Xenoblade Chronicles 3 | Manana Accused

Manana would never!

I didn’t get as much time this past week as I would’ve liked to get further in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Nonetheless, I did make some progress at least. I’m not sure what part of the story I was at last week since I was extremely vague for the purpose of not discussing any significant spoilers. I can tell you though that I’m still in the middle, or perhaps nearing the end, of chapter 4 and have gone up from my prior 35 hours of playtime, to a total of about 50 hours. Once again, I somewhat switched between making periodic story progress and doing a bit of sidequesting along the way. I haven’t been doing every possible sidequest ever, I’ve mainly just been exploring and doing a few here and there. I’ve also unlocked a few extra classes and am trying to get them on certain characters who didn’t get them by default. Plus, my party is at level 52 at the moment. I have the option to raise them up a few more levels but I haven’t done it yet. XC3 is practically all I played this week. The only other gaming I got into includes, a little bit of Splatoon 2 and some Mahjong Soul. – Jenae
