Gaming News Xenoblade Chronicles 3: a lavish new artwork for the next big RPG on the Nintendo Switch
Still scheduled for release next September, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is very discreet at the moment. While at the moment we only know the main lines of this new title, Nintendo has just shared, probably by mistake, a stunning image that brings together the six protagonists of this third work.
A new opus that is still mysterious
For now, we’ll have to settle for little concern Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Nintendo is taking its time and has given us very little information so far, despite an enticing trailer. In this new story, the futures are meant to be connected Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, the conflict between the nations of Keves and Agnus rages on. The story revolves around two main protagonists who represent both sides: Noah on one side and Mio on the other.
Each of these protagonists is accompanied by two acolytes. Lanz and Eunie are Noah’s allies, while Sena and Taion accompany Mio. We don’t know exactly how these different protagonists are brought together, but it seems clear that their destinies are linked, as suggested by the new image erroneously shared by Nintendo a priori.
Behind the fans’ hope is a mistake by Nintendo
Very similar to the first Xenoblade Chronicles 3 poster shared by Big N, this new artwork features the six protagonists gathered side by side in an idyllic setting reminiscent of the visuals of the previous two works. If this work of art is particularly successful, its publication by the Japanese giant, which is working to masterfully control its communications, seems rather premature.
I think Nintendo of America made a mistake, they may have accidentally uploaded new key graphics to the Xenoblade 3 website pic.twitter.com/u63JQsm88a

Thus, this picture would have been accidentally published on Nintendo’s American site. It has since been removed and is not available on either the US side or the French side. A small “blunder” that shouldn’t cost the company too dearly, on the contrary, should have given even the most impatient fans a light amuse-bouche.
