Xenoblade Chronicles Wii Heading to Europe

Xenoblade Chronicles Wii Heading to Europe on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Nintendo has confirmed a Western localisation of Monolith's Wii-exclusive RPG Xenoblade, complete with original voicework.

Earlier this week Nintendo UK launched the landing page for the game, Xenoblade Chronicles. Like the Japanese original, the game will include all the original mechanics, Japanese vocals but with the option to kick in English dubbing.


 

Nintendo of Europe can confirm that it will be bringing the epic RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles to Europe for Wii. The title, already launched in Japan, brings to life a universe where two worlds called Bionis and Mechonis fight a war that knows no end.

Join the battle for Bionis to repel the invasion of a terrifying mechanical army and uncover the secrets of a mystical sword called the Monado.


An Australian and North American release has yet to be confirmed.

Will you be picking up a copy of Xenoblade Chronicles when the adventure arrives in Europe?

Glad this is coming out over here, I'm really in to my RPGs at the moment and would love to give this a try, it looks epic.

It almost seems like my prayers worked. It's insane enough that it actually gets a localisation but even WITH Japanese voices still included? Smilie I smell a contender for my personal GOTY even though Skyward Sword is coming out this year too. Not even unlikely as Baten Kaitos still is my favorite RPG of all time, so I have really high hopes for any RPG from Monolith Soft. Smilie

Day 0, baby! Smilie

Im excited its coming but my tolerance of poor graphics has waivered a little. Will still buy this and I think its certain I will enjoy.

But looking at the trailer I cant help but wish the wii had a lot more to give, Such a big open world needs more. Deserves more.

Great looking game despite it's visual flaws.

Here's hoping The Last Story follows suit, we do need that game also.

I don't think it has any visual flaws, it looks fantastic and I can't wait for it to be released over here. :3

That trailer makes it look really good. Very Japanese RPG-y but also looks like an open world game. It should be interesting as long as there aren't serious flaws with the gameplay.

This will be coming out in the US too, right?

I could imagine that NoA is going to keep it unannounced till E3 in June if they don't announce it anytime soon. They'd be mad if they didn't pick up a fully localized version as they only need English for the US. Imagine if they unveiled a localization of The Last Story at E3 as well. JRPG fans would scream like little girls. Smilie

I wouldn't worry about serious flaws because pretty much all I've seen about this game was praise, some even calling it the best (J)RPG of this generation.

First this, then the last story, then earth seeker. Whoa. Want a sequel to skies of arcadia too.

I'd second that about The Last Story and Earth Seeker, it'd be awesome if they get brought over to Europe as well, and we'll have Pandora's Tower (if that turns out to be an RPG).

Awesome. Does anyone know where an English translation of the xenoblade review might be hiding?

And now a United States release needs to be confirmed.

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

I'm so glad it comes over to Europe!
And with Japanese voicetrack, too... I'm excited as SirLink is and I most certainly will pick up a copy, since the trailer pulls me into it's world and it looks at some points like Final Fantasy... great!

Hope it has more substance then FF XIII ;-Smilie

I find your lack of faith disturbing!
