The Wii's Last Great RPG Gets an Early Mark

Wii RPG Xenoblade Chronicles, originally not due out in Europe until September, is having its release slid up not by a few days, but by a few weeks. It'll now be out on August 19.

Developed by Monolith, Xenoblade Chronicles was released in Japan last year. There are currently no plans for a North American release of the game, something which has led to gamers initiating a campaign aimed at getting it (and other similar titles) localised.

Those in Europe and Australasia who are getting the game in August will be able to get it in a giant fancy box.
