While i don't doubt the 3DS's power, i felt rather curious to wonder considering Xenoblade is an open-world kind of JRPG. Though considering the 3DS has more memory/RAM than the Wii i believe, could it be pretty easy for the 3DS to handle it? Considering it seemed pretty taxing on the Wii imo.

Such a large open-world JRPG would be terrible on any handheld.

How so?
The 3DS has better hardware than the Wii if I remember well
Xenoblade allows you to save anywhere.
The texture problems of Xenoblade would look a lot more bearable in a smaller resolution too
The only problem would be the music and sound quality
Just when I thought you couldn't possibly become any dumber.
You go and do something like that.

Maybe, if the 3ds can handle MH3, I don't see why it wouldn't be able to handle Xenoblade

Took a bit of digging, found that Xenoblade is 5.98 GB. Since 3DS carts can go up to 8 GB, yes it can hold Xenoblade.
Stop reading my sig, you are wasting time doing so.

It could handle it. I doubt we'd ever see such a game on the 3DS but there's nothing about the 3DS technically incapable of running it.

And as Shadow Stalker said the 3DS has the potential to have 8GB carts. That's also not going to limit it any.
NEVER judge a game you have not played.

How does Xenoblade compare to Monster Hunter Tri? Isn't that game pretty big too?
