As much as Xenoblade Chronicles’ story is about two massive gods who battled, its publishing in real life had two massive groups struggling for supremacy. It was Nintendo versus the masses of upset Wii owners. Who won? Both, I’d say. Mark your calendars, internet, because today, April 6th, 2012, Xenoblade Chronicles has finally been released to the North American audience.
So be merry and consume. With Metacritic scores like that, it can’t be ignored, even if you have to take the whole of 10 minutes of trouble to re-hook your Wii up to the television. The game is available on Nintendo’s official site and, through an exclusive partnership, at GameStop.
