We are not going to go there by four paths, Xenoblade Chronicles it’s good. However, having the chance to play there in Europe, well, it was not won. To realize this, you should know that the first Xenoblade Chronicles released in 2010 on Wii in Japan should never have left the borders of Japan. In the end, the massive mobilization of Western players through a petition called Operation Rainfall made it possible to avoid this disaster. This petition allowed two other JRPGs, Pandora’s Tower and The Last Story developed by Mistwalker, studio created by Hironobu Sakaguchi, father of the Final Fantasy saga.
Today, Xenoblade Chronicles has become one of Nintendo’s most important JRPG licenses. Proof, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was one of the Nintendo Switch’s biggest releases in its launch year. Monolith Soft, the studio behind the saga, notably participated in the development of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to bring their expertise to open worlds. The icing on the cake, Shulk, protagonist of the original game, as well as Pyra and Mythra, the heroines of the second opus, are playable characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate It is therefore no surprise that Nintendo gave the green light to the developers to produce this Xenoblade Chronicles 3 which looked particularly ambitious when first shown during a Nintendo Direct that took place in February.
Here is Xsable’s verdict, in a quiz which earned him the rating of 18/20 :
With Xenoblade Chronicles 3, the Nintendo Switch welcomes a new essential role-playing game in its catalog. Far from the lightness of tone of the second episode, the title delivers a captivating scenario, rich in twists and emotions, aided by a beautiful soundtrack. By taking up the basics of the two previous games, the gameplay gains in dynamism and benefits from many effective and complex mechanics, even if the fights suffer from readability problems like the other games in the series. And if the exploration through vast panoramas remains as pleasant as ever, this pleasure is still affected by a technique which displays visual shortcomings on several occasions. Not enough to spoil this memorable adventure exclusive to Nintendo’s hybrid console either.
