This week is the final week for Xenoblade on the USA VGChartz Pre-order Chart. Xenoblade Chronicles gets an additional 18,798 pre-orders from last week, bringing the final total number of pre-orders in the US to 187, 091. We do not know if these numbers include ShopNintendo or not, nor do we know what the pre-orders look like in Canada but we expect them to be high.
I would say 187k for a limited release game is quite respectable and hopefully goes a long way in proving to Nintendo that JRPGs can be profitable in the Americas. If you have not yet pre-ordered the game, it is not too late! Xenoblade releases April 5th in Canada, and April 6th in the US.
