Xenoblade Chronicles X blasting into North America On Dec 4

Following a quick trailer showing off a lot of fine spaceship flying in action, Nintendo finally revealed the North American release date for Xenoblade Chronicles X: Dec 4 2015, just in time for it to land in Christmas lists everywhere.

While there was nothing specifically new shown off in the trailer - lots of spaceships and someone running vigorously across a field, mostly - it was still a nice touchpoint for American fans, who watched the game release in Japan this last April with no western launch date in sight. Now Xenoblade fans have something to look forward to this holiday season.

Sadly there's still no definitive release date for the PAL version, so European fans might have to wait a little longer, though there's still the potential for a close or simultaneous release. Fingers crossed!
