Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Reportedly Final Stages in Development

Recent articles

According to a new report, the supposedly new sequel Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is already in development, but there’s a catch.

According to media outlet Fanbyte, an earlier interview with actress Jenna Coleman, Melia’s voice actress in the first Xenoblade Chronicles 10 years ago, slipped a rather interesting detail about a possible sequel. She appeared in a video chat with YouTube channel Din’s Meteorite and talked about various topics and even her time with voice acting on XC1 and with the remaster of XC Definite Edition.

The interview was actually uploaded two months ago, but it wasn’t until recently that some fans noticed a particular detail that Coleman shared. She more or less confirmed that the developers plan to do a sequel in the future and even said that if she was allowed to say so.

Today, Fanbyte’s sources confirm that there is indeed a sequel, a Xenoblade Chronicles 3 in the works. It was revealed that it is now in its final stages of development, but the release date may be pushed back.

It was revealed that this sequel is a continuation of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but that it is set in a distant future where most of the human characters in part 2 have already died. There will be returning characters from the original and XC2, but these will be the ones that outlast humans. It made sense that Coleman would have known this, as she may have already pre-recorded lines.

The sources revealed the reason for the delay. It was supposed to be announced earlier this year and could be announced later this year, but with the global pandemic it became difficult to continue developing and optimizing for the Nintendo Switch. One of their improvements for this sequel is that there are more character models on one screen compared to previous titles.

No official confirmation yet from game developer Monolith Soft and publisher Nintendo that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 exists. Take this report with a grain of salt for now.
