Today, Nintendo revealed that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 for the Nintendo Switch would be released on July 29, 2022. This is significant as the company had initially announced that the title would be released in September 2022. Seeing that Nintendo has moved the release date up by two months shows that Nintendo is confident in this title. Plus, there’s one more Summer 2022 game for Nintendo Switch owners to enjoy.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is the latest title in the long-running role-playing series, which connects the futures of the two previous mainline Xenoblade Chronicles games, and 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.
A Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Special Edition has also been announced, which includes package artwork from Masatsugu Saito, a full-color 250-page+ hardcover art book, and a steel case. Nintendo hasn’t revealed a price for this but has mentioned more details will be revealed in the future.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 for the Nintendo Switch now releases on July 29, 2022, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
