Xenoblade Chronicles X Gets a Wii U Bundle in Japan

Xenoblade Chronicles X Wii U Review

Xenoblade Chronicles X has been a long time coming. While it’s nowhere near a western launch until later in 2015, its Japanese launch is fast approaching for April 29th. As such, a live-stream was just broadcast, unveiling a wealth of information for the open world RPG, including information on a new console bundle.

Inside this upcoming bundle, Japanese players can pay 35,000 yen for everything you see here, including a 32 gig Wii U console and a copy of Xenoblade Chronicles X. In addition, there’s a 1,000 yen eShop card with special Xenoblade artwork, a special card, and an art book.

In addition, Japanese players will be able to pre-load the game starting today. When the time comes, the Wii U will need a whopping 22.7 gigs to download the adventure. This will necessitate an external HDD, as it all but eliminates space on your bog standard Wii U.

Through the game’s eShop page, we also learned that the game runs in 720p, supports Off-TV Play, the Wii U GamePad, and the Pro Controller. Because of the game’s online nature, 32 players can connect passively while up to 4 can join quests.

As for the price for this RPG, that Wii U bundle looks much more attractive once you see that Xenoblade Chronicles X retails for 8316 yen on its own, much higher than any other Wii U game. The price is presumably set to help Monolith Soft recoup their budget costs after many years of development (the game was revealed publicly as X in January 2013).

If you missed it, here’s the archived live stream aimed at Japanese players where many more details for the game were revealed, including new footage and more on the overworld (it’s huge). Let us know how excited you are for Xenoblade Chronicles X in the comments.
