* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: In the United States: The retail game is now out of print from its highly limited run by one retailer. This gives it a high value to collectors. This is likely the reason why it's getting a port on the New UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS. The Wii version has also since been released on the Wii U Virtual Console, in Europe on August 5, 2015, North America on April 28, 2016, and Japan on August 5, 2016. Used copies can be found at nearly any Gamestop, albeit still at close to original retail price.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Xenoblade's run in North america was practically sabotaged. First off, it was released as an exclusive to ''one'' retailer, ([=GameStop=]. Who then proceeded to [[DemandOverload understock a highly hyped game]], and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lkgUQgjckU proceeded to sell new copies]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHN3oOF2tvg as "used"]], which enabled them to [[CrackIsCheaper double the price]]. The only alternative were [=eBay=] and Amazon - which went well over triple digits until the 3DS remake.

* NamesTheSame: "Beyond The Sky" is both the title of a song in ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' and in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem 6]]'', both on Nintendo platforms. Other than that, they share no relation.

** Dickson, Mumkhar, and Alvis all have unused dialogue, including for attacking high level enemies ([[spoiler:Neither Dickson or Mumkhar rejoin the party after the Battle of Sword Valley]]), burst affinity quotes, retreat quotes, [=KO=] dialogue (Alvis can't die in his only fight in the game), and Shulk, Fiora and Reyn would have Tephra Cave battle lines exclusive to the Ether Cylinder quest.

Added DiffLines:

* ModelDissonance: In ''Xenoblade Chronicles'', the cutscenes do this a lot as they are only seen from one angle. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZd2ZqE56hw Watching them with free viewing enabled reveals all sorts of nonsense]], including Shulk's body disjointing.

* SleeperHit: The game didn't receive a lot of advertising or recognition by Nintendo upon release in Europe, but positive reviews and word-of-mouth (courtesy of Operation Rainfall's efforts) made the game sell rather well, to the point where they had shortages of available copies because of the surprisingly good sales. The fact that it's the SpiritualSuccessor to ''CultClassics VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' also helped.

* NewbieBoom: Newcomers started rushing in in late 2014/early 2015 partially because of the protagonist Shulk's inclusion in the fourth installment of the ever-popular ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series, partially because of LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}} playing it, and partially because it got a [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes much-needed]] re-release on 3DS.
