Xenoblade 3 underperforms in Japan

01./00. [NSW] Xenoblade Chronicles 3 # <RPG> (Nintendo) {2022.07.29} (¥7.980) - 112.728 / NEW <40-60%>

The game only sold around 40% of the initial shipment. This is pretty mediocre sales for the game and I'm play Japan didn't fell for the woke shit in the game

      How do you expect the fact that the game sold like shit given it's initial shipment? In comparison this is what Horizon Zero Dawn sold during its first week

      02./00. [PS4] Horizon: Zero Dawn # <RPG> (Sony Interactive Entertainment) {2017.03.02} (¥6.900) - 109.739 / NEW <80-100%>

      High attach rate always means legs. Horizon ended up selling 300K physical only. Low attach rate for Xenoblade 3 means it will have bad legs

        So did Xenoblade 2 despite having wore launch than Xeno 3 and Horizon.
        And that's the reason behind higher shipment. Less shortages and reprints this time.

        How are you going to cope when October comes, Nintendo releases their financial reports and it turns out Xeno 3 has sold 500k in Japan in 2 months? Are you going to keep spamming "Why did Xenoblade 3 flop?" threads like you've been doing with SMT V and Metroid Dread?

        I admittedly have no idea what japanese markets are like but I strongly doubt that Sony allows for there to be stores with anything less than two bins full of spare copies of their AAA releases.

        You can't have it both ways where there can be games that don't sell well in Japan on competitor platforms that have proof they sell well digitally and getting shit on in threads like the Famitsu ones but when XC3 supposedly has the proof of doing the exact same thing, it's suddenly okay to not shit on it because now the shoe is on the other foot? Fuck that, it still deserves a comeuppance because Nintendo and everyone in the West online overrated the franchise to the position it is in.

                To me it just seems like companies have decided to shift the majority of their lewd titles to mobile, where the "sex sells" philosophy ends up bringing in a lot more money than a niche lewd console game would. A $60 game that can take years to develop versus $900 for someone hitting the pity timer on a character in a gacha game isn't even comparable, and they can pump out multiple new characters every month.

                So they give the console games that are more expensive to make and take longer to develop a more broad appeal by sanitizing them to get more normalfags to buy them like with Tales of Arise. Then to top things off, creating a lewd game drought can push gamers who want lewd anime girls towards mobile where they can start selling them individual characters for more than the price of an entire game all while running the game on a shoestring budget. Nearly every Japanese publisher has some mobile games they're trying to push, Tales of Luminaria hired a hentai artist to do the character designs and was released a month after Tales of Arise. Too bad that didn't work out for them and Luminaria shut down.

                Tales of Arise isn't sanitized. I don't care if you don't like the game. It has hot characters, swimsuits,etc.

                Nobody is shitting on Xenoblade 3 because it has heterosexual romance. If anything, Xenofags have proven they are love sick fucking losers who only care about romance. Every Xenoblade thread is either about Melia being cucked, Rex's Harem and now Mio (the most boring shit catgirl ever made)

                Those swimsuits are locked behind a paid DLC pack (which also unlock some of the strongest skills in the game), your average player will never have to see them unless they go out of their to buy it themselves and many most likely are not going to even look at the DLC page to even know they exist. If you want the lewd outfits, you're paying up just like in a gacha game.

                It's also more of a fujo game these days but it's a decent example of a company having a more family friend console release and then having lewder ones on mobile since they're from the same franchise. But even in regards to the swimsuits, Crestoria's swimsuits showed a lot more skin.

      Doesn’t look like it, to me. Nintendo putting a lot of marketing power to promote the game doesn’t mean it’s not niche. Do you actually think a jrpg game series like, idk, Fire Emblem, sell as many copies as Splatoon or Zelda?
      I know Gankertards seethe and want this game to actually flop, but from what i’m seeing, it sold well for what it is.

    Uh it's less about being woke and more about trying to appeal to a new audience. The game, outside of gameplay, seems very inspired by Tales of Arise: three couples, pretty painted-like aesthetic, main couple confirmed soulmates or something. I do daresay they tried to tap into that female market Arise found. As we're seeing with the sales didn't seem to work that well.

      Verily. It in-deed takes myriad inspirations from the Tales series' release de noveau-- alas; such a tactic ended wastefully and balefully as the virtual entertainment product known as Xenoblade Chronicles the Third; considered by many on the Internet to be one of the weakest outings of one Monolith Soft; did underperform to such a degree to warrant vast mockery from the fine fellows in this very discussion.

    Just finished Chapter 3, when does the plot starts ? Please tell me the game isn't 80h of "go to place, defeat consule, repeat" until the game run out of alphabet letters... The gameplay is fun, it would be a shame if they'd fucked the story up

      The plot literally stays the same for the whole game and the gameplay only gets more tedious. Just ask any anon.

      How do you expect the fact that the game sold like shit given it's initial shipment? In comparison this is what Horizon Zero Dawn sold during its first week

      02./00. [PS4] Horizon: Zero Dawn # <RPG> (Sony Interactive Entertainment) {2017.03.02} (¥6.900) - 109.739 / NEW <80-100%>

      High attach rate always means legs. Horizon ended up selling 300K physical only. Low attach rate for Xenoblade 3 means it will have bad legs

      Based. Not a single tendie tot debating this LMFAO

        Blackrock has no impact on Nintendo, what the fuck would Nintendo want with a few hundred million dollars in investment when they have billions in liquid cash that they already can't spend. The only thing you are seeing here is yet again the US branch selling Japanese studios the lie that their games need to be changed to suit western tastes, and that westerners worship morons and cover their face in shame if a woman is wearing anything less than a tank top and jeans, an easy lie to sell when Twitter is such an important platform, even though it presents an almost entirely leftist slanted look at US culture that represents less than 1% of all US citizens views.

          XB2 also had a corridor for its first chapter. You can fuck around in Argentum but there isn't much to do there. Then you go to the ship and then the chapter ends.
          I think the bigger issue is chapters in 3 are longer to make up for there being fewer, which means the story rolls at least 2 but upwards of 3 plot lines in per chapter. And that's to say nothing of how sprawling the Hero and Colony plotlines can be

    • 5 days ago
      Anonymous

      I'll say I think this game suffers a bit from delegating what would have been H2H scenes into the main story. It means that you have no choice about when you have a poignant emotional moment, you can't progress the plot without them.
      H2Hs were used specifically to deal with this issue. The result of integrating them back into the critical path means that the player's progress is going to be stopped more frequently
      It's more frustrating because the game is really fun and a lot of the time, I just want to get to the next zone to fight new enemies

                Pre production, they don't design the characters while the character assets are being made, development exists in multiple stages and Monolith Soft is one of those devs that need a long lead in.
                >Monosoft is still hiring even after Xenoblade 3's development
                All studios are, they need to keep hiring more staff to replace staff who are leaving, Platinum Games has barely grown but have an annual univesity grads program.
                >contract work is par for the course regardless of the scope of the game.
                Well yeah because the composers are contracted, They contract staff for basic tasks because their own studio is just not large enough to handle these tasks internally, Nintendo themselves have identified this issue and are trying to rectify it, but Monolith Soft don't have billions sitting around to build a new office building and hire a few thousand more staff.

                It's also worth noting that flooding the consumer base with too much of one IP or too many similar games ends up hurting sales. Golden Sun also died because there was no niche for it in the Nintendo ecosystem: Pokemon is the go to casual RPG, Nintendo tries to get every DQ they can, Fire Emblem satisfied the tactical niche (which is part of why Wars died out), and now Monolith's Xeno games are filling the last relevant traits GS had (technical spectacle, presentation, content quantity) while simultaneously providing staff and tools for other games.

        Higher sales don't automatically mean good news. It's like when you're a toy store and you order a huge stock for October, more than 200% (being conservative) what you ordered for September. When the books close you saw you only had 15% growth increase in sales. 15% increase only in October for a toys' store. Any sane businessman would be asking what he did wrong.

    At least Bayonetta 3 disables the censorship. I remember all the excuses Tendies made up for the reason she was censored.
    If Xenoblade 3 had this feature and the real designs for all the girls made them have designs similar to Pyra, Mythra, and Dahlia, I'd have bought the game in a heartbeat.

    Game is good
    But there are a lot of small things that were present in past games that this game is lacking or missing
    In fact, the Heroes feel very uneven in terms of what kind of presence they have
    They're present in the camp but they only have very basic poses. They don't ever interact with other party members in camp scenes. They have lots of contextual dialogue but almost never with other party members.
    There seems to have been a conscientious effort to keep Heroes in their own dimension in terms of voice lines or animations

        >you can overlevel easily
        The only time I was overleveled for a boss right in the main story was for the one at the end of Maktha, and that’s only because the first time I got there I was under by about 4 levels, and got sidetracked exploring and completing quests in the previous areas, so much that beating the boss for Alexandria’s quest gave me 2 levels in one fight. If you try to clear everything the moment it opens up then you’ll probably be overleveled but that would also require a bit of grinding to even have a chance at some of the higher level areas initially.

            But I'm not annoyed by this because I enjoy long fights, believe it or not. Although story related fights will be too easy now...
            Can you tell me - and this isn't because I'm too lazy to google, I just don't want to spoil any more of the game (especially hero list) - what is the highest possible % for bonus EXP in chain attacks? I think 400-something was the biggest one I had.

    I get not liking XC3 as much as the previous games and all for various reasons, but it's getting real tiresome watching all these retards crawl out of the woodwork to claim the game is the worst thing to come out in the last decade and the biggest flop in recent memory when it's barely even been a week since the game officially released. Personally though I do hope they focus on either a remake of XCX or put out a sequel for it for their next game (hopefully one a little more story-focused anyway), that entry really doesn't deserve the fate it got by being left to rot on the Wii U.

    The only thing I can honestly say is the music is lacking as all hell. I can remember practically all of XC's OST, most of 2 and X's but the only track I can even remember from playing 3, which i dedicated my last three days to playing mind you, Is that damned flue solo that plays 50 times over. Nothing like mechanical rhythm, or tragic decision. even the moebius battle theme was mid.

        Absolutely underrated kino track. Getting to that area and seeing all of the verticality while that music played gave me a sense of wonder and desire to explore that I haven't felt since I played X.
        I will say though, I just got to Urayan Tunnels and so far the area themes (visuals and music) are overall much weaker than past games, but the areas themselves are more fun to explore than 1 and 2. So I'm a little torn.

      I'll also say the zones aren't really as distinct as I'd like. about 50% are visually similar plains, the other 50% of decent
      2 feels positively condensed compared to 3. 2 had almost nothing but original, distinct and memorable zones and music. 3 has nearly twice as much but I can only remember every other zone theme or area.
      I will say I quite enjoy the battle tunes and the general variety you get early on even in the field with both normal, elite and unique monster themes

        Exploration I feel like is an improvement. I can’t remember the areas too well but I remember what I did, like climbing on the wall of hidden machina village, trying to run the the back section of the desert area with the glowing trees (only to later discover that leads to colony iota), finding a cave in the first area that only has high level elites and rushing to get the containers in there, exploring the upper area of the first grassy plain once you get the climbing ability, going back and finding colony gamma, spending hours searching the mountain in the desert for the cave entrance (it was far from the mountain), finding a locked door in the desert, zip lining over the the ruined gate of fonsa myma, and searching for supply drops and the glowing shards. It feels like I’m actually exploring the world, and manages to give more memorable moments than 1 or 2, even if the actual locations aren’t that memorable or are reliant on the player remembering the location from a prior game and seeing how it transformed.

          Absolutely
          I agree that the actual map layout is better and encourages looking around the world more rather than over-relying on the map itself
          I'll have to replay X at some point to compare but on the whole, it's definitely the most enjoyable game to play moment to moment.
          I suppose it's just all the little things that I miss. The super distinct zone color palettes and themes. The variety of town themes (even though there are way more towns now).
          It's the little things I miss the most, even though all the big things are direct improvements over past games

    I need to rant about that last stretch. How the hell do you have a dungeon more packed to the walls with enemies than prison island or elysium, and yet still feel lacking? I fought every single enemy on my way to Z, and was about 79 by the end of it. I started the dungeon at 75. That's only 4 levels worth for the sheer amount of tedium and nonsense to go through, only to find out the final boss is only seventy fucking two. Zanza was at least 82. Zanza at least had a compelling argument and speech with memorable dialogue. Z had a few very annoying status changes, and TEN PHASES. And if you lost on any of those phases it was right back to begining with at least 15 minutes of in between exposition. Like jesus. Reel it in. I want the story too, but the pacing is all over the fucking place. it wasn't epic or interesting, it was just annoying. What was the fucking point of fighting not only 5 Z' phases, but a random X, a Y, and then 3 more Z phases??

      It just felt rushed. especially the whole last segment. Everything is just fine now because we stopped moebius? Nia even said the original issue was that the worlds that Klaus split yearned to be reunited. So whats stopping that from happening again? It was never Z or moebius that cause the worlds to gravitate towards each other, it was the will of the universe. How does stopping Z, an entity that came after all that as an afterthought, stop that?

      The finale is where Xenoblade 3 goes from 2/10 to -7/10. It was bad but the end just cemented it as one of our most hated games of all time!

        Yeah I legitimately don't see it. Arise is hardly the game i'd use as the poster boy for a good tales game, but even so I don't see what X3 aped from it other than having an open world and a cast of 6 characters, something Abyss and Phantasia did ages ago.

              I'd stay quiet if it was just one aspect, but the whole game revolves around this. You meet the super hyped from the trailer Ethel. First thing she says? She has the hots for some guy. Every character interaction between everyone else? Pushing a shipping. It's exactly like Arise when they swapped the funny skits with shipping skits. Where was the soul? Where was the two autistic guys debating insect battles? Where was the blonde guy get fucking destroyed at his history hobby? It's all fucking shipping. If not the main couple, it's the brown dude and the blonde bombshel, if not them, the kids. It's the same shit in XC3. Eunie has a fucking important revelation about their world, starts to enter PTSD, does she develop as character or we get to know more about the situation? Nope, the Afro dude gives her tea and they share a touching moment. Fuck off. At least Melia getting cucked was funny.

I get it if you haven't played a lot of tales games, but jesus you've got a low bar if you think those are highlights. That's literally just the same anime-esque tropes you'll find in literally any JRPG post 2015. Even kiseki is chock full of shit like this.

            anon, Origin was created to solve the issue of both universes colliding which would kill everyone
            but the process was brought to a halt when Z was born
            freeing Origin from Z's grasp meant Origin would finally able to finish doing its thing
            the entire game is basically just a simulation made by Origin that happens in a split second, which is why the post-credits scene is just a continuation of the intro scene with child Noah, time finally began to move again thanks to Noah & co

      best story in the series even with all the contrived shit
      my favorite party too, only sena is somewhat boring, the heroes are all amazing
      OST is better than 1, slightly worse than 2, same for the battle system
      overall a much better game than 2, although 1 is still my favorite for personal reasons

    • 5 days ago
      Anonymous

      Its a much more complete and holistic experience than either 1 or 2. While 1 and 2 both did individual things better, 3 lacks some of the glaring flaws. Much better side content and battle system than 1 and none of the tedious bullshit like gacha and field skills in 2. The Hero system is a straight improvement over blades in every way. Combat starts slow but when you start to unlock fusion arts and arts cancelling it genuinely speeds up to an action game pace that consists of more that topple locking or orb stacking. Overall I think I still like the combat in 2 better, but it ended up being a lot closer than I had feared when I learned you could not move autoattack cancel. Chapter 5-6 is pure Xenokino and took inspiration from some of the unused plans for Xenogears. Its not perfect, I wished their was a connection to the Conduit, as the lore and references are one of the main reasons I got into Xenoblade after playing Xenogears, but it isn't a make or break thing because it does other things in the story well. Also I liked the what the villain represented thematically but I didn't like the execution. It felt like he had 2 separate motivations, a Wilhelm-esque "shield the world from uncertainty" shtick that resonated with me and felt in line with the greater Xeno series and a cartoonishly evil "I'm doing this to amuse myself and my audience" shtick and I really could not parse how they related to one another. Overall a great game for Xenofans and the obvious schizoposting against it is hilarious.

          Do you care to explain? I'm not all up on my xenosaga lore so there is a good chance I am misinterpreting it but to me it felt like he was more Wilhelm, trying to keep the world repeating rather than letting it continue to go down the path of an uncertain future.

            He's kind of both i guess. Its wilhelm in terms of having a motive to keep everything in stasis, but his make literally came from the collective unconscious of people's fears about being unable to move forward, which is what gave rise to moebius in the first place.

              That makes sense. Z being some sort of wave existence would really heighten my enjoyment of him even more. I got a lot of gnosis vibes from the Mobius as well, obviously they were a redux of Testaments being the souls unwilling to move on that turned into monstrous forms scratched that Gnosis itch. I hoped it would be more explicit, but looking back it really did have a lot of Xenogears/saga themes in it even without the conduit.

      It was fun and great, but I honestly wish they had not marketed it or attempted to connect it to 1 and 2 given how self contained it is. If it was changed from Melia and Nia, Bionis Sword and Uryan Titan to new OCs and locations, this is a spin-off. I get they probably didn't want to do "Shulk meets Rex" again for 3, but like, what the hell's the point of having it all mix for no real payoff. Just a few "I CLAPPED WHEN I SAW IT" with the dialogue, music choices and the ending Monado/Rex photo. It really set up high expectations of seeing what happened after XC 1 and 2 after they beat their Zanza/Malos and then it's basically irrelevant. I would rather it stood on its own two legs trying to tell a story rather than lean on "hey, remember this?" references that go nowhere. Fuck. The game was fun and great, just ruined by what I was expecting.

            what's the difference in you destroying it or it running out?
            wouldn't they die either way?

              The flame clocks are how Moebius feeds on people's lives, you feed it with life energy from the other side so you don't get succed yourself
              Destroying the flame clock severs their connection from Moebius, so no more life drain

    The graphics on display in Xenoblade 3 are extremely detailed for the hardware, it's more akin to Xenoblade X on the WiiU in terms of technical achievement, not quite Breath of the Wild but being number 2 isn't bad, in spite of the low resolution and framerate issues the games visuals are stupidly detailed, and there's a definite improvement in terms of geometry, rigging, animation and textures compared to Xenoblade 2, the characters are more comparable to the ones seen in Tales of Arise with conservative nips and tucks to things like hands, and lower res textures. If Monolith Soft were to float character detail within where it is now they could easily be doing 1080p/60fps on Nintendo's next gen hardware, but considering that they opted to boost the visual fidelity of just about everything compared to Xenoblade 2 on the same hardware that's probably not going to happen, personally I'd rather something more conservative that performs well over something like FF7 Remake which has completely ridiculous levels of detail, at least for the characters.
