Xenoblade Chronicles Posters are limited edition pre-orders in Europe

Xenoblade Chronicles will be released on August 19th exclusively for Wii in Europe announced Nintendo, who is publishing the highly anticipated Monolith Soft RPG.

Nintendo first-party Monolith Soft, you may recall, are the developers behind the GameCube-exclusive Baten Kaitos series, as well as hits like the Xenosaga series (PS2) and Disaster: Day of Crisis for Wii.

  • Additionally, Nintendo has announced an exclusive pre-order bundle for those who plop down money on to pre-order Xenoblade. Doing so will net you an exclusive red-colored Classic Controller Pro, as well as three exclusive A1 posters electronically signed by Monlith founder Tetsuya Takahashi and featuring artwork from the game!

    The English version will not only contain the original Japanese voice-overs with English subtitles available as an option, but will also include re-recorded English voice-overs.

    Xenoblade Chronicles takes you to the stunning lands of Bionis and Mechonis where the vast landscapes result in a promised “over 100 hours” of immersive gameplay. Enjoy the freedom of being able to reach whatever you can see in the distance, exploring and plotting your way around the many quests. Xenoblade Chronicles is a real departure from traditional RPGs due to its real-time combat and the freedom you are given to roam the seamless universe without having to endure random encounters.

    If you want to get your hands on the special collector’s edition pre-order bundle listed above, you better hurry as pre-order bundles are limited while supplies last!

    Sadly, there is still absolutely no word on Xenoblade Chronicles being released stateside. Which is a crying shame! Hopefully a North American release will still happen, as it makes absolutely no sense to deny American fans this epic adventure. Which could be an excellent Nintendo “swan song” for the console before the Wii U releases.

    Here is a trailer for Xenoblade Chronices.

    And here is more gameplay footage.
