Are we getting Xenoblade Chronicles 3 news soon?

Could we be facing another surprise Xenoblade announcement from Nintendo? Fans think Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is right around the corner!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is a story-driven action role-playing game that was a triumphant return to narrative-focused gameplay for the Xeno series.

It may have featured a new cast of characters and a new setting, but that didn't impact how well it did.

It was applauded by critics for its narrative and combat system, leaving fans wanting more. Well, more and a sequel, of course.

Below, we've got everything we know about the new rumours that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is going to be revealed soon.

ADVENTURE - Despite its' narrative focus, there's still a lot to explore

Yasunori Mitsuda is reportedly working on a "large scale recording" in April. Although he is known for other projects, the last major project he did work on was Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

There is little to no news about whether Xenoblade Chronicles 3 would follow the narrative work laid out by the recent Xenoblade title. It could introduce another set of characters and a new setting.

However, it might not. Even if it did, there's no reason why Mitsuda's work couldn't be applied to the next title in the series.
