There is big news for North American Nintendo fans, as it looks like Xenoblade Chronicles will finally be coming to the continent!
After a user on NeoGAF posted what is believed to be a release list for GameStop, there was an entry titled "Xenoblade Chronicles GS Exclusive" and a release date of April 3rd 2012.
Since then, Nintendo has added three pieces of concept art from the game to its Facebook page, cementing the fact that one of this generation's best JRPGs will be coming to North America at long last.
And now an official game page at the Nintendo website for Xenoblade has been put up, revealing that the game will only be available to order from GameStop and Nintendo itself. A release period of April 2012 is also up there.
Whether Operation Rainfall had any effect on the decision to bring Xenoblade to North America is unknown. Nor do we know if the other two games in the operation, The Last Story and Pandora's Tower, will be released there either. But this is still great news that one of the games of the generation will get the North American release it deserves.
Check out our review of this fantastic game here, which we awarded 10/10.
