Japanese outlet Gamebiz has just recently published a new article detailing a recent financial report of developer Monolith Soft, for the fiscal year ending in March 2023. According to the data that was provided to them, the company made around 800 million yen in profits, which is roughly 97.8% higher when compared to the previous fiscal year’s 404 million yen.
If you aren’t aware, Monolith Soft is a subsidiary of Nintendo, and some of their notable titles include the Xenosaga and the Baten Kaitos series. More recently, they were responsible for the development of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and also participated in the development of big-hit Nintendo titles such as Splatoon 3 and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 tells the story of protagonists Noah and Mio contending with a conflict between the nations of Keves and Agnus. 6 characters will be the crux of the experience, and the broad concept of “life” will be the title’s central theme.
The narrative ties in elements and plotlines from the future of the prior two mainline games, Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Flutes seem to play an integral role in this title’s premise.
The summoning of this powerful new form depends on a new Interlink system. If specific conditions are met, characters can combine into this mech, and choosing well when to transform should be key to the more difficult battles. Another system revealed is a class change option, allowing players to customize their parties’ builds further than in previous games.
