Xenoblade Chronicles 3 made an appearance at last week’s Nintendo Direct – announcing the release date for Wave 3. This update has now officially arrived and with it comes a number of bug fixes.

Wave 3 adds the brand new hero Masha. She’s able to make accessories for your party using special types of ore. There are also new challenge battles to check out – where you can battle waves of enemies and gain new heroes and abilities as you progress.

Here are the full patch notes for Version 1.3.0, courtesy of Nintendo’s official support page:
