Dammit that it's only sold at Gamestop and at the Nintendo Online Store.

Nice. Preordered this one as soon as I could, even though I'm not a big fan of Gamestop.

Is there anyway to at least get free shipping on it?

Did they just add this? I didn't see it there this morning. I preorderd the game on my lunch break today.

fuuuuuu... even in light of this I will not change my preorder from nintendo to gamestop. I don't want to ever give gamestop another penny.

Going to have to pre-order this and borrow a Wii from one of my friends since I got rid of mine.

Artbook, eh? This could be a really nice bonus... or one of those crappy 20 page deals.

In France, they gave away a translated copy of the artbook (it's an actual artbook, 200-ish pages I think). I bought one from Japan, it's a great artbook. Made me really sad that this game wasn't released on an actual HD console though.

You won't regret it, it's a fantastic game.

I have heard that from everyone and it makes me excited as an RPG player. As a JRPG fan, I owe it to myself to play this. I will admit I was quite a pessimist about this coming stateside. Just wish it was on an HD console though.

Funny... I'm not a fan of Gamestop, the Wii or JRPG's yet I'm still gonna preorder this.

I hope Nintendo also ships it with the artbook, because I've already got it pre-ordered through them and would hate to have to cancel that just to redo the pre-order with GS.

May just do this if I happen to get 50 dollars before April. Otherwise I won't get it until probably July.

So what kind of artbook are we talking about here. I might be tempted to get an American copy of the game if the artbook is decent (my Girlfriend would love the artbook).

Boy, this is quite an incentive (even though the possibility of a lesser art book is likely).

I don't know if I should bite it. The game has a lot of critical and user acclaim, and it's gonna be a limited release, which means I don't have a lot of time to waste on making a decision. I have too may RPGs on my backlog as it is, and to be honest, I've grown a little weary of the JRPG genre.

Okay let me just say I was exactly the same way. I honestly haven't loved a JRPG in years. I was skeptical at first but enough people were gushing about this game that I figured what the hell and tried it.

I loved it. It's one of the best RPGs I've played in years and certainly the best JRPG in probably a decade or more.

My backlog is nuts. Like 527 games on Steam plus a bunch not on Steam nuts. When I started this everything else got bumped down until I got through it, which I think was 130+ hours if I recall correctly.

Yes there are some flaws sure. That's to be said about anything, but overall the experience for me was unmatched. I was skeptical but it made a believer out of me.

I can't gush enough about this game. JUST GET IT :D

No offense, but compared to you, my backlog doesn't seem that bad. ;)

And yea, I've heard very similar comments from other people who felt the JRPG genre has been stagnating for a long time, but Xenoblade is the GAME-CHANGER (pardon the pun). Let me be a little clear: I've just grown a little weary on the JRPG genre. The JRPG genre hasn't really been that bad in recent times: the Digital Devil Saga games were good, and I really enjoyed Persona 4; those games were also released in recent years.

But I'm losing the point. I'm also a very unmotivated gamer, and just as easy to lose interest in a game as soon as I purchase it. Not sure if Xenoblade really does redefine the genre enough to make a hasty purchase, and not just because it's getting a limited release. If I'm gonna buy a game, I should feel compelled knowing this game will be worth my time.

Well it's up to you of course, but I was on the fence and very much glad I went for it even to the point of having to import it.

I've found lately I've been very unmotivated to play much of anything. 57 channels and nothing on and all that. But this is one of the very few games that sucked me in when I tried it and really motivated me to want to play it all the way.

And yes, I know my backlog is nuts. I need to stop reading about all the sales on this forum. :-P

Just wish it was on an HD console though.


Best we can hope for in that regard is that the backwards compatibilities of the WiiU allow for some proper upscaling! :)

And I'm pretty sure those of us who preordered through Nintendo will receive the artbook as well. I'd imagine Nintendo would not want to risk having the preorders cancelled on their end.

The artbook is probably inside the case, or shrinkwrapped to the outside.

They announced it via Facebook, so no details on what kind of artbook it is.

Hoping for the best, but expecting 20 pages 5x8 stapled folded paper.

Placed my pre-order a few weeks ago...really hoping it'll be included with my order regardless. I sent an e-mail in to Gamestop to get a confirmation, I'll post the reply when I get it.

People who pre ordered before will definetly be offered the art book while supplies last.

The cost of having to step inside a gamestop is slightly less than the cost of shipping. I guess.
