“Xenoblade Chronicles 3” made a great impact on the gaming industry when it was released in July. But the game has been leading to controversy in spite of its success ever since its release.
Due to a minor setback, the “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Special Edition had to face delay in selected locations only. Now, there might be confusion about the name, let us clarify that the Special Edition is officially known as “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Collector’s Edition. Now that we have cleared the doubt, we are getting back to the point.
After quite some months, the “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Special Edition started shipping but this time physical copies were available in the US and many other countries. Then again, the problem continues because the “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Special/Collector’s Edition was released in the UK and EU, but not all gamers could have their hands on this exclusive collection.
What Happened To “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Special Edition?
On 12th October 2022, the UK and European My Nintendo Store were ready to take pre-orders for “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Collector’s Edition. Since it was already announced that the pre-order option will be available in the UK and Europe during the first half of October, fans were impatiently waiting for it.
However, Nintendo couldn’t anticipate the amount of craze that “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Special Edition has gained over the last few days. Thus, only a few minutes after making the pre-order option live, the site crashed. The high volume of interested customers was struggling to book their copy because of the high traffic on their website.
My Nintendo Store displayed the message,
“We’re currently experiencing a high number of customers on the site, please come back later.”
This also led to the frustration of the fans since they have been wanting to order the “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Special Edition for the longest time now. And the creators are only pushing away the release date.
Adding to that frustration is the tension of not being able to place the order to have your hands on the game as soon as it launches. Thus, My Nintendo Store should have predicted the outcome of their much-hyped game and taken all the means to prevent the unprecedented crash of the site.
“Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Special Edition Is Available For Pre-Order Again
After having quite some losses from the site’s crash. My Nintendo Store is live again with its normal operations in the UK and Europe. However, on 13th October 2022, the “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Collector’s Edition wasn’t on the site. It is quite confusing since the site is functional but the option of “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Special Edition is not visible.
Fans are panicking since they cannot understand if the games have been sold out completely. This led to disappointment to the fans and they even tweeted to Nintendo UK,
“Little annoyed @NintendoUK. Earlier today I got all the way through ordering the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Collector’s Edition, all the way to bank verification, which seemed to go through only to have an error after. And lo and behold, I don’t have any new orders…”

Another fan said, “I haven’t seen a single soul who managed to pre-order the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Collector’s Edition on Twitter. And now that the site is back up, it’s sold out. How, when, and who? @NintendoEurope”
Though Nintendo didn’t answer or provide any clarification, its immediate action made the fans happy. On 14th October 2022, “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Special Edition was again available for pre-ordering on the My Nintendo Store.
Now instead of getting their hands on the full bundle, gamers will be getting extra content like a concept art book, and a steel case with a large outer box in the “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Collectible Edition.

The bundle is expected to ship around 21st October 2022 but even if you have managed to order the “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Special Edition, at times it displays a message like, “This product is available on backorder, please expect extended delivery times”.
Thus, there might be delays in receiving your “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Special Edition and there is nothing to worry about.
As of now, the site, My Nintendo Store is very much active and surprisingly, the “Xenoblade Chronicles 3” Collector’s Edition is available in stock. So, whoever has missed out on the initial stages of ordering can now order it. But do it fast, who knows, it gets all sold out soon.
