Over Half of New Xenoblade Chronicles Series Soundtrack Sales Are from Outside Japan

On the official Procyon website, the retailer selling the various recently unveiled Xenoblade Chronicles-related soundtracks, composer Yasunori Mitsuda penned a blog post remarking upon how more than half of the soundtrack sales are from overseas.

In particular, he states the following, translated by our team’s Ryuji:

“In fact, for the Xenoblade Chronicles soundtracks that were recently announced, if you compare the purchases from Japan vs. the purchases from overseas, the latter accounts for more than half of all the purchases… I’m now thinking about promoting our products overseas as well…”

This statistic illustrates how massive Xenoblade Chronicles has become globally, a feat that would have been previously thought unprecedented not even a full decade ago. So, regardless of what future the Xeno franchise has in store, the West will undeniably be considered more integrally than ever before.

Thanks to @XenobladeRAlpha on Twitter for catching this news.

For those who missed it, Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 recently had their physical soundtrack releases announced, alongside a Trinity Box housing songs from the entire Xenoblade Chronicles series.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is now available for Nintendo Switch. Further, its Expansion Pass has been entirely released, including the Future Redeemed prequel episode featuring a new playable cast.
