xenoblade x target

Monolith Soft’s Xenoblade Chronicles X, which is the Wii U exclusive sequel to their wildly successful Wii game Xenoblade Chronicles, launches in Japan this April, and even though Nintendo has confirmed that the debacle of Xenoblade’s protracted localization won’t be repeated, and that the game is already being fast tracked for a western release, there are still naturally some fears and worries that that might not be the case, given some precedence.

It appears they may be unfounded- though leaks of this nature should always be taken with a pinch of salt and a healthy dose of skepticism, it appears that Target may have mistakenly leaked the release date for Xenoblade Chronicles X in North America- it seems to be May 31, 2015.

The release date seems highly likely for chiefly two reasons- a), it is a month and a half (roughly speaking) from the Japanese release date, which sounds reasonable enough, and b) Nintendo likes May releases- they already released Mario Kart 8 in late May last year to great success, so it is not unreasonable for them to want to follow through on that success.

Whatever the release date is, hopefully it is sooner rather than later. We will keep you posted.

    It can’t be May 31 because that’s a Sunday 😀 but May 29 would be good because it is around this date and a Friday.

      They’ve released games on Sunday before, Skyward Sword comes to mind.

    Nintendo typically always releases games on Sunday, that said, Target didn’t leak a release date for this game. Retailers make up dates all of the time. Don’t read anything into this, it’s not news. I would be surprised if we got Xenoblade Chronicles X in America this year. Nintendo said the game would be out in 2015, but they didn’t say that would be worldwide. All of their marketing has been focused entirely on Japan.

    The thing about this is that Splatoon comes in May. Who knows, Splatoon might be like May 1st or 8th, and then XCX comes at the end of the month? That’d be pretty awesome.

    I placed my ‘pre-order’ for a copy at Target about a month ago (mid-April). When you pre-order a game at Target, you basically get a $5 ‘gift card’ that you hold onto and redeem when you pick up your game. The date on the card for the release is “5/31/2015”.
