Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Character Designer Shares Noah Art to Celebrate Soundtrack Release

The character designer for Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Masatsugu Saito, has shared an illustration of protagonist Noah to celebrate the game’s soundtrack release. The artist previously shared multiple celebratory illustrations leading up to the game’s release, including one depicting the entire main playable cast.

Most recently, Saito shared an illustration of Mio to commemorate Xenoblade Chronicles 3’s first anniversary.

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.

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.
