    It’s, quite simply, one of the best titles on the Nintendo Switch, and one of the top role-playing games of 2022.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 3 reflects all of the maturity accumulated throughout the last 12 years by a franchise that struggled to survive since its very first game, which was released by Nintendo in the West only after fan petitions. The game streamlines the action, gets rid of juvenile erotization and tells a story with heroes that talk like actual human beings, while simultaneously refining the exploration and world-building that already shone in its predecessors.

    The cast, the weight of the story, and the freedom of party composition are the power trio that won me over.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 3 changes things up in a good way, offering a twist on the most unique combat out there. It’s lengthy, engaging, warm, and probably the best RPG of the year. The best one yet, for sure.

    I had an incredible amount of fun when playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3. This game is worth being mentioned next to the biggest and best titles in the genre and is one of the best exclusive Switch games ever.

    Epic giant role-playing game that stays true to the tradition of the series and creates a distinctive world that shakes your foundations after umpteen hours of play.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 3 earns a modest thumbs up. It’s undeniably huge, delivering good bang for your RPG dollar, and has some interesting ideas on its mind. It’s no Final Fantasy or Zelda, but fans of sophisticated combat and Japanese storytelling should be well served.

Masterpiece, they keep introducing new mechanics way past the opening chapters, this could be complicated but everything is explained and the slow approach makes it feel like im learning and even evolving the characters. Many games i just put down, but this i cant put down.

    Handheld or docked, i like both. It runs very good in my opinion and is contrary to many jrpgs a full fletched game. I love it.
