Nintendo just dropped a surprise new trailer for Xenoblade Chronicles 3: Future Redeemed, the final bit of DLC for the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Expansion Pass. It’s coming on April 25th, which is next week!
Peep at the trailer and more details below. Longtime fans of the series will certainly find many reasons to squee like I did (and am currently doing).
Set before the events of the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 game, players join a cast of new and familiar characters in an original story scenario that connects all three installments in the Xenoblade Chronicles series. Future Redeemed also features new battle mechanics, such as Unity Combo, where two characters can attack in unison.
From Nintendo Japan, here’s the artwork of the main characters of Xenoblade Chronicles: Future Redeemed. We’ll update you regarding character names when we get confirmation, but I’ll leave the speculation to you for now, readers.

When scanning the Mythra amiibo in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, the sword for Noah’s Swordfighter class will match Mythra’s Aegis Sword. The Aegis sword weapon skins can be used by all players after meeting a condition with a Patch that will be released in the future.
