Nintendo and Monolith Soft have revealed more details about the protagonists and key characters who will appear in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. It will have six main characters coming from the two warring nations of Keves and Agnus. All characters were designed by Masatsugu Saito, who made his return from Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
Noah and Mio will both be the protagonists of Xenoblade Chronicles 3. When Monolith Soft unveiled the first trailer at the February 2022 Nintendo Direct, it included a notable scene where both characters play flutes. This is because Noah and Mio work as off-seers in their respective nations of Keves and Agnus. They play the flutes to mourn for fellow soldiers who fell on the battlefield.
Two more characters from each nation will accompany Noah and Mio. Noah will be joined by his childhood friends Lanz and Eunie. Lanz will mostly act on the frontlines, as his greatsword can also double as a shield. Meanwhile, Eunie will focus on healing her teammates.
Mio will also bring two allies with different specialties. The warrior Sena will lead the way with her physical strength and blunt weapon. The strategist Taion will support from behind with his intellect and numerous drones.
The Japanese press release for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 also revealed the voice actors for each of the six main characters:
- Noah – Ryohei Arai
- Mio – Minami Tsuda
- Lanz – Kohsuke Tanabe
- Eunie – Megumi Han
- Taion – Ryohei Kimura
- Sena – Miyuki Sato
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will be available worldwide for Nintendo Switch in September 2022.
