Oh my god. Sorry Xenoblade, I've chosen my side.
(THANKS XSEED.)

I wasn't impressed by the game at all, but it's still nice to see it coming to America. :) It doesn't bode well for JRPGs in English in general if a pretty, high budget game by the creator of Final Fantasy with some very Western-influenced design sensibilities can't make it overseas. And while I didn't enjoy the game, there's a lot about it gameplay-wise that's a little bit different to most JRPGs, and I could see some people really, really liking it.

I must say I didn't expect it from XSEED, though, since they tend to deal with more cult-y developers. Good to see them aiming onward and upward! Maybe they'll be the company who finally manages to coerce NamDai into outsourcing localisations for the Tales series? ;D

I honestly think that the element that was most holding it back was the platform.  Hardcore games for the Wii have had an incredibly poor track record in regards to scale, no matter the quality that they are.

Well this is a nice surprise to wake up to.

Glad I decided to wait before I imported.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Yes, diss the company who gave XSeed permission to do it, why don't you?

Too bad I don't have Wii. :( Been interested in The Last Story since it always reminds so much of FFIX in a way.

Think I'm stuck having to watch a Let's Play of it, better that nothing anyway.

That's a fair point, actually. It's a problem that's present even in Japan to some extent. I remember people saying when Xenoblade was first released in Japan that it would have sold at least double the copies on the PS3. A shame, really, as the Wii does have a number of really good hardcore titles.

Wise move, making this decision and announcing it within a few days of the Euro release....something tells me the volume of Xenoblade pirating and importing influenced this to some degree....
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

HELL YES!

So then....about those limited edition details?
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
