Andriasang: There's been some buzz of late regarding domain name registrations and possible English language releases for The Last Story and Xenoblade.
Anyways, I'm positive Nintendo will announce that these 2 games will be localized at E3.
I actually think we might hear something about Xenoblade before E3. They've already announced the European release, and the Wii's schedule is totally empty. Also, Xenoblade is a low visibility title that would just get buried by bigger announcements at E3. I suspect it might be released quietly in May to give Nintendo of America a revenue and positive press going into E3. I do agree that we probably won't hear about a NA localization of The Last Story until E3 though.
If so, then my livingroom will finally be hosting a Wii XD
Both have had great reviews...Nintendo gearing up for another awesome year. Can't wait for E3! :) famitsu: The Last Story 10/10/9/9 Xenoblade 9/9/9/9
famitsu is not really a good source of unbiased reviews. i imported last story, and it's awesome, hope we get a english version...
If they get released, I'm buying a Wii....again >_>
so WHERE IS MY FATAL FAME 4
Its out dude, you can get that game english patched if you have homebrew which is really easy to install on your wii.
i dont support homebrew dude. i dont support piracy
what? since when homebrew is piracy?
Just because you soft-mod your Wii, doesn't mean you have to use piracy. The english patch only works with the retail disc.
I don't know if a domain registration is much to go on especially when someone pointed out did it over a year ago.
I hope so I got really excited abot the Last Story!.!?.)(
I really hope they do especially Xenoblade, that game looks awesome
Does anyone know why these games didn't sell too well in Japan? This is not to start an argument but I'm wondering how 2 new JRPG IP's with good Famitsu scores didn't sell. Was it lack of marketing or were the games just not receieved well?
Marketing. Nintendo isn't exactly the best marketers. They know how to advertise a new console and a new Mario game but they could really care less about any 3rd or 2nd party games, it seems. I doubt the 2 games got that much advertisement.
I think Nintendo marketed Tales of Symphonia for the Gamecube pretty well, which many attribute to the game's success. I dunno. I'm not completely sure how deep the Xeno and TLS's campaigns were, but I remember looking at a lot of commercial spots that Gametrailers.com picked up.
