Xenoblade Chronicles comes to Australia on Sept. 1

Nintendo's latest Japanese RPG is set for release in early September.

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.

They're probably holding out on a US release to increase the hype (as if it weren't high enough)

Good, now if all country has xenoblade, pandora's tower and last story, so why US is getting screwed over by NoA (3 rpg games one made by guy who create xenosaga and xenogears, other made by FF creator and 3rd by new guy which it's new original game all together)

I'm glad this game is starting to leave Japan, but a confirmation of a U.S. release would still be nice... And like someone else said, Pandora's Tower and The Last Story making it stateside would be pretty nice as well.

so ninty screws a 26 year supporter/fan out of 80$ w/ a 4.5 month price cut on the 3ds (i don't want old games on a new system. i played those games ON THOSE SYSTEMS). they could've said 2 free ninty published 3ds games, or 20 free titles OF MY CHOICE on eshop, but NO! now they continue to spit in the face of us that have been BEGGING for a US release for xenoblade, last story & pandora tomorrow by releasing in EVERY OTHER TERRITORY that speaks english. we will take it AS IS, but they are forcing people to do things to make sure they play this game. don't want my money (the rest of it, lol, after the 3ds hijack)? ninty's 'bout to lose many lifelong supporters who won't even buy their games when it becomes a 3rd party publisher like Sega.

This is a breath of fresh air for us, aussie gamers as we always get games on Nintendo systems later than the US for no particular reason.
