Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will arrive on Nintendo Switch this July, and ahead of the big release, the official Japanese social account has been sharing new clips of the game and movie.
The latest footage was uploaded yesterday, and while it’s just a glimpse of a cinematic, it’s still interesting to see some new footage of the much-anticipated release. this. This is via Twitter:
If you’re wondering what exactly it’s about, here’s a translation of @AegisFloral via the unofficial Xenoblade Twitter account @XenobladeEN. It shows what appears to be a younger Ethel, who is now an enemy, saving Noah from Keves.
“Ethel once saved Noah from Keves when he was just a child soldier of Agnus. Noah and the others looked forward to Ethel from then on. So why is Aionios attacking them as enemies now.. .?”
Here is the current image of Ethel:
“Military commander “Colonial 4” of Keves. Dual sword with a slender sword. “
As noted in a follow-up tweet, there are some pre-screened footage, which again mentions how you will be able to swap between characters while in the field (translation again provided by @AegisFloral):
“You can switch between Noah or the others at any time on the go. Switch to your favorite team member and move around the field!”
