We have some important news for you if you're impatiently waiting to pre-order Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Collector's Edition from Europe. As it seems, many people had a similar idea, which put a lot of pressure on Nintendo, so it's been delayed till after launch. It looks like processing pre-orders and delivering them in time is a logistical challenge they can't solve immediately.
Although North America had no problem with pre-orders, that can't be said for Europe. The current situation is that Europeans can't pre-order the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Collector's Edition until the game launches on July 29, 2022. But there is one good piece of news in all of this!
European customers can still play Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and enjoy new Ouroboros forms at the launch date as Nintendo will now offer content of Collector's Edition as a separate purchase. That means you can buy a digital copy of the game and later order Collector's Edition, which has a soft cover concept art book, steel case, and outer box packaging but has no game inside. You can order that edition in My Nintendo Store in September 2022.
