Combat[edit]

Combat is broadly similar to previous games in the Xenoblade series. It is real-time rather than turn-based, and the player controls only a subset of the active party members, with others being controlled by AI. Doing nothing will result in the player-controlled characters auto-attacking regularly. A selection of more powerful attacks can also be used at will, each attack with its own cooldown. Such attacks may be more effective when used under certain conditions, e.g. dealing more damage when the enemy is hit from behind.

The 6 main playable characters are divided into three pairs, each pair being connected via an interlink:

When certain conditions are met in battle, each of these pairs may (independently) combine into Ouroboros form. This changes the set of attacks available to them.

In contrast with the combat of earlier games in the series, over 6 playable characters may be active simultaneously.

There is also a "quick move" feature, allowing characters to move for positional arts.
