A young man named Rex lives among an endless ocean of clouds, where the last remnants of civilization live on the backs of colossal beasts called Titans.

Here's an extended look at some gameplay:
The game will definitely feel familiar to those who played Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles X. There's a heavy focus on exploration, many familiar enemies return and the combat is also reminiscent of the two previous games, though with a twist. Your party is kind of divided into two types of characters - Drivers and Blades. Blades are living weapons, in a way, and Drivers can draw out their full potential and use them in battle. Each of your Drivers can equip a multitude of Blades, which changes what kinds of abilities are available to them in battle.
