Xenoblade Chronicles 3 by Monolithsoft is finally here and whilst series veterans are probably well on their way through the game at a comfortable pace, series newcomers may find things a little overwhelming. To help them along, Nintendo UK has put together a rather useful top ten of “spoiler-free” tips that explains some of the game’s mechanics and features. We have highlighted a couple of the tips below.
3: Finding your way around
Feeling lost or just eager to push on with the main story? Pressing the ZL Button and Y Button will generate a bright red line showing you the shortest route to your next destination. It’s sure to come in handy when navigating Aionios’ huge and diverse landscapes.
6: Practice makes perfect
JRPGs are known for having deep, complex battle systems, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is no different! If you need a refresher, check out “Training Drills” in the System menu to get yourself up to speed on the fundamentals of battle, such as using cancelling to the fullest or how to pull off combos. You’re sure to come away with a new trick or two up your sleeve!
8: Equip your party in a jiffy!
There are so many ways to make your party fighting fit, and with six characters to manage at any given time, there’s a lot to think about. To make things easier, press the Y Button on the Character menu and – bish bash bosh – the selected character will be automatically equipped with the best Arts, Skills, Gems and Accessories at their disposal.
