Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Gets a Nintendo Direct This Week

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Direct

Fancy filling your brain with some Xenoblade Chronicles 3 information? Then tune into tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct.

The open world action-RPG is set for a July 29th release, earlier than was initially planned. Based on what we’ve so far, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is going to follow the formula of previous Xenoblade games – open world combat and exploration and a faintly off-putting futuristic setting.

This Nintendo Direct (which is set to run for twenty minutes) should shed some light on just how Xenoblade Chronicles 3 differs from its predecessors.  We don’t expect developer Monolith Soft to have shaken things up an much but at the very least they’ll be trying to explain why this new entry is worth picking up.

So, you can expect a glimpse of a few new features, tweaked combat and so on. Like Xenoblade Chronicles 2, this is a Nintendo Switch exclusive so publisher Nintendo will have a significant stake in its success. So how, then, do you get to watch the Direct?

To watch it live you need to to tune in Nintendo’s YouTube channel tomorrow, Wednesday 6th June, at 7:00AM PT, 10:00AM PT, or 3:00PM BST. The stream will also almost certainly be available on Nintendo’s YouTube channel afterwards if you miss it.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
