Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is coming this September

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was announced during today’s Nintendo Direct presentation. The trailer was the final announcement during the Direct and showed off various characters, as well as an aged and weathered titan that acts as continents in the Xenoblade Chronicles series. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will be released on the Nintendo Switch this September.

During the Nintendo Direct today, the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 announcement showed off new characters, possibly an old character, and some gameplay. This is part of the Xeno metaseries, with the original game in this particular series, Xenoblade Chronicles, released for the Nintendo Wii in 2010. That game was followed by Xenoblade Chronicles X in 2015 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 in 2017.

The trailer showed off a myriad of characters interacting and fighting with each other. Homs, Nopon, and High Entia are the confirmed races to be involved in the story; the Machina were not shown off in the trailer.

The trailer also teased a masked High Entia that could potentially be Melia, a pivotal character in the Xenoblade Chronicles. Gameplay mainly showcased traversal and not combat, though it can be assumed that it will be similar to the combat found in Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Face Mechons, a group of evil cyborgs that were some of the main antagonists in Xenoblade Chronicles, are confirmed in the game, but it is unknown what connection they will have to the story of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and the ramifications of the narrative in Xenoblade Chronicles.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will be available this September for Nintendo Switch.

It's been over a decade since we got the last new 2D Mario game, but that dry spell has finally come to an end. Super Mario Bros. Wonder has appeared and will give us a brand new side-scrolling adventure through the Mushroom Kingdom. While 3D Mario titles tend to get most of the excitement and praise from fans, there's no denying that the 2D games are just as creative and fun in their own ways. Even though they all follow the same basic formula of running through a stage in an attempt to reach the flagpole at the end, they all put fun and creative twists on how you get there that keep each title fresh. If you've been wondering what Mario's next 2D adventure will hold, here's everything we know about Super Mario Bros. Wonder.
