The character designer for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Masatsugu Saito, has shared an illustration of Pyra from the former, celebrating the game’s sixth anniversary.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is currently available on Nintendo Switch. The prequel game, Torna – The Golden Country, is also available as a standalone experience. The story of the former follows protagonist Rex in the world of Alrest, where he becomes a Driver bound to the Aegis Pyra and Mythra as they seek the entrance to the fabled land of Elysium.

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, duos of characters can combine into a mech, and choosing when to transform is key to the more difficult battles. Another system is a class change option, allowing players to customize their parties’ builds further than in previous games.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is now available for Nintendo Switch.
