Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Introduces The Lone Exile Combat Maniac, Hero Party Member Ashera; Enemy Combat Siding Revealed

Nintendo has shared more gameplay and character information for the upcoming vast Monolithsoft-developed JRPG, Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

Throughout the world of Aionios, players will encounter groups of foes fighting each other. A side can be fought alongside during these instances, with both choices granting unique rewards. Choosing which side is more worth the effort of temporarily allying with will be one of the many combat-related choices players must make. On an unrelated note, Unique Monsters can be rechallenged by examining their tombstone for grinding if one desires it. This functionality was also in previous games.

Additionally, the Hero Party member, Ashera, is highlighted as a user of the Lone Exile Class, which is part of the Defender umbrella. She utilizes a sword with dual blades and gathers aggro from enemies. Further, she can counterattack when allies are in danger. Ashera is a native Keves celebrity and combat enthusiast, embracing the battlefield in enemy territory. However, she is feared by many because of her apparent indifference toward the deaths of her comrades as well as the peril her own life consistently faces.

The initial tweets sharing this plethora of gameplay and character information are viewable below:

We’ll keep updating you all on any vital Xenoblade Chronicles 3 news.

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 for the game will tie 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.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3  is releasing for Nintendo Switch on July 29, 2022.
