Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Heart-to-Heart Locations & Answers Guide

One of the key mechanics to Xenoblade Chronicles is the Affinity Level between characters. Functionally, having a high affinity allows characters to share Skill Links amongst each other, which can really boost your combat capabilities, but it also allows you to see special conversations known as Heart-to-Hearts.

Heart-to-Hearts are side events between pairs of characters in Xenoblade Chronicles, and can be found at specified locations in the world with a symbol of shaking hands in the shape of a heart. Not only do these show some character insight between members of the party, but also allow you to boost Affinity even further by choosing the proper dialogue choices in the conversation.

There are three Heart-to-Hearts found in the game for each pair of characters, which adds up to 63 Heart-to-Hearts in total. However, in order to see these conversations, the affinity between characters must have reached a certain threshold. Affinity is shown by one of 5 icons in the Affinity Chart: yellow, green, blue, purple, or pink.

Find a list of every Heart-to-Heart conversation in the game below, with the location, characters, affinity, and correct answers for affinity listed. Note, many of the conversations require the story to have progressed to a certain point.

Note this guide will have spoilers for Xenoblade Chronicles.

One Final Note: There is an in-game achievement for both having a Heart-to-Heart conversation go as smoothly as possible, as well as an achievement for a Heart-to-Heart conversation to go as poorly as possible. As there are a limited number of Heart-to-Heart conversations in the game these are technically missable, so make sure you get each if you care. None of the Heart-to Heart conversations themselves are missable.
