Monolith Soft shares Xenoblade Chronicles 3 message, another tease of the future
Posted on August 7, 2022 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch
In an email sent to customers in Japan, Nintendo shared a message from Monolith Soft’s Tetsuya Takahashi, the senior director of Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
We’ve translated the full note below, which includes another tease about plans for the future. There’s just a slight story spoiler about the overall series, so keep that in mind before proceeding.
Greetings to everyone who purchased Xenoblade Chronicles 3. This is Takahashi from Monolith Soft.
Thanks to your support, we’ve released the third Xenoblade title, twelve years after the original Xenoblade was released for the Wii in 2010. Xenoblade 3 has been called the culmination of the whole series up until now, and it truly is the culmination. We at Monolith have put everything we have cultivated over the past twelve years into it.
It is also a stopping point to me. This title depicts the conclusion of the Xenoblade story that began with Klaus’s experiment.
While it is a conclusion, that does not mean it is the end of the Xenoblade series. It is just a stopping point in my mind. I think that everyone who played this title and the additional stories in the Expansion Pass can imagine what lies in the future for Xenoblade.
I have one recommendation for how to play Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Some things are marked by a ? on the game map. Even if you are in the middle of progressing the main story after finding the ? marks, try taking a detour. There are many encounters waiting there.
Thank you for your continued support of Xenoblade Chronicles 3!
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is currently available on Switch, along with Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition.
