The power of the Aegis has returned! With the launch of the Pyra and Mythra amiibos comes a new update for Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Updating the game to version 2.1.0 allows users to scan the new amiibos and add Pyra’s and Mythra’s Aegis swords to the Swordfighter class’s arsenal. If you aren’t familiar, Pyra and Mythra play very important roles in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Their swords aren’t the only Amiibo functionality in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, by the way. Players who have the Shulk amiibo already have the option to scan it and wield the Monado from Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition as the Swordfighter class. Unfortunately, all three legendary swords are purely cosmetic.
