On April 6th, 2012, a JRPG will come to North America for the Nintendo Wii. This is no ordinary Japanese RPG, this is one of the three JRPGs that had to be fought for to be brought to North America, and it is also an amazing game.
If you know what I'm talking about, then you've probably heard of Operation Rainfall, the group mainly fighting and sending letters to Nintendo of America, telling them to bring Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story (Created by renowned Hironobu Sakaguchi
, the creator of Final Fantasy
) and Pandora's Tower.
It took a lot of letters and passionate emails to get Xenoblade coming here, and it will only be sold at Gamestop (or Gamestop's Canadian equal, EB Games) and on Nintendo's website.
And, as I mentioned earlier, this isn't your average JRPG. JRPGs are rare on the Wii, and this particular title is revolutionary. It's got an enormous world, an interesting battle system, lots of weapons and things to craft and good, interesting characters.
If this game is not supported when it hits the shelves of Gamestop and the e-shelves of nintendo.com, Nintendo of America will not bring more RPGs to North America. This game and The Last Story must be supported!
If you own a Nintendo Wii and enjoy Japanese games, RPGs or JRPGs, please buy this game and support it, and if not this one, then please support The Last Story. we have to show that these games are popular in North America.
If we don't support Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story, our extremely slim chance of getting Pandora's Tower (so slim that it is very unlikely that it comes to North America) will become impossible, and we may not even get Fire Emblem: Awakening.
Xenoblade Chronicles will be availible on April 6th, 2012
Preordering Xenoblade Chronicles gets you a bonus artbook.
Xenoblade Chronicles will be available for purchase at Gamestop, EB Games, and nintendo.com
Xenoblade Chronicles got a 9/10 by IGN Europe ([link]), 9/10 on Gamespot ([link]), and 9/10 on Eurogamer ([link]).
There is both a Japanese and English voice option.
Info about The Last Story
A summer release is expected.
The Last Story was created by the creator of Final Fantasy.
There is multiplayer.
It will be published by XSEED games in North America, instead of Nintendo.
Please spread the word! We must support these titles and show Nintendo of America that we want more RPGs like these!
