A pen pal of mine from Brazil imported this. He said it's the first time he's turned on his Wii since Monster Hunter Tri and he doubts he'll probably leave it on for the next several hours. He hasn't told me much about it though. I need to import this soon. It looks amazing.

I took a look at the system messages last week and it turned out I hadn't used my Wii since last April, when I played some Wii Sports with my six year old cousin. Now tyhat I've got Xenoblade, I'm playing two hours a day on avarage. Well, not counting the first weekend, because I had a great excuse to play it 7-8 hours a day: deadline! :D

Also, the game is popping up in several sales top 10s for both Wii games and videogames in general. It seems like it's doing better than even NoE expected, because some people are already having trouble finding a copy. There may be hope for an American release yet!

I gave up on NOA's coy little dance about whether or not they will localize it and I have it coming in the mail.

I haven't turned on my Wii since Sakura Wars came out (unless it was a short gaming session with Wii Sports with my husband). Its been gathering dust for so long because so many of the "good" games that come out are Nintendo stuff we lost interest in (Mario, Zelda) and we see so much crap on the shelves (an M&M game? Really?).

I'm looking forward to playing Xenoblade and the fact that I am having to import an already-translated game because of NOA makes me wonder what is going on in their heads. Glad NOE has three great games lined up!

Xenoblade comes out here (New Zealand) on the 1st of September, so I'll definitely be getting a hold of it. I'll tell you folks how it turns out.

It's gotta be remade in HD for the Wii-U, and without the obnoxious (but endearing) Brittish accents. 

The accents are jarring, but... *head asplode* Nintendo

There is a dialect selector, and its better than not having english text at all.

I prefer English in any form.  But if I were to release a huge game like this in North America, I wouldn't leave the dub this way.

Why not? It should be kind of novel for American gamers. You know, like the Dragon Quest VIII voice overs.

...what?

The voice acting isn't the greatest, but to request a dub just because you don't like the accent? I'm finding it hard not to be a bit offended.

Yeah, but... it's just not ideal.  I am not trying to say that they shouldn't release it in North America in this state, but if it were to be a full effort, localize it completely.

It isn't like DQ8 or FF12... it is foreign.  I am surprised I feel this way, honestly.

I'm not requesting a re-dub, I'm saying that we shouldn't be surprised that the game isn't a shoe-in for a North American audience/release.

I love Dr. Who, before you get all aggro.

But have you heard what NoA tends to do with dubs? Besides, even if they don't screw it up, they probably use the some old voice actors we've heard in 100 other RPG's. I once went six months without playing a game that didn't have Johnny Yong Bosch in it and it was not something I did on purpose...

Not that it really matters, I guess. I'm not American, I have no reason to buy the American edition and most people don't play and finish 15+ RPGs a year.

All true.  I hope they are re-dubbing it for North America only because that means they are actually releasing it in North America, nothing more.

Fucking national pride... :P  And it's not the accent that is troublesome, it's the dialect.

My friend imported the EU version and we played the first few hours last night. Totally overwhelming. I want to get lost in this RPG.

Is that the video game equivalent of "I'm not racist, one of my best friends is black!"?
