Nintendo of America has confirmed that the special edition for Xenoblade Chronicles X is indeed headed to North America.
Bundle the original Xenoblade in this special edition Nintendo. The franchise needs more exposure.
IIRC, there's a deal in EU where you get a discount on X if you purchase the original on the Eshop, so there's that. It's not the same, but still a nice idea.
The only proble with the physical copy is load times. It will be better to download it, for a better experience.
I heard that it is a better experience to go digital with this game. I think it's the only example that I can think of recently where there is a difference between physical and digital performance wise (I think it was the opposite like 5 years ago where loading was faster from disc). I was torn to get physical or digital for this game; but now that there is a limited edition I think I'll go with physical.
Except that there are download files to offload the loading on the disc completely optional of course but you get the idea.
The game itself has no load times. Just a huge install at first.
I am adding a comment to my comment. Just to say if you are a collector it would be cool to have unsealed, and download the Digital copy.
i completely forgot about this game, guess i wont be getting it at launch
Super ultra hiper mega awesome cool story bro. Tell me more pls.
hopefully the preorders dont sell out too fast.. people have jobs & a life that also love games
