Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Appears In 20 Minutes, Announces Expansion Pass – GameSpot

This Xenoblade Direct begins by enlightening us on the real challenges of the account in the next Monolith Soft. Going beyond the traditional conflict between the two countries, it would appear that the protagonists of the game are soldiers with 10 years of life, a decade in which they only fought. For example, Mio, the lead star, revealed that there are only three months left before she disappears. So the heroes want to not only transcend their military status but also get themselves out of this gearing that makes them disposable puppets.

The game, which doesn’t need to do the previous Xenoblades, takes place in the world of Aionios where the nations of Keves and Agnus fight to fill their “vital dial”, an unusual but reasonable resource given the context. Three soldiers from each side will have a rally that will encourage them to join forces and fight their real enemy.

Noah, Eunie and Lanz on one side, Mio, Taion and Sena on the other. These six refugees left the battlefield to reveal the truth about their world and their situation, in hopes of taking control of their fate. The world of Aionios features regions with a variety of sights that come as far as the eye can see, a signature of the saga. Built all over the place, the colonies serve as camps for each of the two warring nations, players can regain their energy there, shop, cut gems and stock up on quests.

Exploration sometimes seems daunting on a Xenoblade, discovering new areas has the effect of automatically opening landmarks that serve as teleportation points. Among the convenience options, there is also a route finding function, a GPS class to keep track of your next destination, or the possibility to change the time of day and night to deal with specific situations. monsters.

Fights still take place in a semi-automatic style that relies on positioning and management arts, skills provided by various controller buttons. Heroes take on the roles of attackers, defenders or healers, knowing that the player controls the character he or she chooses. In battles that are always prone to drag, it is better to consider the weaknesses of the enemies so as not to balance your target, knock it down, throw it in the air and crush it to the ground.

The system also relies on various interchangeable classes with unlockable master arts to be more complete in combat. The interest of master arts is that they remain accessible even after a class change, which allows a protector to use healing magic, for example. What’s more, “Heroes of Ainonios” can join the team as the 7th warrior, each of these heroes unlocking a unique class like Guardian Commander or War Medic, all of which are class accessible to six main characters.

Finally, and this is one of the particularities of this new opus, the protagonists have a transformation called Ouroboros, a powerful form born of a fusion between the two characters, always a man and a woman. This fusion called interlink will obviously only last for a while and the soul points gained in combat will further strengthen Ouroboros. We can see that Ouroboros have a different shape (male or female) depending on which character controls the mixing time.

The icing on the cake, if you like salty pastries, Nintendo ended its presentation by confirming the existence of a 30 euro expansion pass to the program:
