Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Shares Launch Trailer; Combat-Beginner Tips & Screenshot Capturing Detailed

Nintendo has shared the launch trailer for the recently released Xenoblade Chronicles 3, highlighting this fourth entry’s primary cast alongside various unspecified contexts and explorative segments. Moreover, despite the game now being out, the PR Twitter account is still tweeting out information, so we’re also still on that grind.

Players wishing to capture screenshots should do so by pressing L & R simultaneously rather than using the Switch’s capture button. This is because the in-game version of image captures provides results without the game UI, unlike the built-in Nintendo Switch method. Further, users can hold down the ZL button and rotate the right stick to adjust perception to gain better camera angles.

The main menu houses separate Training and Tips menus for those yearning for combat refreshers. These avenues intricately dive into whichever mechanics beginners may have struggled to fully comprehend. Speaking of beginner-friendly systems, players can choose between Easy, Normal, and Hard, with the former-most catered to those primarily seeking story progression. Lastly, to help speed up the more inconsequential fights, auto-battle can be initiated with the – button, though this can’t be triggered during bouts against bosses or Unique Monsters.

You can view the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 launch trailer and initial tweets detailing each of the aforementioned points 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 now available for Nintendo Switch.
