Xenoblade Chronicles Coming To Wii This Spring

By Joan Bennett

Xenoblade Chronicles has already launched in Japan and Europe. In the United States, Xenoblade Chronicles will be available via GameStop and online. The game has a $49.99 price tag.

Xenoblade Chronicles asks players to use the Monado blade to take on a series of invading Mechon robots in a role-playing adventure. The main character is Shulk, a weapons researcher who must confront the Mechon by wielding the Monado blade. It’s the only weapon that has any effect against the Mechon, and it also enables Shulk to see the future.

Players can customize their characters with a variety of weapons and armor choices, as well as headgear, boots and gloves. Players can then gain experience and upgrade their characters. Players can also watch their enemies, learn their tactics and unleash real-time counterattacks.

Players can avert their focus from the main story and venture out looking for other challenges and side quests. Hidden areas and unique monsters are scattered throughout the game’s massive world.
