Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Sells 1.72 Million Units Worldwide

Nintendo and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 character designer Masatsugu Saito have announced that the latest entry in the Xenoblade franchise has sold over 1.72 million units worldwide. Specifically, 480,000 units were sold in Japan, while 1.24 million units were sold overseas.

To commemorate the noteworthy achievement, Saito posted artwork compiling previous solo character illustrations into a grand sight to behold.


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, characters can combine into this mech, and choosing well when to transform should be key to the more difficult battles. Another system revealed 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.
