Nintendo announced that Xenoblade Chronicles will finally be heading to the US Virtual Console on Wii U tomorrow. Having been released in the PAL region Virtual Console some time ago, North American fans wondered how long we would have to wait.

Xenoblade Chronicles will be up for $19.99 and will be compatible with the Wii U Gampade, the Wiimote and Nunchucks, and Classic Controller Pro.

    It’s about damn time! One of my favorite RPGs I have ever played, those that have not played it should give it a shot when it is available. It is a big game, but very satisfying.

    FINALLY, Gamestop’s reign of terror and overpriced “””used””” copies will end.

    Will it have dual audio or will it follow in the lines of the 3DS port?

    • Razorfall

      If it’s the same as the Wii version it’s dual audio. The english voices aren’t too bad though.

  • I believed that it was released for a while in the US.

    Last year there was a Cyber Monday deal on it in the European eShop (-50%).
