Looking into Xenoblade Chronicles 3 pre-orders? Well, it’s a good thing you’ve come to our website, because we have a comprehensive overview of both different versions of the game, letting you know everything you need to know, about this exciting new action RPG game from the creative minds at Monolith Soft.

Are Xenoblade Chronicles 3 pre-orders worth getting? Well, if you’re looking for a game that ties together Xenoblade Chronicles and its sequel, while also expanding and enhancing all of the things you loved about the earlier games, then the answer is absolutely yes. While the game focuses on two new characters called Noah and Mio, Nintendo has said that “it will connect the futures of both Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles 2.”

Might we see older versions of beloved characters from the earlier games? Maybe we will, maybe we won’t. We don’t know how far into the future the game will be, but we’re sure it will be filled with references and connections that’ll put on a smile on the face of long-time fans.

The game comes out on July 29 this year, and is sure to be among the best Nintendo Switch games when it does. Anyway, let’s take a look at its different editions.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Special Edition

If you’re after a version with all the bells and whistles, then check out the Special Edition. This version is exclusive to the My Nintendo Store and is currently sold out. However, if you are lucky enough to find one, this edition comes bundled with a SteelBook to keep the game in, as well as an exclusive art book that is filled with concept art  – something we’re sure lots of fans will be keen to get their hands on.

What to play ahead of Xenoblade Chronicles 3
