Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is out on the Nintendo Switch and it’s already made our list of the best games you can play on the handheld.

Announced on 19 April, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is now being released a full two months ahead of schedule on 29 July 2022, much to the joy of Nintendo Switch fans.

Each game in the series is loosely connected, but Nintendo has confirmed that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will bridge the gap between the previous two mainline titles.

In our review of the game, we said: “Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is the strongest entry into the series yet, while simultaneously managing to bridge the themes and mechanics of the first two games in a meaningful way.”

Players will control seven characters including a new protagonist named Noah. One new battle mechanic being implented into the game is called “Ouroboros mode”, where two characters can combine into a giant form, each with their own powerful moev set.

In order to help you find the best deals for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 we’ve compiled the list and information below.

‘Xenoblade Chronicles 3’ collector’s edition

If you were hoping to pick up the collector’s edition of the game along with Xenoblade Chronicles 3,then Nintendo has an update for those hoping to pre-order it.

A statement on Nintendo’s website reads: “Due to unforeseen logistical challenges, we are unable to open pre-orders for the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 collector’s edition before the game launches.

“To give customers the flexibility to purchase and enjoy the game at launch, we will now be offering the contents of the collector’s edition as a separate purchase at a price that does not include the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 software.

“This means you can buy the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 game when it launches on 29 July 2022, and have a chance to pre-order the collector’s edition contents on My Nintendo Store later in September.”

As it stands, the collector’s edition will now contain the following items:

  • Package artwork from character artist Masatsugu Saito
  • Softcover concept artbook
  • A steel case for the game card
