Do you guys remember that Wii U exclusive Xenoblade Chronicles X, the sequel to the Wii's surprise hit Xenoblade Chronicles? Of course you do, because we've done about 10,000 stories on it. Well, it's out now in Japan, and despite missing the number one spot for digital downloads for its first week in action, it has officially claimed its rightful place atop that list for the entire month of May.
