Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Xenoblade 3 interview Noah Harry McEntire

Nintendo Everything recently had the opportunity to speak with Harry McEntire, who played the role of Noah in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. The RPG has been one of the biggest games of the year, and many fans would say that McEntire had a memorable performance.

During our discussion, we talked about the challenges involved, what was most memorable to record, and interest in returning to the role of Noah in the future. You can read our full interview below.

Xenoblade 3 difficulty differences

Nintendo Everything has created a new difficulty guide for Xenoblade Chronicles 3, which covers the differences between the options and more.

The game can be quite difficult to get into; the experience can be overwhelming, with the battle system being a particularly hectic element that new players have to contend with. However, Monolith Soft has implemented several different difficulty options in the game to combat this, whether you just want to cruise through the story or you want to challenge yourself to some more grueling fights – though sadly, the game doesn’t really detail what the differences between these Easy/Normal/Hard difficulties are beyond a basic “makes the game easier/more balanced/harder” text box. Hopefully this guide can clear that up for you, providing some actual numbers as well as some advice for picking between these three difficulty modes.

Nintendo has provided a new set of screenshots from the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Expansion Pass DLC Vol. 2.

Ino, a girl who looks mechanical, will be included as a Hero. Players that complete her quest can unlock her as a new Hero. Challenge Battles will also be added, and accessories and special outfits can be earned by challenging stronger and stronger enemies.

Nintendo and Monolith Soft have provided details about upcoming DLC for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 as part of the game’s Expansion Pass. Wave 2 launches October 13.

Ino will be available as a new Hero, and players can complete her request to have her join their party. Challenge Battles will also be added with consecutive battles against tough enemies. Accessories and special outfits can be earned by challenging stronger and stronger enemies.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 still has two more DLC drops to go. One of these, which is due out by April 30, includes a Challenge Battle mode against difficult enemies, a new hero character and accompanying quests, and new character outfits. The final DLC is planned to launch by the end of 2023 and is comprised of a brand new story scenario.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 spoilers

It’s been a while since the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and even though the game is massive, some of us already finished the experience. As it is with a JRPG like this, there’s usually a lot to talk about with regard to the story, exploration, combat and more.

That’s why today’s video is actually a – very long – discussion about Xenoblade Chronicles 3, full of spoilers. If you already played it, feel free to check the video down below and share your own opinions about the game.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 update 1.1.1

Original: A new 1.1.1 update has just released for Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and it fixes quite a few of the game’s more recently discovered bugs and glitches. Notably, it removes a softlock possible by beating a specific enemy early, fixes the cooking mechanic to make it functional again and makes certain previously unobtainable items now normally obtainable.

Here are the full patch notes for Xenoblade Chronicles 3’s version 1.1.1 update:

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 released a little over a month ago to near-universal acclaim. A part of the game that received a significant amount of praise was the characters and how well they were portrayed by their respective voice actors.

This praise from fans has not gone unnoticed, with several of the game’s voice actors having thanked the community for the compliments. Among these is Harry McEntire, the voice actor for main protagonist Noah, who has recently returned to Twitter to thank fans for their “outpouring of love” as a result of his performance.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 review

System: Switch
Release Date: July 29, 2022
Developer: Monolith Soft
Publisher: Nintendo


With five years between the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and 3, we’ve had plenty of time to devote ourselves to the world of Alrest and pick apart the differences and similarities between it and the world of the original Xenoblade Chronicles. With the Definitive Edition hitting Switch a mere couple of years ago, we’ve had the series fairly fresh on our minds while waiting for the next release. With side content like Torna: The Golden Country from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and the Future Connected content from Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition, there has been a lot to take in before getting to 3 – and that’s not counting those of us who also spent time with the stranded-on-Wii U entry of Xenoblade Chronicles X (a completely unrelated story, but with similar gameplay and an unconnected world.)

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.
