubtedly at Nintendo with the year of the release advanced by almost two months for Xenoblade Chronicles 3. The game continues to reveal itself a little more because today we discover the main theme of this new opus with a short video showing us more combat…
It must be said that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is eagerly awaited by fans because the three previous games (Xenoblade Chronicles (Nintendo Wii) and its remasters (New Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch), Xenoblade Chronicles X and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Nintendo Switch)) are found to be nuggets. We hope (and we have no doubt) that this new opus will live up to the previous ones.
In the meantime, today we discover the main theme of this Xenoblade Chronicles 3 in line with the previous ones, namely soft music but announcing a great epic adventure, as well as a very short video showing us a little more of the fighting. Moreover, as a reminder, here is what awaits us concerning the new combat system:
- Lead up to 7 characters into battle: as in previous Xenoblade Chronicles games, combat is initiated by directly attacking enemies on the field. Players can take control of Noah’s six-member party, as well as control additional characters the party encounters along the way. Each character taking on a particular role on the battlefield, it is possible to establish all kinds of strategies.
- Class changes: Noah is a swordsman who specializes in close quarters combat, while Mio is a zephyr who draws enemy attention while dodging their blows brilliantly. Each character thus belongs to a distinct class which gives them unique advantages. As the adventure progresses, players will be able to customize the composition of the party by changing the class of each of its members.
- Interlink: each duo of the group, Noah and Mio, Lanz and Sena, or even Eunie and Taion can use the Interlink after fulfilling certain conditions to merge and take the form of a gigantic Ouroboros. Each Ouroboros has its own combat techniques, and triggering this transformation at the right time will be the key to achieving victory.
I leave you without further delay to discover the two videos. Enjoy!
