Xenoblade Chronicles Confirmed Coming to the US, JRPG Fans Rejoice.

It started as a rumor, with a picture of a Gamestop computer showing Xenoblade Chronicles as scheduled for release on April the 3rd (no, not April the 1st) next year, then it has been pretty much confirmed by Nintendo publishing multiple pieces of artwork from the game on its official facebook page, and finally it has been sealed with the opening of an actual product page on the Nintendo website, making the release as official as it can get.

So, there you have it, one of the best JRPGs published this generation is coming this side of the Pacific Ocean and North American gamers will finally be able to join us Europeans in playing this little gem (that I reviewed and video-reviewed here, giving it a well deserved 9.5).

Of course the internet exploded in festive jubilation as soon as the news started to spread. That’s quite understandable, considering that the quality of the game is undeniable.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
