Back in 2010, many were wondering if Nintendo would even release Xenoblade Chronicles in the west, and now, the franchise continues to enjoy impressive sales on a consistent basis, especially on the Switch. Earlier this year, Nintendo launched the expanded remaster of the first game, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Editionand in during their recent quarterly financial briefing, they announced impressive sales figures for it.

As of June 30 – just a little over a month from the game’s launch on May 29 – the RPG has sold 1.32 million units worldwide. Of these, 0.28 million units were sold in Japan, while 1.04 million sales came from markets outside of the country. Considering the fact that it’s a re-release of a game that many would have once considered niche, those are impressive figures.

Shortly after the launch of Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, series creator and Monolith Soft studio head Tetsuya Takahashi said that the studio wanted to “focus on increasing the value” of the Xenoblade Chronicles brand, and these sales figures will likely only serve to reinforce that desire for both Monolith and Nintendo.

During their financial meet, Nintendo also provided other updated sales figures, confirming that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold a ridiculous 22.4 million units since launch, and that the Switch’s worldwide shipments stand at 61.44 million units.
