Even though Xenoblade Chronicles was a limited release, it took the West by fire and garnered quite a mass amount of praise. From the tid-bits we got from Nintendo of America it sounds like the game was a smashing success. However, the time of praise has passed, with nearly everyone getting to play and finish the title. Nowadays you hear more about how people unable to afford the game at release have missed their chance to play. With the game being a limited release and in high demand, Xenoblade is having its prices skyrocketing with the price gauging on Amazon and eBay.
Are they out of luck? Maybe, maybe not.
It seems that Best Buy and Walmart are both listing Xenoblade for the Wii U, pre-order and everything. Though I must stress that this is most likely an error, due in part to someone not understanding the difference between Xenoblade and Monolith’s new recently revealed title for the Wii U simply called “X” at the moment. It’s possible they were unaware of “X”‘s existence, or it could be their own way of having a place holder so they wouldn’t be stuck with having a simple ‘X’ in the listing. Regardless of any speculation on my part, the listing is probably for “X.” (Seriously I wished they’d have give it a proper title, even if it’s a working title to help stop the confusion. At least Xenoblade’s original title was more than just one letter.)
So…there is a -slight- chance of it being an HD Remake for Xenoblade. Not much, but the possibility is there. Who knows, maybe they will do a reprint, release it digitally on the eShop, or maybe an HD Remake on the eShop! Just saying, it wouldn’t be such a bad idea… letting others who missed out having another chance to get their hands on it.
