There was some issue convincing publishers that JRPGs would sell in NA at what is essentially the end of the Wii's lifespan. You can read about Operation Rainfall, a fan initiative credited with getting Xenoblade Chronicles released in the West.

Kinda funny, because the US preorder numbers alone are higher than what the game sold in EU and Japan. It makes me happy, as the game deserves to sell well.

This game is amazing. One of the best, if not the best, JRPGs of this generation. Epic, twisting storyline and good character development, but the real stars of the game are the action-packed combat and the grand scale of the world. 70+ hrs in, and I'm still attacking random critters just because it's fun. And I've long since lost count of the times I stand looking out from a high bluff, down at the fields and towns I've traveled through. If you're looking for an RPG with a good mix of modern and classic, and one that will eat up weeks of your gaming life, I can't recommend Xenoblade Chronicles highly enough.
