How to save your game in Xenoblade Chronicles 3
There are four main ways you can save your game in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. They are:
- Auto-saving – which occurs as you enter new areas, hit new checkpoints, and other critical moments in the story.
- Saving at a Rest Spot
- Pressing the X button and then the Y button to quick-save from the menu
- Pressing the X button and enter the system menu and manually saving
The two easiest ways to save are by opening up the menu at any time as it will pause the game. However, having those two extra moments where the game can be saved, either at an auto-save point or at a rest spot is super handy.
So, before you quit the game, be sure to do one of these so that you can pick right back up from where you left off and you don’t feel that dreadful pain of coming back to hours of your progress being wiped.
And that is how to save your game in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. For more tips and guides on Xenoblade Chronicles 3, check out our recommendations for the best heroes in the game and our suggestions for the best class in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
