Xenoblade Chronicles Full Website Opens
Also inside: Episode 2 of the Let's Play video series and a huge gallery update.
08.14.11 - 2:37 AM

We posted a few days ago about Nintendo of Europe's initiative to educate prospective buyers of what Xenoblade Chronicles is all about in the form of a new video series.

The company has added a second "Let's Play" video to the series. Episode 2 features more exploration through the game's expansive environments, some explanation of the Arts and quest systems, and a deeper look into some battle system elements.

In addition to this video, the 'teaser' site for the game has been replaced with a full website, detailing story, character and gameplay aspects. It is, in fact, a re-interpretation of the Japanese Xenoblade website, albeit by forgoing Flash, a more lightweight one (and better for mobile browsing). You'll be able to spend a lot of time on here, as it's fairly in-depth, so I recommend you do so.

If you're not in an 'information' mood and just want to look at more images of the game, we've added over sixty screen shots to our updated gallery below.

Xenoblade Chronicles launches in Europe on August 19th, and apparently Nintendo of America is - shockingly - aware of its existence and will at least be watching sales in Europe to see if it proves popular. So if you guys run out and buy it, maybe we'll get to play it too. Just a thought!
