Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Introduces Hero Party Member Gray & Fashion Gear

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

The Hero Party Member, Gray, is introduced as a user of the Attacker Class, Metal Jaguar. He utilizes dual-pistols and drones for incredible range. Additionally, his attack power increases depending on how many hits he deals. Gray first encounters the party in combat, skillfully fending them off, though his success in doing so only serves to encourage Lanz’s efforts.

Fashion Gear is also highlighted, with players able to cosmetically alter the primary cast’s appearances to any Class’ attire. However, Fashion Gears are only unlocked after using a Class enough, so this acts as another way for players to prioritize diverse Class mastery.

Thanks to fan account @XenobladeEN for translating the name of Gray’s Class.

The initial tweets sharing this gameplay and character information are 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 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.
