Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii was an astounding JRPG full of action, amazing scenes, stunning music and heart pounding action. It’s all these reasons plus more that make it highly coveted and expensive to pick up these days.

The game is being touted by many as the spiritual successor to the Wii title so it makes the Japanese launch date of April 29th all so far away.

Xenoblade Developers Have Plans For TGS

Monolith Soft, who developed Xenoblade Chronicles for the Nintendo Wii, have taken to Twitter to advise fans to keep a close eye on the proceedings at Tokyo Game Show as they have announced that they have something in store.

There have been talks of Monolith working on a title for the Wii U so talk is rife that they will be using TGS as a platform to announce this mysterious title, Japandaman will keep you posted.

Xenoblade Chronicles Shows Off Artbook

Hard to believe that the poor North Americans are waiting for a game as sublime as Xenoblade Chronicles to be released for the Wii, when pretty much everyone else has it, including Australia for a change.

However what will make the wait for release next week that bit more sweeter is the news that people reserving their copy through GameStop will be inline to receive the awesome art book as seen below. You can see the front cover of the book just below this paragraph.

The book comes with twenty glorious pages of very cool artwork as seen in the game complete with glossy, (read: expensive) paper.

Exactly how an art book/coffee table book should be.
