From developer Monolith Soft and published by Nintendo, a role-playing video game, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, will be released on July 29, 2022 for Nintendo Switch owners to enjoy. It is of course part of the open-world Xenoblade Chronicles series, and those who have played previous titles may want to know what the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 file size is.

As players prepare to join Noah, Mio, and their friends as they traverse epic landscapes of Aionios, battle fierce creatures, and fight to break the endless cycle of violence that binds their homeland together, the first battle could be to free up enough space on their Nintendo Switch.

Those who have played previous Xenoblade titles on the Nintendo Switch will know that the series takes no hits on your storage. Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition weighs 13.7 GB while Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is 13.2 GB.

According to the game’s official Nintendo eShop page, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is 14,129,00MB. That’s without any DLC or a possible Day 1 update.

Keep in mind that the Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite only have 32GB of internal storage, which of course can be expanded with MicroSD cards.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will also feature waves of DLC content through the Expansion Pass.
