Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Reveals Colony Ranking System

The official Xenoblade series’ Japan promotional Twitter account has provided more detailed character information for the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

The Colonies in this entry have a ranking system to seemingly determine their overall efficacy in the war efforts. Dirt, Silver, and Gold are the ranks’ labels, though specifics regarding what each tier provides in contrast to one another are not yet clear. However, newly arrived gear in their colony suggests that an individual likely of Silver Ranking is present, implying they’re there due to governmental orders.

Note that these Ranking terminology translations will certainly differ in the official localization.

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 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.
