Nintendo doesn't have the best track record when it comes to releasing games in Australia alongside the rest of the world, but it's getting better. The latest role-playing game from the House of Mario--Xenoblade Chronicles--only has a 12-day window between its European and Aussie release.
For the day-one adopters of Xenoblade Chronicles on September 1st, punters will be treated to a limited edition soundtrack that contains 12 songs from the game. As for the price, Nintendo Australia is also sticking to a A$99.95 RRP for this one.
Xenoblade Chronicles is a new IP from Monolith Soft and has performed well both critically and in terms of sales in its native country of Japan. Set on a distant planet, the game takes place after a war that has left lifeless titan corpses to blend into the landscape. As an army of robots fight the humans for control of the planet, you play as a human resistance fighter who is trying to repel the invasion and discover what secrets have been left behind.
