Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition was released last week worldwide, and it looks like it’s off to a great start in the United Kingdom. According to data from Gfk, it was the best-selling game during its launch week in the country (physical sales only). It sold more than twice the number of units as the original on Wii, back in 2011.

Unfortunately, it didn’t manage to outsell Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but sales are said to be “slightly below” it. The main reason behind that drop is attributed to Covid-19: because of the lockdown in the country, all High Street games retail stores were closed last week. As such, it’s more than likely than a significant number of players ended up getting the game digitally.

Nintendo Minute is never a minute! We hope you’re having a good week. We discovered that there is a wheel in Animal Crossing: New Horizons so of course we HAD to do a spin the wheel challenge. The loser has to dress up in their most ridiculous outfit and recite a poem about why they lost. You don’t want to miss it! How are your islands coming along? As always, thanks so much for watching and we’ll see you next week!
