Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is a massive and dense RPG, and Nintendo clearly knows this, sharing a bunch of tips for players to make the most of the game. You can check them out here, but we’ll round up the key standouts from the list.

These Xenoblade Chronicles 3 tips are a little broader than some you’ll find in our Xenoblade Chronicles 3 combat and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 classes guides, sure, but they can still be super handy. They cover certain elements of gameplay that could be missed but are vital to understanding everything.

We’ve also got a Xenoblade Chronicles timeline explanation if you’re confused about how the games fit together, and a feature on Xenoblade Chronicles’ Operation Rainfall fan movement.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 tips

One of the key Xenoblade Chronicles 3 tips shared by Nintendo is that it doesn’t matter if you haven’t played the previous games! Sure, there are lots of little connections between the mainline games, but they don’t actually crossover that much in-game. They’re more secret backstage lore nonsense.

Another key aspect is leveling up at rest spots. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 banks a certain amount of XP for you to upgrade your characters at different points. This can be great if you want to avoid over-leveling, but if you forget to level up at rest spots you might find yourself very under-leveled. Be careful!

It also rounds up a variety of key features, like the guidance and auto-battle systems, as well as recommending that players turn the difficulty down if it’s too hard. While there’s a guidance system, Nintendo is emphasising the wide open world, asking players to wander off piste from time to time.

That’s all the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 tips we’ve got today. We’ve also got guides to Xenoblade Chronicles 3 characters, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Mio, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Noah if you need all the info.
