Xenoblade finally to Jump the Pond!
By: Lisa Walkosz
Let's just say this, I am 120 hours into Xenoblade as we speak right now. It's a fantastic game, huge in scope, amazing graphics for the Wii console, a great Brittish accented dub, and enough JRPG goodness to last me probably another 30 hours. I highly recommend this game.
That being said, when I let my gaming buddies know it's Europe only, they seem disinterested as they don't want to go through the trouble of importing and hacking their console to play the European version.
Today, via NeoGaf, an employee at GameStop saw in the database a listing for Xenoblade Chronicles, coming out April 3rd @ $49.99, and a GameSpot Exclusive.
Although this has not been confirmed, it would be an interesting twist of Nintendo actually listening to the campaign Operation Rainfall that has petitioned them to bring games stateside such as Last Story, Xenoblade, and Pandora's Tower. Since the game is already completely localized, it's not too much of a stretch. Can the hardcore fans see a victory in sight? We'll have to wait for official word.
EDIT: Nintendo just officially anounced via their official Facebook page:
It's Reyn Time Baby!
