RPG enthusiasts have been on the edge of their seats to see if two titles over the last year, The Last Story and Xenoblade, would be making it to America. Prospects are still bleak for the former, but chances just got a little higher for the latter, as Nintendo of Europe has confirmed today it will be bringing Xenoblade Chronicles (a retitling of Xenoblade) to PAL territories. The game is slated to release sometime later this year, and will feature both English and Japanese voice tracks, along with subtitles in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. Unfortunately the Wii is region locked, but I can think of a few people who’d be willing to import it with a Wii that can play it because of the language options alone.
Xenoblade is known for being the latest game by Monolith Soft, the company behind Xenosaga, consisting of many veterans from Square during its golden age. Their most notable works there include Xenogears and earlier Final Fantasy titles. You can check the official site for the port here.
