In the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 DLC relationship chart, the lines between new protagonist Matthew and Niall/Nael indicates that they are siblings. Additionally, Matthew seems to be concerned about Niall/Nael, with his line connecting to her reading “What is wrong with you!?” Meanwhile, Niall’s line towards Matthew reads “The world won’t change like that,” showing that hers and Matthew’s ideals and views on The City and Moebius differ. Matthew and Niall/Nael’s grandfather is simply called “Ghondor” and is the founder of The City.
A is Matthew’s partner. Matthew thinks that she complains too much, while A’s line towards Matthew reads “Do not rush in alone.” N and Z are returning Moebius members and they pose a threat to The City, as their intention is raiding it. However, a mysterious line connects N to Ghondor, and it only includes a question mark.
Nikol is a timid soldier from the country of Keves, while Glimmer is described as a brave soldier from the country of Agnus. Their relationship is initially antagonistic, as both countries are at war. Nikol only wants the defeat of Glimmer and Agnus, while Glimmer’s line towards Nikol reads “Shut up; I’ll take care of you!”
Shulk, Rex, and Riki are the Liberators. While Riki is isolated from the two, Rex and Shulk have a friendly relationship. Shulk’s line towards Rex reads “You can count on me!” Meanwhile, Rex’s line towards Shulk reads “I guess this was fate!” Finally, a character who looks identical to Alvis from the first Xenoblade Chronicles game appears on the top of the chart. However, here he is simply named with a question mark.
The Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC will come out on April 25, 2023. The game is readily available on the Nintendo Switch, and its previous 3 DLC waves are also available.
