Xenoblade Chronicles launch date revised to August 19

By Jack Taylor – 8 July 2011

Xenoblade Chronicles will launch two weeks earlier than its initial September 2 release date in Europe, it has been announced.

The game and its limited edition preorder bundle were revealed only last week to be launching on September 2 in Europe.

Now, however, Nintendo has announced that the release date for Xenoblade Chronicles will be brought forward by two weeks to August 19 - just six weeks from now.

The preorder bonus - a special bundle with a red Classic Controller Pro, three concept art posters and a reversible game cover - will still be available from GAME and Gamestation in the United Kingdom to anyone who orders the game before August 19.

Surely that's old news by now...
