Over the past two days on Twitter, Monolith Soft has introduced the Xenoblade Chronicles Ponspectors. This is a group of Nopon who have been surveying the unknown lands of the Bionis’ Shoulder that players will get to visit in Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition‘s new Future Connected epilogue.
These Nopon can be found throughout the Bionis’ Shoulder, and they will ask for Shulk and Melia’s help with certain tasks. By completing their requests, they’ll join your team in battle, so try look for them whenever possible.
Here’s a look at one of the requests from the Ponspector Hachocho. In this one, he asks Shulk to help find his lost charm that was dropped in the Nervus Graveyard when a monster startled him.
There is a Ponspector Journal where you’ll be able to check out the profiles of all twelve Ponspectors. The Ponspectors are split into three teams, which are Red Team, Blue Team, and Yellow Team. Each of the Ponspectors have their own specialty skill, and have personality types like “Passionate,” “Caring,” or “Cowardly,” which may come into play in battles. From the team logos, it seems that each team has their own tendencies in battle as well, such as Red Team for fighting and Blue Team for healing.
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition will come to the Nintendo Switch worldwide on May 29, 2020. Check out screenshots of Alvis, Dickson, and Mumkhar in our previous report.
