    Developed by a team who have worked on the Xeno RPGs which include the three Xenosaga games and the cult classic Xenogears.

    Details directly from producer Tetsuya Takahashi tell of how the game will be of large scale (he referenced the size of Japan most likely metaphorically to get across the idea of how big the game world is) and the game is set on the two corpses of two powerful giant beings (Kyoshin and Kishin) who fought and killed each other thousands of years ago. A war is raging between humans and a machine like race, both factions reside on each of the two departed gods, the game has used MMO style development and is similar to FFXII where enemies roam the map and you engage them in open play.

    A quote from Takahashi:

    "The game will offer an adventure of around 50 to 60 hours, said Takahashi. This time will not consist of endless leveling up. It also, he made sure to note, won't consist of endless event scenes.

    This looks surprisingly interesting. I am surprised it looks that good for a Wii game.

    Bad news.


    Monado: Beginning of The World aka Xenoblade was removed from the generic Nintendo of America List of N/A game to be release. That sucks I just hope it is just that Nintendo of America is changing the name to Xenoblade and locate the game.

    Fucking finally! I know it's only TBA, but that's most likely due to having so much to translate and dub in English, this gives me hope for The Last Story as well. C'mon Nintendo! Give us the games!

    Everything about this game looks amazing. :argh

    I hope they stick with "Xenoblade" as the title.

    Sounds much cooler than the alternative, IMO.

    XENOBLADE CHRONICLES TO REACH EUROPE

    Nintendo of Europe can confirm that it will be bringing the epic RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles to Europe for Wii. The title, already launched in Japan, brings to life a universe where two worlds called Bionis and Mechonis fight a war that knows no end.

    Join the battle for Bionis to repel the invasion of a terrifying mechanical army and uncover the secrets of a mystical sword called the Monado.

    Xenoblade Chronicles will be launching later this year for Wii featuring both English and Japanese voice-overs and will be fully subtitled in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. Keep checking for further information on this epic new adventure for Wii.









    NEW NAME Congrats EUROPE!!!!!!!!!!!!! :sun Now North America release Nintendo

    Nintendo of America registers web domain for Xenoblade Chronicles


    Is Xenoblade Chronicles going to see release in North America, or will our European friends get yet another Wii title that never makes it to the states? While Nintendo of America hasn't confirmed anything just yet, there's definitely a good indicator that the game is headed stateside.

    The domain XenobladeChronicles.com has been registered, and when you visit it you are brought to Nintendo.com. Just who purchased this domain?


    WHOIS information for xenobladechronicles.com :

    Nintendo of America has made the first step with plans for bringing the game to the states, but I won't be 100% satisfied until NoA puts out a press release.






    Come On NoA!!!!!!!!

    And there was much rejoicing! :WOW

    The Wii is region locked. Unless you modded your console you wouldn't be able to play PAL games on a NA Wii.

    The fact that it's being localized in Europe means for 99% sure that it's coming out in America as well.

    An interesting tidbit here.

    Nintendo's registered the domain name .

    Currently the site just redirects to nintendo.com, so this obviously indicates an announcement will be forthcoming in the future.

    I wonder if we'll have to wait until E3 before we hear anything more.
