Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is now a summer game; ready faster

GamesBeat Summit 2022 returns with its biggest event for gaming leaders on April 26-28. Reserve your spot here!

Nintendo pushes Xenoblade Chronicles 3 release date. The publisher announced the move on social media this morning. After initially being promised that the role-playing adventure would come in September, it will now debut on July 29.

Nintendo also announced the Special Edition version of the game that comes with additional goodies like the art book. Fans can pick up the Special Edition exclusively from the My Nintendo Store.


The publisher didn’t give a date for pre-orders, but said it would have more information soon.

This uproar raises some questions about the rest of Nintendo’s year. Splatoon fans are still waiting for news about Splatoon 3, which the publisher said would be released this year. Nintendo also has Bayonetta 3 which is supposed to debut in 2022. But maybe Nintendo’s plans around that game are shifting. That could give the company a reason to move to Xenoblade sooner.
