Nintendo has premiered a new Nintendo Direct focusing solely on Xenoblade Chronicles 3, dropping nearly a half-hour of new information ahead of the game’s July 29 release.
The presentation revealed the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Expansion Pass, adding over a year’s worth of additional content for $30. The pass will include special color variants on the game’s launch day, two packs including new heroes, quests, and challenges, and a story expansion set to be released by the end of 2023.
Amiibo support was also confirmed for XC3, allowing players to scan every Amiibo for extra items. The Shulk amiibo contains an additional perk, turning Noah’s sword into the Monado from the original Xenoblade Chronicles when scanned.
