Review: Xenoblade Chronicles 3 continues Switch’s incredible JRPG run

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 delivers a massive world, and more than enough story and character to fill it, combined with the series’ most reactive combat system to date. While certainly a monster commitment, Aionios is an incredible place to live for a month or two.

  • Class-driven combat is perfect mix of accessibility and depth
  • A huge cast of likeable heroes to meet and recruit
  • Another killer Yasunori Mitsuda/ACE soundtrack
  • Vast amount of ideas carefully introduced and tutorialized
  • Series fans get more connective tissue to enjoy this time
  • The suits feel lumbering and broad
