The Xenoblade Chronicles 3 characters might remind you of ones from a past game, as Xenoblade Chronicles 2 designer Masatsugu Saito returned to work on the cast. Executive Director Tetsuya Takahashi brought it and other details up in an official message following the game’s announcement.

The announcement didn’t just mention Saito. A number of other returning Xenoblade Chronicles series staff will also be back. For example, Koichi Mugitani contributed designs for Xenoblade Chronicles X and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and made key art for this entry. Returning composers ACE, Kenji Hiramatsu, Manami Kiyota, Mariam Abounnasr, and Yasunori Mitsuda will be back. All five composed music for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 too.

As a reminder, you can already see how some of the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 characters look. The first trailer appeared as part of its February 2022 Nintendo Direct reveal. The main protagonist and both allies and enemies all showed up in the initial footage.

To help provide more insight, here’s another scene taken from the game.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will come to the Nintendo Switch in September 2022.
