UPDATE: Nintendo of America has posted this on their Twitter, which indicates the United States will be getting some form of special edition. It doesn’t clarify whether or not the bundle we are getting is identical to the ones Europe is receiving, however. Just have to wait and see.

Xenoblade X 21

It’s been a while since I’ve been madly jealous of Europe. First it was because it looked like they were getting Xenoblade Chronicles when we weren’t (a situation that was thankfully recitified) and later cause they got Fire Emblem: Awakening several months before us. I thus had lots of time to calm down and breathe deeply, letting the fires of jealousy dim. No longer today, though. See, today European gamers found out that Xenoblade Chronicles X is coming to their shores with a couple of really sexy bundles. Which isn’t to say we won’t get the very same bundles, but the waiting game hurts my soul.

Xenoblade X Bundle

The first bundle announced is the Wii U Premium Pack. This beauty includes a black premium Wii U console, Xenoblade Chronicles X, a no doubt sexy artbook and world poster. If that’s too rich for your blood, there will also be the Limited Edition Pack, which features the physical copy of the game, something called a SteelBook cover, World map and Cover Art posters and artbook. And to further set Europe to frothing at the mouth, the original Xenoblade Chronicles is now available via the eShop, for those crazy people who didn’t pick it up when it first came out. Sounds very exciting to me. Now for Monolith Soft and Nintendo of America to announce our no doubt even more fantastic Western bundles… right?
