Xenoblade Chronicles, the best-selling and critically-acclaimed RPG for Nintendo Wii, will finally be released in the US at the beginning of April. Initially available only in Japan, the game was localized to Europe and Australia this summer and will now be coming to America exclusively through GameStop and the Nintendo site. With the release date only a few months before the Wii U is expected to come out, Xenoblade's arrival marks a welcome surprise late in the current generation's lifetime. It's also sure to please the game's substantial fanbase — at least those who haven't already hacked their consoles to play the European version.
