The established trend of grassy plains, an assortment of characters and iconic imagery in the background, continues…
With Xenoblade Chronicles 3 still slated for release sometime in September 2022, Nintendo have not said anything about the game, since February 2022. Yet, now with five months until release, it has been discovered new key art has been created for the game and it is Nintendo of America we can thank for this goof, thanks to a discovery on their official site.
I think Nintendo of America did a goof, they might've accidentally uploaded new key art to the Xenoblade 3 website pic.twitter.com/u63JQsm88a— ⛩MB⛩ (Composer/作曲家) (@MBgov1133) April 16, 2022
What’s interesting about the new key art is twofold. The first being its a huge improvement over the first key art shared for Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and secondly, how it ties together elements old and new, thanks to the likes of the familiar sights if grassy plans, key characters looking outwards, a magnificent blue sky view and striking imagery in the background.
Only the striking imagery, as fans will recognise, is the Titan, Uraya from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles’ Mechonis Sword. Its certainly an interesting mash up of something old, new, borrowed and blue. (Wedding proposal from Monolith Soft perhaps?)
Joking aside, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is one of the biggest releases this year and one we can not wait for.
