Xenoblade Chronicles hitting North American, European shores on New 3DS in April

If you didn't play Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii, you missed out on one of the most unique JRPG experiences of the last generation - and you were far from alone. Luckily, Nintendo is making it all better, confirming an April release for Xenoblade Chronicles exclusively for the New Nintendo 3DS XL (as well as the smaller New Nintendo 3DS in Europe *sob*).

The massive adventure has been shrunk down to fit on Nintendo's new flagship handheld, remade with brand-new 3D visuals. Xenoblade Chronicles will also take advantage of the dual-screen system by offering map and character data on the bottom screen, as well as allowing direct camera control by using the C-stick nubbin.

Not much else is known about the anticipated re-release, but as soon as we find out more, we'll be the first to let you know.
