Nintendo Dates Xenoblade Chronicles Wii

Nintendo unsurprisingly made several announcements this morning as rival Sony officially released its new PS Vita handheld gaming system in North America.

The first announcement is an April 6 release date for the RPG Xenoblade Chronicles for Nintendo Wii. This game was previously not available stateside but soon will be, complete with fan-created artwork on the cover.

The following month, Nintendo will release Mario Tennis Open exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. This is the second Mario-themed game that now has a release date, with Mario Party 9 scheduled for a Wii release on March 11.

“Last” but not least, another previously available in Japan but not here RPG, The Last Story, will be coming to Nintendo Wii later this year from publisher XSeed Games.

Watch Nintendo President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime makes these announcements and share some new footage in the latest Nintendo Direct video below.
