There is (almost) June without Direct, and this time Nintendo has dedicated one exclusively to Xenoblade Chronicles 3: here are all the news
What can I say, we were expecting a Direct in June and Nintendo served it to us on a silver platter: the main course was yesterday Xenoblade Chronicles 3. The game, scheduled for the hybrid console on July 29, will link the previous two adventures from Monolith Soft. Specifically, the events of both are closely linked in their future, but this adventure also promises an ideal starting point for newcomers as well. As always happens in this franchise, the protagonists Noah and Miyo find themselves embroiled in a conflict of as titanic proportions as the colossal helpless bodies that house it.
We don’t want to if we thought about mentioning Danny DeVito’s film, but the beginning of the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Direct it was so “in medias res” that it gave us the opportunity to make fun of the war in question. On the one hand the nation of Fewon the other theAgnusready to share the game world, Aionios. Six of the soldiers are ordered to take part in a special mission… as long as they don’t slaughter each other first. We will take the reins of a group of rebels, driven by their curiosity about the truth about their world and hunted down by the conflicting nations.
The Direct promises us a boundless world, and this means that as in the previous chapters also in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Aionios is none other than the name of theopen world to explore. As the tradition of level design of this type dictates, therefore, once we reach a certain place we will have the possibility to teleport there quickly. The linearity of our exploration depends exclusively on us: it will be the player who decides whether or not to activate one navigation function which will guide him to his next destination. Based on our choices, we may also avoid dangerous encounters.
The characters’ battle skills are called Techniques, and some of them can knock enemies to the ground or deal more damage depending on who executes them. You can also heal each other in the middle of a fight. Of course there are also Group assaultsas well as more powerful variants of these attacks. The former are called masterful techniques, the other fusion techniques. As evidence of the action RPG dynamics present in the game, each Technique will be associated with a different button. Each character can excel in attacking, defending or healing, and therefore his role must be properly exploited.
It wouldn’t be a long-lived title without many side quests to accompany him. With a world as boundless as Aionios, it is possible to proceed at your own pace even climbing steep slopes as high as the stakes in the conflict in which our six protagonists are embroiled. For this reason, the colony they allow us to shop, talk to the inhabitants of the place in question and, above all, accept missions. Instead, as for our knowledge of the characters, we can expand it into resting points, where a crafting mechanic will allow us to cook and craft gems with collected materials. By doing so, we will also have the opportunity to enhance our skills.
So let’s get to know them, these six handsome young men. Noah, the protagonist, comes from Keves and is a passer-by, or a psychic who acts as a spokesperson for the deceased. Also from Keves we also have Yuniea real peperino with brutal honesty. lance is the reliable big boy of the Keves trio, with a slow but deadly broadsword. The kind Miyo it is itself a legacy, but comes from the enemy nation, Agnus. Taion he is a strategist of Agnus, always skeptical and analytical. In the end, Sena promises to strike hard at the expense of his stature. All in all, a well-matched group!
Each team member has their own class, which will inevitably also influence behavior in battle. The most fitting example is the typical basic balanced character, the Swordsman. However, there are also many other specialized classes, which as we have already said can also excel in the care of their allies or in defense. The player will have free will over which of them to control in the middle of a fight, as well as change their class according to the needs of the team. And the secret to sorting one out the best, after all, is taking the time to experiment.
Plenty of RPGs allow your team to welcome the occasional guest, and this is certainly no exception. Apart from the six members of which we will take the reins, nothing will prevent us from hosting a seventh among the valiant inhabitants of Aionios. The Heroes in question boast unique classes, such as Guardian Commander, Raider, and War Medic. Of course, these team members are more than just “guest stars”: having them at our side further opens up an already rich array of strategic options, as thanks to them it is also possible to expand the combination of classes and Techniques we have. One of these Heroes was pixelated in Direct: how come?
Dragon Ball fans don’t want it, but the character fusions in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 are unique enough to boast a name of their own. This is the Uroborosor a new form that can be assumed by two characters united by a process of fusion called Tuning. Points earned in battle can further enhance these hybrid champions. Of course, joining forces is the order of the day in this title: it is only natural, therefore, that each Uroboros can take part in the Group Assaults along with the rest of their compatriots. Or even not necessarily “compatriots”, but … you understand.
If there’s one thing Monolith Soft has confirmed over the years, it’s that day one alone fits its ambition a little tight. For this reason, the Big N did not fail to announce a Expansion Pass with which the development team intends to expand the gaming experience until the end of 2023. The DLC will touch every aspect of the game over the course of four distinct packages. In fact, the contents include objects, costumes, color variations for clothes, new missions, new Heroes, new content for the story and much more. Available for pre-order from today (as well as the base game), the complete package costs thirty euros.
Not all Nintendo titles do this, but Xenoblade Chronicles 3 ended its personal Direct with the announcement of compatibility with amiibo. The use of the various figurines is minimal, with the exception (of course) of Shulk’s. The Swordsman class of Noah will in fact benefit from a replica of the Monad, or the weapon used by the clairvoyant at the center of the first title of the saga both in the aforementioned game and in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The game will be released on July 29but in addition to the pre-order already open now it is also possible to buy aedition for collectors su My Nintendo Store.
