Procyon Studio has announced that an issue has been discovered in the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 limited edition soundtrack. Specifically, the part holding Noah’s and Mio’s flutes in place, the Spacer, has a defect.
To remedy this issue, a replacement Spacer will be provided in the same package as the defective one, so customers must manually replace the parts themselves.
The full message from Procyon Studio is quoted below:
“Regarding the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Original Soundtrack (Limited Edition), a defect caused by the manufacturing plant was found in the part that holds the [Seishin no Fue (Noah’s flute) 1/3 Scale Mini Replica] and the [Kishin no Fue (Mio’s flute) 1/3 Scale Mini Replica] in place (hereafter referred to as “Spacer”). We deeply apologize to all those who purchased the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Original Soundtrack (Limited Edition).
As a result of discussing the best way to deliver the limited edition soundtrack in a timely manner, we have decided to leave the Defective Spacer as it was originally packed within the product and pack the Corrected Spacer separate from the product but in the same package. When the product arrives, we would like to ask you to switch out the Defective Spacer with the Corrected Spacer. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience. Please note that it is not necessary to return the Defective Spacer.
Currently, the Corrected Spacers are quickly being manufactured. For orders that will be sent to addresses outside of Japan, shipping will continue as scheduled. For more information regarding shipments of both the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Original Soundtrack (Limited Edition) and the Xenoblade Chronicles Original Soundtrack Trinity Box within Japan, please refer to the Japanese language version of this webpage.
We deeply apologize again for the inconvenience.
We look forward to your continued patronage.”

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 tells the story of protagonists Noah and Mio contending with a conflict between the nations of Keves and Agnus. 6 characters will be the crux of the experience, and the broad concept of “life” will be the title’s central theme.
The narrative ties in elements and plotlines from the future of the prior two mainline games, Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Flutes seem to play an integral role in this title’s premise.
The summoning of this powerful new form depends on a new Interlink system. If specific conditions are met, duos of characters can combine into ta mech, and choosing when to transform is key to the more difficult battles. Another system is a class change option, allowing players to customize their parties’ builds further than in previous games.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is now available for Nintendo Switch.
