It seems as if every other news post about games is a delay. We’re pleased (and shocked) to report that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is now releasing several months early. The new release date for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is July 29. Check out the new trailer above.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was originally announced during the Nintendo Direct earlier this year. It was the big surprise announcement at the end of the Direct, and included a tentative release date of September.
The trailer dropped some big info for the RPG threequel (which is actually the fourth main game in the series). Where its predecessors featured three-person parties, in XC3 you’ll be able to control a much larger team of six in battle. Each party member has their own class, with strengths and weaknesses. But characters can also change classes throughout the story, allowing for a fully customizable party.
The reason for the increased party size is due to the new Interlink system. Tag-team pairs of specific characters can trigger the Interlink system during battle to transform into a single large mech creature called Ouroboros. Ouroboros are powerful giants with unique moves and powers.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will release on July 29. A Special Edition will be available exclusively via the My Nintendo Store, and includes a 250+ page art book. The RPG is rated T for Teen.
