It wasn’t that long ago that the idea of seeing Xenoblade Chronicles released in the West was just a dream. Imagine going back in time and telling your former selves that not only will it be released, but there will be a remake and a sequel in just a few short years. It would’ve been hard to believe back then. With Xenoblade Chronicles 3D releasing in North America this week (and in Europe last week) as well as Japan gearing up for the release of Xenoblade Chronicles X later this month with a final live stream the other day, the focus of this week’s Retro Wrap-Up is fairly obvious.
So, come and celebrate a game that is certainly special to us as the oprainfall Retro Commercial Research Team–in other words, me–goes overseas to present some Japanese and UK television ads for both versions of Xenoblade Chronicles.
You’ll have to open this last one in YouTube to view it. It’s totally worth it, though.
Here’s a rundown of what’s been going on this week.
