    Xenoblade Coming to Europe Sooner than Expected

    Xenoblade Chronicles may be a torrential storm of disappointment for some parts of the world, but there are nothing but sunny skies in Europe. So sunny, in fact, that Nintendo of Europe has moved up its plans a bit.

    Can't you guys in the US just import it and use the Homebrew Channel to play it? The reason I ask is because region-free hacks/chips of consoles are completely legal in Australia - there was like an Aus high court ruling that determined that region-locking is anti-competitive or something.

    I don't know how legal it is in the United States, although I can't see anyone really giving a crap as long as you aren't pirating the games (But I dunno, I'm not in the US). I modded my Wii so I can play Japanese and European imports, it was really simple.

    It's bizarre to me that Nintendo is consistently skipping over quality titles (Xenoblade, Last Story, Fatal Frame IV) in NA, what is going on?

    Oh well. I can careless if it comes to North America or not. If I can read it, I'll play it somehow. I'm sure we've all even played games that we couldn't read :P

    Fortunately, there's a small island nation in Europe that speaks a language rather similar to American. If you import this game from Europe and run it via the Homebrew channel, you should be able to puzzle out most of the language.

    Similar? That's a joke, right?

    It's quite similar. (if one avoids the South)

    Yeah, I'm not too worked up about this. I'll be playing Xenoblade. I'd like it to get a NA release, it seems senseless for it not to, but I'll be importing no doubt about it.

    Yay for us Europeans! Hey, just because I live in Australia, doesn't mean I don't enjoy the sweet sweet PAL juice of this RPG game.

    The problem with HM/RF games for me, is the opposite of my issues in real life.

    Oh gosh. How clever... I guess what I said wasn't clear enough. Simply put, I've seen more of a stink about this game not coming to North America than almost any game in recent memory. It'll be in English. Who gives a damn where it's sold?

    Naw, they're too weird. They spell tire with a Y and sprinkle extra "u"s all over the place.

    I've stopped worrying about Operation Rainfall (to whatever minor extent I ever did in the first place)

    I had always intended to import it in the case that it didn't see a US release, so it was never a huge concern for me either way. I'll be paying a bit more to import it, but I'll survive

    At this point I just hope that others do the same and contribute to it doing well enough in Europe that NoA feels stupid in hindsight

    People who are on a budget? It's not going to stop me personally, but the exchange rate + overseas shipping makes buying a game from Europe considerably more expensive than buying it locally, and a lot of people aren't willing to shell out that much extra.

    Indeed. It does suck, but nevertheless there will be access to the game. It may be a good idea to just accept that.
