Over 5 years after the Switch launched, the system is still setting records for Nintendo. There have been countless franchises that have achieved their highest individual sales on the Switch over those 5 years, and now we can add Xenoblade Chronicles 3 to the list.
After just a few days on the market, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has now achieved the best launch sales for the entire series in Japan. This comes following the news that the JRPG managed to achieve the same feat in the UK. This means no other Xenoblade physical release in Japan has been met with a better reception out of the gate. 113,000 copies were sold during its first week on the market, which beats Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s record launch of 98,000 units.
