How Long is Xenoblade Chronicles 3

With the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 scheduled for 29th July, fans are curious to know more about the upcoming action RPG from Nintendo and Monolith Soft. And one common question is exactly how long is Xenoblade Chronicles 3 going to be once it releases?

Well, luckily you don't have to wonder for too long, as today will look at answering that exact question. As we look at previous iterations of the game and give you a reasonable estimate as to how long Xenoblade Chronicles will be to play and complete in its entirety.

The world of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, called Aionios, will be the stage for the adventures of Noah, Mio, and their friends as they battle creatures, discover new lands, and stand against political chaos and violence that threatens their homelands. This involves two major nations that act as the opposing forces of this conflict, Keves, and Agnus, and will likely contribute to most of the plot and narrative of the game in that our heroes will find themselves involved.

With all that said, the game is likely to have quite a lengthy run time, and when considering the previous games in the franchise (Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and 2), will have a play-time of roughly 50-70 hours. We reckon that with the massive conflict taking place, on top of the adventuring and monster-slaying that can be done, the game will push more toward the 70-hour mark or above.

This is all taking into account only completing the game's main story and the possible leveling required to clear it. For those 100% completionist players out there, we can expect the game to provide at least 150 hours of content, with the main quest, and all side quests and objectives combined.

While there is no official information from the developers on how long the game will run as of yet, we expect the game to be somewhat longer than our estimates. Nintendo is usually a strong advocate for making games with tons of content to explore, and side quests to complete, making our estimates fairly conservative, to say the least.

But one thing is for sure, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will be packed full of brand new and exciting content for players to enjoy once it releases on 29th July. And now you know exactly how long you can expect to be enjoying all of it.
