Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Emphasizes Lanz’s Bodybuilding & Combative Adequacy

The official Japanese Xenoblade series promotional account has shared new specific gameplay and characterization information regarding the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

One of the party members, Lanz, is highlighted as the Heavy Guarder Class, which is assumedly a more defense-focused variant of Defenders. He excels at protecting the party with the massive shields he wields and performing aggro attraction toward powerful foes. Further, Lanz’s hobby is showcased to be bodybuilding, a skill he utilizes to protect those he holds dear more adequately. However, he’s not all that bright in the realms of academia, making him more reliable for cases dependent on brawn.

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 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.
