After months of clamoring from fans wanting to see it in America, Nintendo has announced that the critically-acclaimed Xenoblade Chronicles is finally arriving on our shores on April 3rd.

The game follows a Shulk, a young man who wields an energy blade called the Monado against the Mechon in order to ultimately save the world. First released in Japan in 2010 Xenoblade Chronicles has received universal acclaim from almost every part of the world. Earlier this year a campaign known as "Operation Rainfall" was created in order to gain Nintendo's attention to the localization of Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower. No word on whether the other two titles will receive a stateside release.

Xenoblade Chronicles will be released exclusively at Gamestop and on the official Nintendo website.
