Dont worry, Nintendo of America still love you a little

It’s been a long and painful fight to get the game to America, or perhaps Nintendo of America were going to do it anyway but Xenoblade Chronicles will be coming to North America in April next year.

The game this morning showed up on a US retailer GameStop computer system, Nintendo America then uploaded some art for the game to its Facebook page. An hour later it was official.

North America, you know how it feels to be a PAL gamer. Congrats. Why not read our Xenoblade Chronicles review to see what you’re been missing.

XENOBLADE CHRONICLES COMING TO NINTENDO’S WII CONSOLE IN SPRING

Dec. 2, 2011

It’s man vs. machine in a new game coming to Nintendo’s Wii™ console in spring. Xenoblade Chronicles™ asks players to use the Monado blade to take on a seemingly endless series of invading Mechon robots in a sweeping role-playing adventure.

The main character is Shulk, a weapons researcher who must confront the Mechon by wielding the ancient Monado blade. It’s the only weapon that has any effect against the Mechon, and it also enables Shulk to see the future.

Players can customize their characters with a variety of weapons and armor choices, as well as headgear, boots and gloves. As in many role-playing games, players can then gain experience and upgrade their characters. Players can watch their enemies, learn their tactics and unleash real-time counterattacks.

The vast open world of Xenoblade Chronicles is ripe for exploration. Players can avert their focus from the main story and venture out looking for other challenges and side quests. Hidden areas and unique monsters are scattered throughout the game’s massive world, which players can explore freely.

Xenoblade Chronicles has already launched in Japan and Europe, and has received unanimously positive reviews, including several perfect scores.

Xenoblade Chronicles will be available exclusively through U.S. GameStop retail locations, http://www.gamestop.com and http://www.nintendo.com at a suggested retail price of $49.99 in the United States. Additional information about the game will be announced in the future.
