Nintendo UK has announced that the extra contents of the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Collector’s Edition (everything except for the game itself) are expected to be delivered in Europe in Fall 2022.
However, shipping for the Collector’s Edition items will be free, and the actual game will still be provided on release. No precise date was provided, but this timing is especially notable since the game doesn’t release until July 29, 2022, so there will be a few months of delay before the entirety of the package is granted.
There is currently no word on whether North America will be given the same shipment window.
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. Additional seven characters will also be available during specific moments of the journey.
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 new trailer reveals characters have a mighty Ouroboros form, which allows them to assume the form of powerful oversized entities in battle.
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.
