Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Direct announced for June 22nd
Well, that's unexpected...
Nintendo has announced a Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Direct presentation set to air via YouTube and Twitch this Wednesday, June 22nd, at 7:00 AM PST / 10:00 AM EST. It will be roughly 20 minutes long and exclusively feature information on Xenoblade Chronicles 3, coming to Nintendo Switch on July 29th, 2022.
I have no interest in a Direct of a game that I already know I'll buy. It would just be 20 minutes full of spoilers for me.
I can't make up my mind whether this is good or bad news in regard to Nintendo holding a main Direct in the next fortnight. I would say probably bad news, but you just don't know with Nintendo. I don't think I'll watch this XC3 Direct, it'll be chock full of spoilers.
Not touching this spoiler filled Direct. I'm getting the game for sure, so no need for it for me.
I'm gonna go ahead and ignore this. I absolutely don't want to see any more footage before I play it.
But that only means that one big chunk of the (hopefully) upcoming 'normal' direct will be open for something else.
I think the game needs it because it'll likely have adjustments to the battle system like any other game in this series. Also to deliver the premise in a clear cut way, and likely show some new distractions, maybe putting back ideas from X considering the alternate forms they showed, maybe those could gain the ability to fly.
In regards to a general direct, I think the timing has passed to having it be predictable. It could be next week or until september.
In agreement with the consensus here, I'm going to skip it because I'm already sold on it. Glad to see it's getting attention from Nintendo though to help sell to those not convinced yet. The timing of this direct is unfortunate, hope people don't take it out on the game for the presentation not being an E3 style showcase.
Might watch, but I think this bodes well for a general direct a weekish later, and glad it’s getting a nice spotlight.
