No GravatarFans have literally been begging Nintendo of America to release Xenoblade Chronicles in North America since the Japanese version was released in 2010!

European gamers were blessed with an English language version in August of this year. A campaign called “Operation Rainfall” was formed to get gamers to encourage Nintendo of America to localize Xenoblade along with 2 other games: The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower. Each game is a wonderful RPG that has not seen release in North America.

The campaign seems to have paid off! Today, Nintendo announced an April 2012 release for Xenoblade Chronicles. The game will be exclusive to Gamestop and Nintendo.com at the suggested retail price of $49.99!
