Monolith Soft's special New Year's postcards make their way to fans in Japan

As we discussed late last year, Monolith Soft was running a Twitter contest to give away 300 New Year's postcards to fans. The postcards featured a celebration of the new year, and showcased Pyra wearing a Kimono. Those postcards have finally made it into the hands of the winners, as you can see above. Again, there are only 300 of these cards in existence, so these are a pretty big deal for collectors!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record appears to be a complete sell-out

Just a few days back, we made mention of how well Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record was selling in Japan. Things went so well with preorders that the original Feb. 2nd, 2019 release date had to be bumped back to Feb. 12th, 2019. It appears the publisher is having trouble meeting that date as well, as the book is completely sold out at multiple retailers.

There was even a restock at one point, and that managed to sell out in 40 minutes! While some customers will indeed get their book on Feb. 12th, it seems some others might have to be a bit patient for their order to arrive.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record art book slightly delayed due to more preorders than expected

Some good and bad news has come in concerning the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record art book. First and foremost, the book has been pushed back to a February 12th, 2019 release. While a delay is never good news for customers, the reasoning is definitely good for the publisher. It turns out more preorders came in than were expected, so the release date had to be pushed back to accommodate all the customers!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 hits 200k sold in Japan

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was a bigger hit than expected, according to Monolith Soft. They made that statement a number of months ago, and it seems they have plenty of reason to keep celebrating. Sales have continued to grow around the world, and as of the end of 2018, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is at 213,717 units sold. That makes it the 75th best-selling game of 2018 in Japan.
