While North Americans rally in hopes for a release of three of Nintendo’s latest Japanese only titles, European’s been sitting back and relaxing simply waiting for the release date for Xenoblade Chronicles. But now, Europe gets double the JRPG fun as Nintendo of France confirmed that The Last Story is coming to Europe in 2012. Unfortunately, Xenoblade Chronicles
has been pushed back into 2012 as well. Originally it was announced as “TBA 2011.”
While many would probably be happy just with the JRPG duo, Europe may be taking it a step further. When asked about the chances of Nintendo’s Devil May Cry style Pandora’s Tower, Nintendo of France’s director of marketing, Matthew Minel, said that localization of the title looked “promising,” but wouldn’t officially confirm it.
So it looks like Wii releases will still be pretty bare around the world in 2011 until Kirby Wii, at least we know that European Nintendo fans have a lot to look forward to next year.
Update: Information regarding Xenoblade Chronicles’ delay was a mistranslation. The title is launching September 2nd in Europe.
