Just got the PR:

XENOBLADE CHRONICLES TO REACH EUROPE

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.

Xenoblade Chronicles will be launching later this year for Wii featuring both English and Japanese voice-overs and will be fully subtitled in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. Keep checking www.nintendo.dk for further information on this epic new adventure for Wii.

Yay!

I like how all these JRPG Chronicles games (White Knight Chronicles II, and Origins + this) are announced only for Europe.

Oh wait, what I meant to say is I don't like how all these JRPG Chronicles games (White Knight Chronicles II, and Origins + this) are announced only for Europe.

Now people are going to flip out for the few hours/days/weeks/months it takes for NoA to announce the same.

This game was always intended to have a global launch.

Well enough for a localization, but not well enough to have been localized if Nintendo had a beefier schedule without it.

I only tried it for half an hour (because I completed the game twice on my Wii), but it ran fine and looked absolutely stunning. The only problem is that sound will become corrupted every once in a while, which sometimes can be fixed by pressing HOME, but not always. I don't know how often that will happen when playing through the game, but I can imagine it could be annoying.

Well if anything will get me playing my half-broken Wii again, it's this.

(Until the first time it freezes up when I haven't saved in hours. Then I'll rage and break things.)

Seriously, best news ever.

Why would Nintendo email me a press release on March 31st and call it an april fools joke?

It's real. It's happening.

Omg... Someone link to a legit source please, searching for Xenoblade on Nintendo UK or DK gives me no results at all... It's March 31st damnit, not April 1st!
