As of right now Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is one of the most popular RPG titles on the Nintendo Switch along with the likes of Octopath Traveler. Since its release for the Nintendo Switch back in December 2017 the game has managed to sell at least 1.5 million units worldwide. The visuals and mechanics for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 looked worth my of a title that deserved to be on the PlayStation 4 and is still one of the top titles out right now for the PS4. There are some who wonder whether or not Xenoblade Chronicles 2 could have had as much success as it did if it appeared on the Wii-U.
On one hand the Wii-U was not nearly as popular as the original Wii console or even the Nintendo Switch. Also, as far as sales are concerned the Wii-U sold less than 10 million units worldwide which is an amount that the Switch console had surpassed in less than two years. However, the lack of popularity the Wii-U has in comparison to the Nintendo Switch did not stop games such as Bayonetta 2 from becoming one of the best video games on that console back in 2014. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 could have been a huge as a non-first party game for the Wii-U about four years ago. The only problem is the graphics may have looked inferior on the Wii-U compared to what we got on the Nintendo Switch.
