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 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
Xenoblade Chronicles got a 9/10 by IGN Europe (…), 9/10 on Gamespot (…), and 9/10 on Eurogamer (…).
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!

AAAAand I put in a pre-order for Last Story. Eldest child is grinding through Ocarina & Skyward Sword, alternately. Someday, I hope to complete something. Anything.

I can't wait for The Last Story!
Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword...aren't they like, the longest Zelda games?!?! o_o
Poor you...

Long is good. The goal is to take at least 3 years so eldest child can reach the teens and play T games without having to argue too much with me. (The argument about E10 games took one week and many tears -- not effective, also some math about percentages and weeks until age 10 -- effective.) It may not take so long, because she is the queen of walkthrough research.
I'd get through skyward sword faster if I didn't have to stop and enjoy the music/visuals so often. I just stand there and hang for a bit before pressing on.

So she'll be able to play Twilight Princess once she's 13, then, right?
I don't like walkthroughs very much unless I am genuinely stuck, or if I've completed the game once and I want to 100% it(and I'm too dumb to do it myself.)
I also hang around in Skyward Sword. It's a very pretty game.

Have you played Mario Galaxy? It was also very visually amazing.

She and her bff love walkthroughs, as do I. Good for all the games we will never play (different system, too much good stuff in life, etc.) Her friend doesn't even play any games, just walkthroughs and guides (it is so cute, watching eldest child play madly, hack slash flail slash, while bff proudly gives advice from the couch).

What style of game is Mario Galaxy? As a household, we loathe platformers because We Have No Rhythm At All (flail flail flail). Except de Blob, which I love for the music and the splotchiness. And Kirby, because of the adorableness.

That does sound cute!

De Blob is an amazing game. Mario Galaxy has great music, and I think you and your family would like it. It doesn't require a whole lot of Rhythm, and it's a really pretty-looking game.
Also, I think it's cheaper now.

I caved and bought it ... now, my children are carrying me kicking and screaming away from the wii in order to go camping .... nooooooo, don't make me eat outdoor oatmeal, I wanna kill bunnits!

How T for teen is this? This matters in a house of not T children wild to play it.

Never mind. Blood dripping from the claws of the enemy, eeep! Eldest child is off the game until she finishes ALL the Zelda games (which should take enough years, since no games on school days).

The first Zelda will take will a few of the others...
Well, Zelda games always take a while to get through.

You've probably played them all, right? I haven't played all. Only these:
Four Swords
Skyward Sword
Twilight Princess
Zelda II
Ocarina of Time

But I really want to play Wind Waker and Majora's Mask...
I hope to get to them someday.

Haha...poor you...
I don't like outdoor oatmeal... -_-

I'm sure the bunnits won't miss you for a while. ^_^
