Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has sold 14,000 copies during its first week in the UK. While this may not seem impressive, Xenoblade X debuted with 10,500 copies sold, while the original Xenoblade sold a measly 6,000 copies, on the hit Nintendo Wii no less. Xenoblade Chronicles X had a 73% increase over the original, while Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has about a third of an increase over XXenoblade Chronicles 2 has over a 100% increase over the first game. Considering how lauded the original is, this is impressive.

The UK is definitely not the market for these games. Xenoblade X and Xenoblade Chronicles sold approximately 250,000 copies in Europe, so it would be interesting to see how it sold in its first week in Europe as a whole. While these aren’t great numbers to start out in the UK, Xenoblade Chronicles only sold 6,000 copies its first week. It ended up selling 250,000 copies across Europe. The first two games, as a whole, ended up selling just over 900,000 units a piece. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 could surpass one million.

The game has gotten great reviews and it was released on a system that sold better than any during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, despite the fact that there was no discount for Nintendo’s smash hit. The Nintendo Switch is not even into its first full year of release.

These numbers are not as bad as you’d think.
