Through the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC Japanese official website, Nintendo revealed that the Community Board from Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country will make a return. Additionally, the Collectopaedia from the original Xenoblade Chronicles and a new Enemypaedia will appear as new community systems in the DLC. These systems will grant the player Affinity Points, and they can be used to upgrade the character’s abilities and stats.
In Future Redeemed, players can earn Affinity Points through various methods like exploring, meeting new people, collecting items, and defeating enemies. You can take a better look at some of the details about Affinity Points, and the Community Board shared in the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC Japanese official website below.
The Community Board will make a return, and it seems to work as it did in Torna – The Golden Country. During the course of Future Redeemed, players will interact with different people in the world of Aionios, and will be able to help them with problems. This will grant Affinity Points, and add them to the Community Board. It is unclear if reaching a certain level in the Community Board will be required to progress in the main story.
The Enemypaedia is a new feature similar to the Enemy Guide from Xenoblade Chronicles X. After a monster is defeated, it will be registered in the Enemypaedia. Similarly, the Collectopaedia will register the different items characters can encounter in the field. Affinity Points will be granted to players after collecting a certain number of each item, and after defeating a certain number of each type of monster.
Nintendo recently shared new details about Matthew and his partner A, two new playable characters in the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is immediately available on the Nintendo Switch. The Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC releases on April 25, 2023.
