Despite heavy fan demand for Monolith Soft's role-playing masterpiece, Nintendo of America still hasn't revealed plans to bring Xenoblade Chronicles to North America. Who will step in and save U.S. role-players from missing out on what is arguable one of the best RPGs of this console generation? Would you believe…
Not that this will be too big a surprise for suffering American Wii owners, but in Nintendo's latest release schedule (out today), there's still no mention of Xenoblade Chronicles being due for North America. It's still scheduled for release in Europe, however, on August 19.
Hey, Nintendo. If you won't take heed of polite letters and emails from fans asking for Japanese games to be localised, maybe listen to this guy instead.
Last week, Wii owners in North America desperate to play games like Xenoblade, The Last Story and Pandora's Tower, games already released in Japan, pleaded with Nintendo of America to bring those games stateside. Today, Nintendo has responded with a resounding, "Eh, probably not gonna happen."
