To date, Nintendo and Monolith Soft have led the development of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 with much secrecy. The Nintendo Direct that aired in February left us with its announcement and its first trailer, but so far it’s the only time those responsible have spoken about the game.

The fact that the worlds of the different chapters of the saga are connected in some way makes us wonder if we will get to see any familiar faces at some point in the game. At the moment their first trailer has not resolved this issue, since in it they have only appeared on stage totally new characters.

Among all of them there will be six soldiers who will come from the two nations mentioned above, who in turn will star in this story. They will be exactly the following:


Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Noah

He aims to be the main character of all, a soldier from Keves and also an “Exme” who mourns the death of any soldier who falls on the battlefield.


Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Mio

The other great protagonist, an Agnus soldier who stands out for her peculiar ears. Thanks to her speed, she is able to easily dodge her opponents’ attacks while fighting with disc-shaped weapons. Also, just like Noah, she is also an Eximio.


Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Lanz

He is a lifelong friend of Noah’s and has always fought side by side with him as a Keves soldier. His strength allows him to wield a gigantic sword that also serves as a shield to protect his companions during combat.


Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Sena

A soldier of Agnus who may not seem dangerous due to her height, but is actually tremendously powerful as she is able to finish off her enemies thanks to a huge hammer.


Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Eunie

Friend of Noah and Lanz and also a soldier of Keves. In her case, she makes use of a Rifle Staff that allows her to heal any ally that has been damaged, although she also draws attention to the wings on her head.

Another of Agnus’s soldiers who uses weapons made of paper that are deadly. A strategist who uses his intellect to support Mio and Sena in anything.

Gameplay and game modes

The first trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 It has not shown any sequence related to the combats, but it is expected that they will show gameplay similar to that of previous installments and that they will be in real time. On the other hand, what is appreciated is that the places through which we will move will be the most impressive in open world form.

In this sense, we can see that there will be moments in which we will be taking the role of the different characters individually and others in which they will move in groups of up to a maximum of four members, putting a great focus on exploration.

On the other hand, although nothing has been indicated in this regard, the previous Xenoblade Chronicles were single player experiencesso it would be normal to think that this continuation follows the same steps.
