Nintendo Europe has announced that the Wii RPG Xenoblade is heading to Europe and will go under the new moniker of Xenoblade Chronicles.

The game is developed by Monolith Soft, developer of the highly regarded Xenosaga series, as well as the earlier Xenogears.

The combat system is of the action driven variety and equipment will not only have an effect on your stats but will also have a visual bearing on your characters too. Quite uncommon for a JRPG.

It looks stunning for a Wii game and features large environments to explore and there’s even a day and night cycle included.

The story covers a war between two nations and sees you attempting to stop a mechanical army, as well as your quest to find out more about a mythical sword.

As far as a release date goes, all that’s known is that it will be released some time this year.
