Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Team Reveals Riku & Manana Plushes They Made; Mio’s Diary + Chibi Character Stickers Are a Japan Platinum Point Reward

Following the launch of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, the series official PR Twitter account revealed plushes the team made of Riku and Manana. They are quite cute. However, they are not for sale, and there is no word on whether that potential occurrence will ever transpire. But, of course, fans are already asking for that to be the case, along with desires for plushes of previous Nopon in the series, like Riki.

Additionally, Mio’s Diary with chibi character stickers has been revealed to be a 400 Platinum Point exchange gift for Japanese fans. There is currently no word on whether other regions of the world will have access to this item. Then again, it would probably sell out in less than 10 minutes, so maybe it’s for the best if it never comes westward.

Images of the Mio Diary reward and the not-for-sale plushes of Riku and Manana are viewable via our galleries below:

Mio art from the game’s character designer was also shared, viewable below. This illustration was originally on a Weekly issue of Famitsu, though littered with surrounding text:

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.
