Xenoblade Chronicles to launch in Europe this year

By Jack Taylor – 31 March 2011

Nintendo of Europe has confirmed that the long-awaited Xenoblade title for Wii, which launched in Japan in June 2010, will come to Europe this year.

It's the announcement fans of Japanese RPG have been waiting for since the game's initial announcement at E3 2009: Xenoblade Chronicles will launch across Europe later this year.

The game, known simply as Xenoblade in Japan, has been on the radars of many Nintendo fans since it was shown for the first time at E3 2009, where it was introduced as Monado: Beginning of the World.

No launch plans for North America have yet been confirmed, but at this stage, it looks far likelier the game will have launched around the world by the end of the year.

Surely that's old news by now...
