The next game in Monolith Soft’s Xenoblade series is just around the corner, with Xenoblade Chronicles 3 launching later this week on Nintendo Switch!
The game releases on 29th July 2022, earlier than the September release window that was given earlier this year. Here’s what to expect:
The latest entry in the long-running role-playing series, which connects the futures of the two previous mainline Xenoblade Chronicles games, invites players to embark on an epic adventure with “life” as its central theme. In the game, players will step into the roles of protagonists Noah and Mio amid turmoil between the nations of Keves and Agnus. Six characters hailing from those nations join forces to learn the truth behind their conflict, and set their sights for Swordsmarch, a land pierced by a giant sword.

Pre-Order The Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Special Edition On Switch
Nintendo has revealed the special edition release pictured above, which is exclusive to the My Nintendo Store. It includes package artwork from Masatsugu Saito, a full-colour 250-page+ hardcover art book and a steel case. Pre-orders have already opened in the US, but have since sold out.
Pre-orders will also go live across Europe at a later date, after the game has released. Interestingly, because of the delay, Nintendo plans to let you buy the special edition contents separately so that you can still buy the standalone game now and play at launch.
“Due to unforeseen logistical challenges, we are unable to open pre-orders for the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Collector’s Edition before the game launches on July 29th. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
To give customers the flexibility to purchase and enjoy the game at launch, we will now be offering the contents of the Collector’s Edition (soft cover concept art book, steel case and outer box packaging) as a separate purchase at a price that does not include the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 software.
This means you can buy the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 game when it launches on July 29th, and have a chance to pre-order the Collector’s Edition contents on My Nintendo Store later in September.”
