Kotaku's Luke Plunkett writes, "Not that this will be too big a surprise for suffering American Wii owners, but in Nintendo's latest release schedule (out today), there's still no mention of Xenoblade Chronicles being due for North America."
Sadness... but I'm still hoping >.<
This doesn't make me sympathize with nintendo's current crisis. Give me this game in America!
its over. Just import it from Zavvi, £29.85 and free international shipping.
Can't. Need to mod my Wii but i can't because my firmware is at 4.3 and mods only works at 4.2 or lower. And since this is a new game, my system would need to be updated so nope. Fuck you Nintendo of America and Nintendo in general for taking the most stupid fucking decisions of this entire gen, and probably the next.
http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Ind... works on Wii 4.3, then block the update through GeckOS. Yes we have to jump through hoops, thank NoA for that.
Seriously people, just import, pirate or do whatever you want that float your boat, because at this point, it's looking very very very grim.
How about I just don't buy the fucking game at all?
Because that would amount to taking out your frustration on Monolith Soft (the developer), when they have nothing to do with this. This is Nintendo dropping the ball.
I want to play this game so badly I'm actually think of getting a EU Wii, but I honestly don't want to reward Nintendo for making me work harder for their inability to offer games that I want to play. Really starting to feel like they're heads have been up a rude place since the N64.
get a eu wii you'll be able to play alot of good games that us never got
And again, I'm not really of a mind to indirectly reward Nintendo by giving them my money when I have to work harder to give it to them. Especially when they might turn right around and then release it in the Sates. I went through enough of that crap in the in the SNES days and it only seems like they've slid right back into that Lets Not Import Good Games mentality.
true true. I don't even like nintendo myself no more starting to hate them as much as i hate microsoft
getting a Pal Wii doesnt solve anything, they will still play in 50hz, what you need is the Homebrew Channel, and GeckOS. Invest in a sd card and import Xenoblade. Your done.
How do they expect us to believe that they're going to cater to the hardcore with the WiiU if they aren't too concerned with releasing games that a lot of people are clearly interested in for a system that hasn't had a lot of high profile games? So far all I see in the WiiU is the same things the PS3/360 already has, but the PS3/360 doesn't have Xenoblade, The Last Story, or Pandora's Tower. NoA may be listening, but they aren't really hearing what people are saying.
Lol. Blame yourselves for Nintendo not bothering to localize these games. They just don't see the game selling well over in America, and I'm pretty sure it won't. However many supporters Operation Rainfall has, I bet less than half of the people will go out there and purchase these game brand new, in the case it did get localized. Notice the sales of the other Wii JRPGS to make it to America, then come back and tell me if Nintendo is wrong for just not bothering anymore. While I'm also disappointed, I fully understand why Nintendo is doing this. Lol I'll just pirate the UK version of the games anyway.
The reason the ones presently on the Wii didn't sell well is because they aren't good (Rune Factory and Little King Story withholding), with a little bit of poor advertising sprinkled on top.
"Lol. Blame yourselves for Nintendo not bothering to localize these games. They just don't see the game selling well over in America" Xenoblade is already translated and is releasing in Europe, and Australia. Bringing it to NA would not bankrupt the company.
True True. But still bad business maybe? Profits are all they care about at the end of the day. To me honestly, I think The Last Story is worth the risk atleast. It looks the best by far compared to the other two, and I think with a great marketing strategy it can sell just about enough to make localizing it worth it. It even has online.......In addition to the new innovative gameplay elements plus the great visuals. It's a complete package. I WANT!
If they had opted to bring Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower, I'd have bought a Wii. As it stands, the only thing on it I really want to play is Fragile Dreams, and the Wii still isn't at a price to justify buying for ONE game.
