Imran Khan says Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is nearing end of development at Monolith Soft, voice actor seemingly confirms too

Imran Khan, who previously worked at Game Informer and is a writer at FanByte, has revealed that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is in development at Monolith Soft and that it is nearing the final stages of development. Mr. Khan revealed the information from his sources in an article about a YouTube interview with actress Jenna Coleman who voices Melia in the original Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch. Miss Coleman said that she didn’t know if it was common knowledge, but she said she thinks they are doing another Xenoblade game, though she wasn’t sure if she was actually allowed to say that.

“Musing about her first role in Xenoblade Chronicles, Coleman said “God, when was the first game? Ten years ago? It was a long time ago, I did it pre-Doctor Who days and when they did they second one, they asked me to come back. And I think they’re going to do another,” Coleman paused. “Common knowledge? Don’t know. Yeah, I think they’re going to do another. Not sure if I’m allowed to say that.”

“According to our sources here, we can indeed confirm that to be the case. Moreover, the game is nearing its final stages of development, but its release date may be held back for any number of reasons. The third Xenoblade Chronicles game in development at Monolith Soft is a sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles 2, currently the best-selling game in the series.”

    1. If the next game is indeed going to be 3, I doubt it’ll be like X, since that’s kind of a spin-off.
      I would definitely like a sequel to X, though. Or at the very least a port. The first game is still my favorite, but I think X had the most impressive world.

  1. Need more Jenna Coleman. Need more (traditional) Xenoblade Chronicles. (X should have honestly been called something else…) Need more anime style graphics & character designs.

  2. I’m hyped even though I did not enjoy XC2 as much as XCDE, so a sequel to the former might not be my cup of tea.

  3. I’d love if XC3 was less… anime than XC2. XC2 had my least favourite artstyle in the series, but more than that, I really didn’t like the constant anime tropes.
