Today (22) Nintendo released the introduction program “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” of its new work “Xenoblade Chronicles 3”, explaining in detail the characters, background and system in the game.
“Xenoblade Chronicles 3” tells the story of two countries “Corvis” and “Angnus” who take each other’s lives in order to fill their “Bell of Fire”. The protagonists played by the players are from these two hostile countries. They were originally enemies. They met in a secret mission. At the same time, they encountered a mysterious event and bound each other’s destiny. They never knew each other. Chased by countries on both sides, find a solution to the world, and face the real enemy.
Inheriting the tradition of the series, “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” is also a world that is too big to hell, with all kinds of natural features, and all kinds of wild creatures, and also has soldiers at war between the two countries. This time, you can see the so-called “colonial” appearance of the town. Like the previous work, NPCs have interpersonal relationships between them, and also have functions such as shops, cooking, making orbs, communicating, and undertaking tasks.
The game has a built-in navigation system, so that players who are easily lost will no longer get lost. In addition, functions such as teleportation, time adjustment and ecological impact in the previous work are still built in.
In terms of combat, occupations are divided into three categories: “attacker”, “defender”, and “healer”. The following categories are also subdivided into various occupations. For example, the attackers include the “Gladiator” with a sword and the “Breaker” with a hammer. “. Although the protagonists have preset occupations, they can also use other people’s occupations. With the upgrade of occupations, they can obtain “Proficient Combat Skills”, which are not restricted by the current occupation.
This time, some guest roles were also disclosed. As the seventh person, they also have their own occupations. After joining the protagonist group, these occupations will become the occupations of the protagonists, so it is obviously necessary to be proficient in various occupations. , will be the focus of this game’s battle, and the part that needs “farmers” the most.
In the actual battle, players can switch roles and occupations at any time. Like the previous game, they mainly focus on combat skills. In addition, there are also combos (balance→down→knockdown→down), and paired battles with partners. Use the “Fusion Combat Technique” to launch a “Chain Attack” that can deal massive damage with multiple partners at one time.
There is also a brand-new system in this game. The two-person “Ouroboros” are combined. The six people in the game are divided into three groups. The combined Ouroboros have powerful combat skills and will end when the time is up. Since the Ouroboros are a combination of two people, the same combination also has two types, which will change the appearance and the combat skills that can be used at the same time.
Transforming Ouroboros can also be used with the above-mentioned “chain attack”, which is likely to become the most powerful single-wave damage in the game.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will be released exclusively on Nintendo Switch on July 29. The official also announced the expanded season pass. In addition to new equipment, colors, battles, and heroes participating in the battle, a new original story will be added at the end of 2023. And the picture of the expanded season pass is the Gathering of Divine Swords of the third series of works… What does it mean?
