The release date for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has been changed. It’s important to realise that the news isn’t entirely bad before you become down on yourself. Originally scheduled for release in September, Xenoblade Chronicles will instead debut on July 29th. Fans of Japanese RPGs will be overjoyed by the fact that this release date is two months ahead of schedule.

Nintendo released a new Xenoblade Chronicles 3 clip on its official YouTube page, which revealed the information. Here’s a link to it embedded:


The trailer itself is rather typical, although it does include some previously unseen video. A montage of narrative sequences is followed by gameplay video that showcases the game’s real-time fighting system. With menacing voices and epic soundtrack, the teasers go back and forth between tale and gameplay teases. At the conclusion, we observe a date: 7.29.2022.

The revised release date for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is notable for two reasons. This is a first: a big game being moved closer to its release date rather than farther away is nearly unheard of. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel was just the latest high-profile game to be delayed by Nintendo. It’s practically unheard of for a game to be available earlier than expected in an age of public health-related delays.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 might offer gamers something to look forwards to this summer, given there aren’t many significant game releases in the next few months. Live A Live, a Japanese RPG from Square Enix, was the most anticipated July release until today, when Xenoblade: Revelations was released.


Xenoblade is a franchise that has been running on the Wii since 2010. Re-releases of both games were made available on the Nintendo Switch a few years ago, while the second game was released in 2017. Xenoblade Chronicles X is a Wii U spinoff, but that’s another tale.) Intricate combat systems, friendly party members, and enormous environments to explore are hallmarks of the expansive JRPGs in this collection. While the gameplay may be typical of a JRPG, the passion and craftsmanship that goes into it make it stand out.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will be reviewed by Tom’s Guide in the near future, which is currently much sooner than we expected. The new video and the first two titles on the Nintendo eShop should be plenty to whet your appetite for the time being.
