Not only that, but two games from Operation Rainfall’s bucket list - Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story - are coming to America within the next couple of months.
Each of these games is already out in the wild in Europe, so Nintendo Europe’s put together a trailer showcasing all of them in order to spread the news that Wii’s definitely got the ball in its court in terms of compelling RPG experiences. Check it out below:
