Red Sun Gamer Episode 3 – The Very Beginning Of Xenoblade Chronicles

By Red Sun Gamer . July 9, 2011 . 2:34pm

The announcement that Xenoblade Chronicles will be released across Europe this August roused Steve and Martin’s dormant appetite for another helping of Xenoblade gameplay! They first played the game in Japan after its domestic release on June 10, 2010 but this time, they are here to show you the first 49 minutes of unedited gameplay. Those who prefer that “going in fresh” feeling fret not, as the entire quick look takes place on the leg calve of Kyoshin, one of the two Gods. You’ll still have free reign to explore the rest of the anatomy of Kyoshin and Kishin on your own!


Tune in to see their gameplay accompanied with partial translations, running commentary and an explanation of Tetusya Takahashi’s unique battle system. You have the right to know what you may be missing out on! 


This game was played using the Classic Controller Pro.

    Aaaaahhhhh! Can’t watch this! I want too! But I can’t! Don’t wanna spoil anything since the game is almost upon us!

    Good thing my Wii is modded…

  • Suicunesol

    …ahem. Well, if it were me I’d have kept the thigh highs on…

    People keep acting like NoA gave us a straight no about it, but why?
    “No plans at this time.”

    • Locklear93

      There certainly are exceptions, but more often than not, regardless of the company, “No plans at this time,” results in a game not happening.  It’s not particularly unreasonable to treat it that way, as long as they’re not flat out saying, “Nintendo said never,” I think. If nothing else, it keeps expectations realistic.

      • except never is  exactly how people are taking it  and honestly its starting to become pathetic and annoying 

    • androvsky

      NoA said “No plans at this time” after the localization was announced, completed, tested, and ready to ship to a different territory.  It was also after a very major fan campaign launched after a European Nintendo rep said NoA wasn’t releasing Xenoblade.

      We’re long, long past the typical time frame to announce an intent to publish; it’s not at all the same thing with Atlus and Catherine.  I’m sure NoA wanted to leave a little bit of uncertainty to cut down on the hate, and just in case NCL forces them (which they probably won’t, as weak as the dollar is now).

    Bleh. It’s in Japanese.

    • Ren

      No. Of course it’s in english since the european version already launched /not.

      But yeah, smartass comments aside(sorry for that :D), I don’t really know why you expected it to be in english.

  • Ren

    The funny thing is that you already heard all but one track Shimomura composed for this game in this video. She only made 8 of the 91 tracks of this game. And hers aren’t even the best ones.

    And I thought I was bad when I started to play it.

  • UberNoCrono

    I just wanted to say I havent seen too many videos like that (translating while playing) and I enjoyed it alot *thumbs up*
    You guys think you might do more videos like this?
    The Last Story would be awesome to see

  • buying a freeloader for this. can’t afford Wii PAL.

  • Mister_Nep

    Kinda disappointing your second recorded game for Siliconera is something so import unfriendly.

    • Xenoblade is coming to PAL territories where it’s completely localized in English. I’d say that’s pretty import friendly.

  • PrinceHeir

    not gonna watch this though :P
