Bringing together the futures of Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, this title will take players to the world of Aionios, home to two hostile nations.

Keves: a nation where mechanical technology was developed. Their armies are composed of units consisting mainly of combat vehicles. They use units of small, mobile weapons operated by soldiers riding them.

Agnus: a nation strong in ether, a magical technology. Their forces are built around units that specialise in ether combat, and they fight with small, mobile, autonomous weapons that use ether technology.

Six soldiers hailing from these nations join forces to learn the truth behind their conflict, setting their sights for Swordmarch, a land pierced by a giant sword.

Noah: One of the protagonists of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and a solider of Keves. Noah is also an “off-seer” who mourns for soldiers who’ve lost their lives on the battlefield.

Sena: This soldier is an ally of Mio and Taion. Despite her petite figure, Sena wields immense physical strength!

To battle!

Like in previous Xenoblade Chronicles games, battles start by facing enemies directly in the overworld. With six characters in your party, you’ll need to use each soldier’s strengths to your advantage, taking into account their position relative to the enemy. Characters you befriend on your adventure can also join you in battle, further increasing your strategic capabilities.

As you progress through Aionios, customise your party by changing characters' classes to better suit the situation at hand. If certain conditions are met during battle, each of the tag-team pairs, Noah and Mio, Lanz and Sena, Eunie and Taion can combine into a giant form called Ouroboros. Each Ouroboros has its own powerful moveset, and deciding when to transform can be the key to winning a battle!

Please note: Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is available with Japanese and English voiceover.
