The official Japanese Xenoblade series promotional account has shared new specific gameplay information regarding the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
Following the reveal of cooking debuting in the game, dining areas have been introduced. After cooking dishes with the Nopon Manana, which grant various buffs such as increased experience points, the party takes a break and devours their concoctions. Manana may also be inspired to cook some brand new food as well. There’s not much else information to parse here other than tank-top Eunie, which is quite a sight.
However, it is worth noting that these dining areas are only found at some resting spots, implying that they won’t be at every one. This design decision might make the choice of when to eat more strategically, though you are also able to fast travel to any resting point. So, maybe dining areas are just dependent on environmental context.

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 new trailer reveals characters have a mighty Ouroboros form, which allows them to assume the form of powerful oversized entities in battle.
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.
