Many were claiming XC3 would be delayed like BotW2 and Nintendo took that personally.

Lmao. I wasn't expecting a drastic delay for XC3, but I was banking on it getting delayed to November or December. 

Considering I expected BOTW2 to get delayed into 2023 (or a good chance), I see it as a win that we're getting XC3 over a month earlier. 



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

Its not often a game gets pushed up 1-2 months, I wonder if Splatoon 3 was planned for July and got delayed so they pushed this up to fill its spot.

Wait, you can play as up to 7 people at once in battle?!!

There seems to be a merge mechanic where two characters merge into one and become a mech-like monster. I hope we get a XC3 Direct like we did for XC2.



Signature goes here!

OMG OMG OMG earlier than September, didn't expect this , Monolith Soft are magicians of game development.

Edit: The music that starts at 0:35, is that battle music, it sounds amazing (not that that's unexpected, but still).

Spoiler!
It's like a less distressing version of the Homs who were turned into Mechon in XC1.

Splatoon 3 was scheduled for a summer release without a specific month being named. So yes, the most likely scenario is that XC3's and Splatoon 3's release dates got swapped.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Maybe they're even planning on Splatoon 3 being a launch title for Switch 2.
