Xenoblade Still Listed On Nintendo’s Release Calendar


There’s been a lot of talk about Xenoblade and The Last Story in recent times, with debates and complaints around whether or not the two games will be localized. To clear this up, we look to Nintendo’s list of games for the year ahead.


Monado: Beginning of the World, which was the original title for Xenoblade, is still listed on Nintendo’s 2011 release calendar for the U.S., along with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Both games’ release periods are listed as “TBA” (to be announced).


But wait! What about The Last Story? That still isn’t listed! Does that mean it isn’t coming over?!


No, that’s not what it means at all. As we’ve said in the past, The Last Story just saw its release in Japan this past week. If Monolith Soft’s RPG is making it over, there’s little reason to suggest that Mistwalker’s shouldn’t, given the talent associated with it.
