Xenoblade Chronicles

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 future

We already heard from Monolith Soft’s Tetsuya Takahashi that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is the “culmination” of the series and “summary for moving on to the next step”. However, on Nintendo’s side, producer and director Genki Yokota has stated that he wants to keep the series “going as long as possible”.

That comment came about in the final section of Nintendo’s official interview regarding Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Speaking about the future, Takahashi and Yokota said:

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is three months away, so we’re definitely feeling the hype. Monolith Soft has said that this new game can be played if you haven’t gone through the first two, but those that really want the most out of it will want to see what the previous outings have to offer – especially from a story perspective.

Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and 2 are both special in their own right, but some fans have a clear preference for one over the other. With that in mind, we want to hear from you about which one you like more (we haven’t forgotten about Xenoblade Chronicles X, but obviously 1 and 2 are more similar to each other). How do you feel they compare from the perspective of the gameplay, world, story, characters, and music? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.

xenoblade my nintendo offer

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 just received a final July 29, 2022 release date, and Nintendo is celebrating the news with a special offer.

Starting today, fans can earn double My Nintendo Gold Points on select content from the Xenoblade Chronicles series. In other words, up to 10 percent in points is up for grabs, which can be used for a future digital game or DLC purchase.

Xenoblade is celebrating its 10th anniversary today. The first entry on Wii initially launched in Japan on June 10, 2010. To celebrate, some special artwork has been prepared, which we have above.

Xenoblade Chronicles wasn’t localized until the European edition in August 2011. North America had to continue waiting for the RPG, as Nintendo didn’t bring it over until April 2012.

Since the original Xenoblade Chronicles, we’ve seen Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on Switch. Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, a redone version of the Wii title, came to Switch late last month.


Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is launching on Switch in a couple of months following previous releases on Wii and New 3DS. A new comparison video for all three versions can be found below.

After it originally appeared on Wii a decade ago, Xenoblade Chronicles will return on Switch next year. See how the two versions stack up in the video below.

Xenoblade Chronicles is out now on the North American Wii U eShop. To celebrate the release, here’s a trailer:

Xenoblade Chronicles made its way to the European Wii U eShop last August. In North America, it will finally be available tomorrow, Nintendo’s website confirms.

Here’s a brief overview:

Discover expansive environments and deep character customization options as you delve into an epic conflict between the Homs (humans) and Mechons (robots). Explore the game’s unique upgrade system, battle system, and relationship-building system as you fight to change the future with trusty allies and the ancient Monado blade.

Xenoblade Chronicles will be priced at $19.99.


Amazon, through a third-party seller, has Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii in stock. It can be purchased for $40 here.. It’s for UAE Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, and Singapore, but the game is in English and works with U.S. systems.

Earlier this week, Xenoblade Chronicles hit the European Wii U eShop. It’s a 6.5GB for those who are wondering.

It’s not yet known when we’ll be seeing Xenoblade Chronicles on the North American eShop. Soon, hopefully!
