Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Expansion Pass Volume 2 Launching October; New Hero Challenge & Outfits

The new Hero character is Ino, a Defender who evades enemy attacks and retaliates in turn. She also has a unique customization mode called Inolize.

The trailer for this expansion content is viewable below:

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 ties 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 now available for Nintendo Switch.
