One of the best role-playing games on the Nintendo Switch that also happens to be exclusive is Monolith Soft's Xenoblade Chronicles 2. The title made its debut on the system in December 2017 and is still considered a "must-have" game for seasoned adventurers.
In terms of sales, we already heard last September how the sequel had exceeded expectations outside of Japan when Monolith Soft Executive Director Tetsuya Takahashi revealed he was surprised to see so many people within North America and Europe pick up the game.
Now, in a recent interview with 4Gamer, Takahashi has revealed more than 1.73 million copies of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 have been sold as of March 2019. Sure, this figure might not be anywhere near Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sales, but if it can crack the 2 million mark, there's a chance the open-world action JRPG could eventually surpass lifetime sales of certain other major Switch releases. It's also the best-selling game in the Xenoblade series so far.
In the same interview dating back to last September, Takahashi said he wasn't willing to provide any concrete details about the future of the series, but right now, it looks rather bright. Especially when considering the ongoing reports about Monolith expanding and hiring more staff for new projects.
