Japan gets getting those awesome exclusives, this time it’s in the form of a faceplate for the Nintendo New 3DS. The faceplate is a Xenoblade Chronicles themed edition and it looks absolutely stunning.
Looks completely amazing, right? No word if this faceplate will make it to the West but it’s definitely worthy of an import!
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. So it’s with bated breath that many a fan is eagerly anticipating the release of Xenoblade Chronicles X on the Wii U. Recently the artwork for the Japanese cover released and it looks amazing!
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.
Recently announced and shown off at E3 in Los Angeles, the Wii U will be adding an awesome and exciting new RPG to its lineup of great games.
The game with a working title, X, is from MonolithSoft, also known for making the sublime Wii RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles. The game is listed as being a Wii U exclusive for now and let’s hope it stays that way. Great trailer below with mech action, check it for yourself.
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.
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.
I mentioned via Twitter the other day that I was working on something TGS related that I would hopefully be able to reveal in the next few days. Well that time is now so I can reveal that Japandaman Dailies has managed to score not one but two interviews while at TGS with a couple of major players in the music world, both video game and anime world.
Hiroaki Yura, the recently announced new Music Supervisor of upcoming Soul Calibur V and Hiroki Kikuta, composer and video game designer of some undeniable influential games ranging from Secret of Mana through to Seiken Densetsu 3, Soukaigi and Koudelka.
Hiroaki is also the Director of the Eminence Symphony Orchestra responsible for some classically beautiful scores such as The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya and the more recent Wii release, Xenoblade Chronicles.
Japandaman Dailies’ Senior Art Editor, Stephanie, will be in attendance covering all four days and will be interviewing in an exclusive one on two interview which promises to be a highlight. Stay tuned to Japandaman Dailies for all your Tokyo Game Show updates!
