Finally, as a bonus, here’s the official one ESRB description – the game has a T-rating:

This is a role-playing game where players follow warriors through a conflict between two nations. From a third-person perspective, players complete quests and engage in melee combat against enemies (e.g., animals, creatures, human boss characters). Fight is highlighted by shock sounds, explosions and screams of pain. Cutscenes depicts additional cases of violence: characters impaled with swords; a character who shoots himself off-screen; a man sticking himself off the screen. A handful of scenes depict blood (e.g., drops falling from a wounded character; dripping blood on a character’s face). Some fantasy figures / creatures are designed with revealing armor and / or anatomy (eg deep cleavage, partially exposed breasts). The words “sh * t”, “ar * ehole” and “b * tch” appear in the dialog.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will be released for Switch on July 29, 2022.
