Xenoblade Chronicles Import Review
Perhaps one of the last massive RPGs for the Wii, does Xenoblade Chronicles live up to the hype?
09.28.11 - 9:01 PM

I think we all know the story of Xenoblade Chronicles (or just "Xenoblade" in Japan) and the surprising news that while Nintendo of America was passing on localizing the title, Nintendo of Europe was all over it.

Since our European friends miss out on so many titles, it's not something you see often. One of the last high profile RPGs to skip North America and land in Europe was Quintet/Enix's Terranigma in 1996.

Anyway, preamble aside, new(ish) reviewer Greig McCallum has put MonolithSoft's RPG through its paces and feels that the game... well, you'll have to read it.

Go read it below, and keep your fingers crossed that with the game translated to English, we might still, maybe, perhaps, hopefully, see it on these shores one day. Also, make sure you listen to our new episode of Random Encounter where our podcast staff discusses Xenoblade Chronicles!
