    Now NA gamers can officially buy the finest Japanese RPG game for years! So now some can stop complaining about a game that most was going to pirate anyway.

    I hope it's the bundle with a red Classic Controller Pro and not just the game.

    Just heard about this from Gameinformer. Just when I thought the Wii was going to die after Skyward Sword. This is pretty awesome. Can't wait.

    Clearly you've forgotten Dragon Quest X. I will say I'm looking forward more to Xenoblade Chronicles though.

    Well NoE are still releasing The Last Story, Pandora's Tower plus they did say that there will be some other games they've yet to have announced. That and another DQ game though some would probably grab the Wii U version instead.

    There was a survival horror game that looked great but so far its only got a Japanese release date.

    I hear it's a Gamestop exclusive? If it means they're only selling it at gamestop, then that would be a huge middle finger to all the people that pre-ordered it on Amazon to support Operation Rainfall.

    At least, Gamestop is "doing the right thing"' right?

    Tried the EU version and it was a snorefest. I don't think I'll be bothered with the US version.

    And it's only a "limited edition" release because JRPGs aren't exactly big sellers over here unless they're with a huge series (Final Fantasy, for example). A limited release ensures that people who want it can get it without NoA risking too much.

    They should had done this during the Euro release. Most people who wants to play this game already pirated it.

    Way to come in late on this NOA, this game was the reason I softmodded my wii. Watch, the US version will be better now and make me want to start over.

    Well I never really bothered with the EU version. I'll pick this up and hopefully I'll be motivated to finish it.

    Wait wait wait... So the game doesn't get a US release and people complain. Understandable I guess. But when it does get announced, people complain anyway?

    Well fuck me sideways.

    I saw it on Nintendo's Facebook.

    Every post they make (Even if unrelated to Xenoblade) people would spam them with messages saying, "BRING US XENOBLADE." Then when Nintendo finally did it, the responses weren't as positive as they should have been.

    It really seems people only wanted the game because they couldn't have it. Whatever. It will boost sales.

    I have no interest in the game.

    From what I've played the game's pretty good. There was nothing from the ten hours or so I played to make me think "best RPG this gen!!!" But considering the Wii has jackshit in JRPGs and this generation of home consoles have a relatively small library of JRPGs, it might be worth picking this up to show Nintendo, you want these type of games.

    I don't see anyone complaining.....the closest thing I see is people pointing out that they don't really care as much because they already played the PAL version since they assumed they weren't going to see a US release. That's not really the same as complaining.

    Love how people are still complaining about things related to this over on Nintendo's Facebook page. Ungrateful little fucks. You beg, spam, and petition for a generic JRPG to be released in the US, and now that it is, you still complain? What the fuck, man.

    EDIT: By complaining I mean "Where's The Last Story?" "Where's Pandora's Tower" "Wow, took fucking long enough -_-" and other shit like that.
