The original Wii version of Xenoblade Chronicles is now available for purchase on the European Wii U eShop
Oh my I'll be picking this up asap as I didn't manage to grab this on the wii.
That's amazing. Share the love, NOA.
Agreed! Why isnt this in NA? I dont understand. I would buy it right now! Hell I would pay 20 or 30 bucks for it even. Beats the hell out of 100 to 200 bucks that people are demanding for it. I saw a factory sealed copy for 500 the other day!
Never played it, and hope it comes to the U.S.
I'm really feeling it, the more widely available Xenoblade Chronicles is for the public the better.
Watch NoA not add it because of poor New 3DS sales, leaving the N3DS version as the only accessible one.
watch NoA prove you wrong.
One of the best JRPG's I played last gen, and for the Wii at that!
NA gets excluded again...common Nintendo gamestop screwed us over bad enough. At least let those who GS screwed over play it
Because it's an European announcement not worldwide.
Zelda OOT was announced first in UK and than shortly after it was announced in NA. Gamestop did hold a bunch of copies and then opened them to sell used at $79.99.
Yup, and I was one of those "Lucky" people they called and said they couldn't fill all the pre-orders despite me being one of the first people to reserve it at my store. F*** gamestop, I refuse to give them another penny.
Will this work with the wii u pro controller or do i need a wiimote anc classic controller?
Lol I don't know if you understand but you cannot download wii games on a wii system, so this alone cancel you wii remote and classic controller question, since the Wii games are downloaded thru the Wii U shop it is consider a game for the Wii U, meaning the controls for the Wii U will work, if your confuse on which controls it means the Game pad, pro controller and other controllers it depends on the game, but regardless all games work through the game pad first before they work on any other controller. This response is not only for you but for anyone else who is confuse on the two systems.
Gemmol, two things: 1. Xenoblade Chronicles is, indeed compatible with wii remote + classic controller (or classic controller pro). That's how I played it. 2. Wii games available as digital downloads on the eShop are compatible with the gamepad ONLY if they were originally compatible with the classic controller or classic controller pro. Otherwise, the gamepad will only serve as an alternate screen. For example, you csn play Mario Galaxy on Wii U, but the gamepad's buttons do nothing. You need wiimote + nunchuck for that game, period. Thankfully, Xenoblade was compatible with the classic controllers, thus making it fully compatible with the Gamepad.
I dont think you understand. He asked specifically if he can use it with the Wii U pro controller. So why would you think he wanted to download it on an orriginal wii? Come on man.
Thanks for trying to help Gemmol, but re-read my comment. MSBAUSTX gets it ;) no worries!
You don't even need those- you can play this ON THE GAMEPAD! That update allows the gamepad to work as a Wii Classic Controller Pro now. That's totally the way to play!
Unless, you know, he wants to play it on the big screen. :P
I just wish that games like Punch Out Wii could be played using Gamepad controls. If the game supports the Wiimote held sideways like the classic controller. Why can't we use the gamepad controls?
thanks. through the tv i would want to use the Pro controller over the Gamepad but good to know! so can it be viewed on the Gamepad screen then? may look better on there than enlarged in all its jankyness :D
I hope the other titles in Operation Rainstorm also become available to a wider audience
We will prob wind up getting it tomorrow (happens a lot Europe gets a game the day before Americans e-shop release day then we wind up getting it)
And a lot of games come out in EU and (especially) JPN that NoA ignores entirely.
This and Lost Odyssey (x360) ware two best jrpg games of last generation.
