The release schedule of the U.S. retailer lists a "Xenoblade Chronicles GS Exclusive" for release on April 3, 2012.

New York GameStops open up in a bit. We'll call in and see if they can confirm this is in their system.

It’s man vs. machine in a new game coming to Nintendo’s Wii™ console in spring. Xenoblade Chronicles™ asks players to use the Monado blade to take on a seemingly endless series of invading Mechon robots in a sweeping role-playing adventure.

The main character is Shulk, a weapons researcher who must confront the Mechon by wielding the ancient Monado blade. It’s the only weapon that has any effect against the Mechon, and it also enables Shulk to see the future.

Players can customize their characters with a variety of weapons and armor choices, as well as headgear, boots and gloves. As in many role-playing games, players can then gain experience and upgrade their characters. Players can watch their enemies, learn their tactics and unleash real-time counterattacks.

The vast open world of Xenoblade Chronicles is ripe for exploration. Players can avert their focus from the main story and venture out looking for other challenges and side quests. Hidden areas and unique monsters are scattered throughout the game’s massive world, which players can explore freely.

Xenoblade Chronicles has already launched in Japan and Europe, and has received unanimously positive reviews, including several perfect scores.

Xenoblade Chronicles will be available exclusively through U.S. GameStop retail locations, http://www.gamestop.com and http://www.nintendo.com at a suggested retail price of $49.99 in the United States. Additional information about the game will be announced in the future. For more information, visit http://xenobladechronicles.nintendo.com.

I am not, unless this has some unique nitpick, or bonus i wont be bothered to get a copy, since PAL version has NTSC compatibility.

No, it only has the name "xeno" as a tribute to Tetsuya Takahashi the original name was Monado: Beginning of the World

Sounds interesting. Might watch a video and see if it's worthy enough for me.

'Alright...waste a money if ya ask me'*hands me game* Then announces they made their 20th sale on MKWii, even though this was one month after RD. -_-

More money I'll probably end up spending. >~< Definitely glad that they decided to import it to America. Sounds like an awesome game and from the sound of those who've had it, it lives up to its title.

Supposedly you can order it directly from Nintendo's website starting the 19th.
