It’s a holiday for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and while there has been a lot of demand for the physical versions of the game, it looks like a lot of people are still buying the digital version of the game.
For some, these purchases may even have been due to the delays associated with fancier collectible versions. According to the US online store charts, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is now ahead of Minecraft.
Even games like Nintendo Switch Sports and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe are two games that have just received DLC updates. Digimon Survive has also snuck into sixth place, and Live A Live is in 9th place at the time of writing.
It’s the same in places like the UK – Xenoblade is ahead, ahead of games like Among Us, FIFA 22 and Mario Kart. And in Japan, the game is also in first place. On top of that, it also charts on sites like Amazon.
Again, this is not a bad start for a series of RPGs like this one. Previous game Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sold over 2 million copies, while the Definitive Edition of the original game on Switch sold over 1.5 million copies.
