Is it possible NoA is just waiting for an HD port on the Wii U?

No.

Seriously, though, you aren't the first person to suggest this but I can't see where this idea is even coming from other than pure wishful thinking.  While Xenoblade seems to be doing OK it's still hardly one of Nintendo's triple-A franchises that they would bother to remake for this sort of thing.  Especially so soon after the original came out.  What makes you think that such a project even exists?

I don't think such a project exists, I was purely pontificating.

OK? It's already in the top ten in sales in the UK. I'd say that's a little better than OK.

I know how to add one more copy. Kay, did you know Xenoblade lets you undress your party members to make them more awesome? Your favourite female party members could be wrestling (a toad/some fish/other creature) in the mud in their underwear if you order a copy now.

Finally started this today. We have something truly special here, I hope everyone on this forum gets a chance to play it.

It would sell Wii-Us.  If you look at the minor graphical enhancement that Twilight Princess Wii got over the Gamecube version, it would follow that simply rendering the same models and stuff at HD resolutions would be an option.

If you imagine them redoing all of the games graphics to take full advantage of the Wii-U, then heck no, I don't see that happening.

It's part wishful thinking, and part "why the heck isn't this in North America?"  There's just gotta be a reason.

No one is talking about the music. How's the soundtrack? Anything memorable, or is it just "there"? Please fill me in on the music side of the game.

Actually, for everyone on this board this game is obligatory.

It's everything between pretty good and mediocre. I have to play more before judging the rest of the soundtrack, but at the moment the only track that stood out as freaking awesome was the title theme.

I've only played a bit, too early to judge. I already heard some nice tracks but nothing memorable. Hm, haven't really paid attention to the title screen music, need to give it a listen.

It suits the game very well. The moment you set your first step into the great plains and this starts playing, it sends chills down your spine.

BTW if you've got an European copy of the game and are a member of NoE's Club Nintendo, you can download a 12 track soundtrack for free.

Yeah, what she said.

In other news, I love the boss battles and big monster battles in this. I think my boyfriend will love the Mechon. If they release figures of them, I'm sure he will buy them. :P

I talked about the music extensively in our review of the Ost :)

Got the game yesterday but my brand-new computer is refusing to write onto my SD card (for the Joystik mod). :(   I can't seem to locate a way to mod it without the SD card.

I was gonna buy this anyways, gonna remove the region locking from my Wii sometime soon then order it online. Either way this comment makes me want it more if it's true.
