Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Showcases Defender’s Talent Art, Gemini Strike

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

Following the reveal of Talent Arts returning in this entry, elaboration was provided regarding the Talent Art of the Defender Class, Gemini Strike. This strategic skill allows the user to induce enemy aggro upon themselves while simultaneously lowering the impacted enemy’s accuracy. It’s a double benefit that benefits all members of the party.

Still, it’ll likely be best to make sure the Defender is adequately prepared to endure a physical onslaught on the off-chance that the accuracy decrease doesn’t work as effectively as expected. Further, it is worth noting that while Mio is a Defender by default, characters can change their class, with their cosmetics even altering.

Information regarding Class changes and their respective Talent Arts will undoubtedly be revealed as we approach the title’s release roughly two months from now.

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.
