The new Xenoblade Chronicles 3 patch focuses on tuning the Staying Power Art of the Stalker class. Staying Power deploys a Field of Effect that grants the Art Follow-Up buff to members of the party. Art Follow-Up deals damage equal to 2 times the attack stat of the character who set the Field.

Previously, when using Fusion Arts within the Field would cause the Follow-Up Attack damage to be dealt to members of the party. The patch has fixed this and now the ability works as intended.

Additionally, the patch fixes an issue for players that did not own the Expansion Pass where the Special Hero BGM, Audio environment in Audio Setting, and Notifications would not display in the menus.

Here are the full Xenoblade Chronicles 3 patch notes for 2.1.1.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where not having the Expansion Pass would cause the Special Hero BGM, Audio environment in Audio Setting, as well as Notifications to not display.

  • Fixed an issue with Staying Power’s Art Follow-Up, where activating Fusion Arts would cause the Follow-Up Attack damage to be dealt to the character using Fusion Arts and allies.

The previous Ver. 2.1.0 patch appeared on July 19, 2023, and it added compatibility with the new Pyra and Mythra amiibo figures, allowing for the Swordfighter class to equip the Pyra and Mythra Aegis swords as a skin replacing the default sword.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is available for the Nintendo Switch. Future Redeemed is a DLC expansion for the game, and it appeared with Wave 4 of the Expansion Pass DLC.
