Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Emphasizes Mio’s Diary & Combative Adequacy

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

The primary heroine, Mio, has been highlighted as her default class, Defender. It emphasizes evasion, counters, and drawing in enemy aggro. It perfectly complements Noah’s default class, Swordfighter. Further, it is also worth noting that characters can change their classes with their cosmetics even altering.

Mio is a year older than the rest of the party, meaning she is heavily reliable. This trait is further emphasized by her simultaneously stern nature and kindness. Additionally, she has a hobby of writing in a diary, which I sure hope isn’t implying what I think it’s implying…

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.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is releasing for Nintendo Switch on July 29, 2022.
