The official Japanese Xenoblade series promotional account has shared new specific gameplay information regarding the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
Mio, the primary heroine, has markedly high evasion, with skills that direct enemy aggression towards her, like Butterfly Edge. Additionally, she even has skills that benefit from being the focus of enemy fire, with her attack art, Air Fang, correlatively stronger under that circumstance. Still, her combative arsenal will assuredly widen in complexity when utilizing her Ouroborus transformation with fellow party member Noah.
It seems like Mio will likely be a pseudo-permanent fixture in most party setups since redirecting enemy aggro to specific characters who can withstand it is a tried and true, paramount strategy that tends to always work across these games.
- Fast travel, landmarks, and Field Skills are confirmed to be returning.
- View Noah’s recently unveiled combative capabilities.

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.
