They’re a tank
Nintendo just put out a Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Zeon character reveal, which showcases the tank class in action.
The first reveal actually comes via the Nintendo of Europe Twitter account, which gives us a quick translated rundown of the character (notice the High Entia wing design on their head):
“Zeon is a Keves soldier and a reliable hero who’ll go above and beyond to protect his allies in #XenobladeChronicles3. Armed with a sword and shield, Zeon’s abilities are enhanced when he’s pitted against stronger enemies.”
Next, we have to hover back over to the Japanese Nintendo Twitter account, because this is how Nintendo delivers segmented chunks of news these days, even on bigger games.

Through the above account, we actually get a much better look at the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Zeon character reveal in video form, which more than does its job. Big sword? Check. Protecting the party? Check.
I’m a sucker for tank characters, and the getup of knight armor and an anime glowing sword and shield really do it for me. It’s going to be hard to push this character out of my forever party unless Monolith Soft has something really special up its sleeve.
