The developers behind The Xenoblade Chronicles have assured fans that the series will continue after the upcoming third instalment of the franchise, Xenoblade Chronicles 3. The announcement came as part of an official interview that was published by Nintendo, despite being previously labeled as “the culmination of the series”.
Xenoblade Chronicles developer Genki Yokota was the one to make the official comment during the interview, when asked if fans would ever see more from the Xenoblade series. Yokota replied that “it will still go on”.
The response from Yokota was surprising since he had previously stated that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 would be the “culmination of the series”. Following his statement that it would carry on after the third instalment, he continued on to say that he wanted to keep it going for “as long as possible”.
The planned DLC for the game was also mentioned in the interview, particularly with regards to the content of the story DLC. It was stated that the DLC will have “quite a high volume of content that will not let [us] down”.
“We will be adding a new story at the end of the expansion pass, and we are thinking of making its volume of content as large as Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country.
We hope that those who enjoyed that content, as well as newcomers, will pick it up.”
GLITCHED’s editor-in-chief, Marco, stated that while it wasn’t his personal favourite, this was probably one of the best RPGs you could play at the moment.
“Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is a masterclass RPG even though I didn’t enjoy most of what it offers. I am just a bit picky with combat styles and exploration but that doesn’t mean the game is bad… In fact, it could be one of the best RPGs you can play this year. You’ll likely spend over 100 hours in this game if you wanted to and it will all be time well-spent.”
