The character designer for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Masatsugu Saito, has shared an illustration of Pyra and Mythra from the former, celebrating the duo’s new Amiibo figures.
This artwork isn’t exactly new, as it was posted in December of last year to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. However, this new iteration has updated text with “amiibo” written out to be more context-sensitive for the occasion.
In case you missed it, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was recently updated to version 2.1.0, implementing the new Pyra and Mythra Amiibo functionality. Cosmetic versions of their sword can be obtained this way, though you can also get them from a new Nopon NPC if you have fulfilled certain criteria.
You can view Masatsugu Saito’s artwork commemorating the new Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Amiibo below:
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.
