Xenoblade Chronicles 3 takes the path of every salty fan of the two previous games and has the two fight each other.

PC Shader

Within the folder containing shader files, there exists a lib_pc.bin, a leftover when the game was developed on the PC.

Unused Party members

Unused Textures

Ending Cutscene Leftovers

The movie file mv07560100 is the ending's prerendered cutscene showing Poppi and Rex's family photo. Files in the game's chr/nx/tex/(h/m) have textures for Poppi and Rex's photograph. However, there is no model data such as Winsmt or Wimdo for Poppi in the game's files. If Poppi's new textures are transferred from the game to her mesh from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, the textures line up alongside UVs of that game. The Xenoblade Chronicles 3 model is missing textures such as a belt buckle color but its normal map still exists.

Unused Graphics

To do:
There's a lot more unused graphics here. Including old map segment artifacts and unused thumbnails for the battle drills when the final ones dont have thumbnails

icon_chara_battle_0 icons

XB3 Icon chara battle 0 placeholdericon.png

In icon_chara_battle_0 (which contains the battle icons for the party members), there exist 12 blank icons and two icons of a black silhouette of Noah that was used as a placeholder, most likely used by Joran and Nimue.

icon_job_2_0 icons

XB3 icon job 2 0 UnusedWeapon1.pngXB3 icon job 2 0 UnusedWeapon2.png

There are two unused icons in icon_job_2_0 (which contains the weapon icons for the party members). The first is clearly Joran's weapon. The second is a sword with flower/plant details - it might be a beta version of Nia's, but based on its placement it's more likely to be for Nimue, who is never seen with a weapon and has the whole saffronia tree thing going on. Equivament icons are missing from icon_job_2_c_0 (the same symbols but role-based red/blue/green instead of white).

Chain attack order icons

Like the other stuff above, Joran (ヨラン) and Nimue (ナミ) also have dummy chain attack order images, which curiously use a silhouette of Noah with his Lucky Seven arm active (unlike Noah's actual pose). So does Mwamba, who dies before chain attacks are unlocked.

Incomplete colony icons

A sheet of unfinished colony icons. The visual style is inconsistent, and four have no art at all (just placeholders of their names).

A set of 9 unused icons labeled strm_ch_thumb001_0 to strm_ch_thumb009_0. The latter three have the Japanese text "タレント", or "talent".

Hero outfits debugging

To do:
Get all of these. (ch09xxxxxx)

There are several models that have many hero outfits applied to them with no textures. These being ch09001110 for Noah, ch09001210 for Mio, ch09001310 for Enuine, ch09001410 for Taion, ch09001510 for Lanz, ch09001610 for Sena. For example, ch09001110 has Miyabi-Isurd-Riku-Lanz-Sena-Taion-Segiri outfits.

Version 1.1.1

Bug Fixes

  • Altered Perilwing Ryuho’s behavior pattern; made it undefeatable if player is in area that cannot be reached in the main scenario’s intended progression.
  • Fixed a bug in Teach's Ascension quest, "Shadow of Enmity", where the first battle sometimes did not end.
  • Fixed an issue where the battle with the Mysterious Raider in the "Severed Connection" quest sometimes did not end.
  • Fixed a problem in which the requested items "Gogol Vuaga" and "Gogol Dalm" for some Collectopedia Cards were not available.
  • Fixed a problem in which various effects were not occurring correctly for dishes other than "Baked Spongy Spud", and "Sunny-Style Fish Pie".
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the Talent Arts button to disappear and not be able to be pressed during certain procedures. If this problem has already occurred, it will be fixed by loading the saved data after updating the software.
  • Fixed a problem in which the text "Verkaufen" in the store menu was overlapping the adjacent text when Language Settings was set to German.
  • In addition, several other issues have been fixed to make the game more enjoyable to play.
  • Those addition fixes include Taion's Strategos outfit a vertex that was poking into his head, and a update to Eunie's Swordfighter outfit class files to fix a bug.
