About Xenoblade Chronicles 3: Aionios is the backdrop to an endless conflict between two opposing nations: Keves and Agnus. Through a chance encounter, a group of six soldiers hailing from both rival nations resolve to put aside their differences and work together to expose a new threat – far greater than that of their ceaseless battle. Players can join Noah, Mio and their friends as they traverse epic landscapes, battle ferocious creatures and fight to break the never-ending cycle of violence that binds their homelands.
Like in previous Xenoblade Chronicles games, battles start by facing enemies directly in the field. Players can control Noah’s party of six and meet additional characters during the adventure that can join the party as support characters. Each fighter has their own role in battle, which allows for diverse strategies. Their class influences how characters battle, and they can harness powerful abilities, called Arts, to strive for victory. Each of the specific tag-team pairs in the party can also make use of the Interlink system and combine into a giant form called Ouroboros.
The fourth and final volume of the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Expansion Pass DLC, “Future Redeemed”, launches on 26th April. It introduces a new story scenario with new and returning characters and locations to discover. Additionally, the release date for the Pyra/Mythra amiibo double pack has been announced and new amiibo figures for Noah and Mio have been revealed.
