As in past entries in the series, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will feature Nopon characters. Two in particular will be able to help your party. While they aren’t main party members in the same way as people like Noah, Mio, Eunie, and Taion, they will still be able to join players. Both Riku and Manana can fill the seventh party member slot as “Heroes” characters and work together as a pair in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

First, here’s the key art showing the two Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Nopon.

Riku appears to carry a sword and shield in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. He’s also voiced by Sayaka Senbongi. In addition to being able to fight, he can fix weapons and other machines. First, here’s a Japanese video clip showing him in-game with Noah and Lanz.

And here are screenshots offering a closer look at Riku.

Manana is shown carrying a shield in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and she’s a Nopon chef. Her voice actress in Japan is Aya Suzaki. In her reveal video, she talks with Mio and Taion.

And here are the Manana screenshots. In two of them, she’s attacking with her weapon.

The last time Nintendo talked about Xenoblade Chronicles on Twitter, it showed off two in-game locations.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will come to the Nintendo Switch on July 29, 2022.
