Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Details Art Combo Variety & Party Member AI Control

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

In this entry, Art Combos comprise 2 distinct patterns; the classic Break, Topple, Daze, and the new Burst. The latter mitigates oppositional aggression and heightens item drop rate. Additionally, the Break, Topple, Launch, and Smash combo from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has returned for greater combative variety. Moreover, players will be able to direct allies’ actions to prioritize Burst or Smash combos, leading to fewer chance-infused bouts.

Thanks to fan account @XenobladeEN for translating these numerous points regarding combat.

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.
