We already knew more Xenoblade Chronicles 3 DLC would be on the way, with wave 3 due by April 30, 2023 and 4 by December 31, 2023. However, at the February 2023 Nintendo Direct, we got a look at the next part of the expansion pass. As promised, there will be a new hero character named Masha and quests to go with them. The Challenge Battle mode with roguelike elements will also appear. People can get all of it on February 15, 2023. The Wave 4 DLC also looks to bring back Shulk.
Here’s the trailer that looks at the upcoming DLC. It also shows the first story-based expansion in wave 4, which brings back past Xenoblade Chronicles characters.
