Xenoblade Chronicles 3 announced

Nintendo has revealed that Monolith Soft’s long-running Xenoblade series will continue with the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 for Switch in September 2022.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is set in the world of Aionios where two nations are at war. Keves is a nation of mechanical might, while Agnus makes use of ether in battle.

Executive director Tetsuya Takahashi has shared a few details about the sequel, including that team came up with the ending visual from the reveal trailer before development of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 began. Despite the clear connections to the previous two entries, Takahashi states that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 can be enjoyed by “those who will be playing a Xenoblade Chronicles game for the first time”.

The reveal trailer certainly leaves a lot of unanswered questions, so it’s a good thing that fans have less than a year to wait before the game’s release — expect more details to follow as we get closer to launch in September.
