Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Showcases Attack Cancelling

The official Japanese Xenoblade series promotional account has shared new specific gameplay information regarding the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

When in battle, utilizing an Art right as another one collides with an enemy produces an effect called Attack Cancelling. This technique causes a ring to briefly encircle the character, signaling that the Chain Attack gauge will build further. This mechanic has been used in previous Xenoblade Chronicles games, so it’s cool to see it return as it encourages constant battle attention and satisfying timing.

We’ll keep updating you all on any significant 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 the 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.
