During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, the publisher announced a new upcoming project by Monolith Soft, Xenoblade Chronicles 3. The narrative for the game will tie in elements and plotlines from the prior two mainline games, Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Flutes seem to play an integral role in the title’s premise. A plethora of combat footage and story dialogue is showcased.

Players witness the journeys 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. Additionally, this new world connects the futures of Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is releasing for Nintendo Switch on September 2022.
