Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Highlights Erythia Sea, Totally Not Eryth Sea & Treasure Containers

The official Japanese Xenoblade series promotional account has shared new specific gameplay information for the upcoming Monolithsoft-developed Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

The Erythia Sea is highlighted as a clear homage to the Eryth Sea from the first game. To feasibly navigate this massive ocean, players will have to utilize a boat that is more akin to a makeshift abode. Additionally, containers can be found throughout the world. They can also be dropped from Keves and Agnus soldiers, and their locations are signaled by smoke.

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 this 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.
