After numerous rumors coming about over the course of the past year, Nintendo today officially announced that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is on its way for Nintendo Switch. The sequel to 2017’s Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will now focus on a new cast of characters and tell a new story that is set within the same world. And while the announcement of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 on its own is surely exciting to a number of fans, the game will also be launching far sooner than expected.
Nintendo revealed Xenoblade Chronicles 3 today as its final announcement in today’s new Direct presentation. The trailer itself showed off many of the new characters and gave a glimpse into the story that this third installment in the series will tell. Best of all, it was also confirmed that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will end up launching later this year in September 2022 for Nintendo Switch.

The arrival of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 on Switch means that the whole mainline series (other than Xenoblade Chronicles X) remains available on a single platform. In addition to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 being on Switch, a remaster of the original game known as Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is available to purchase and play right now.
