Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Lets Players Approach Fallen Soldiers & Send Off Their Souls

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

When exploring the overworld and winning battles, players will sometimes see the corpses of fallen soldiers. After this disturbing visage is presented, Noah and Mio can perform their duty as Off-Seers to send their souls, seemingly to their nation’s Feronis. This act also serves to enhance the bonds the cast has with those fallen soldiers’ respective colonies, building a terrific sense of gameplay and story integration.

This concept immensely reminds me of the Sending that Summoners do in Final Fantasy X, and seeing it cohesively melded with actual gameplay is neat.

You can view the initial tweet sharing this significant information below:

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.
