Game Profile

An almighty crash heralded the sudden arrival of the Bionis and the Mechonis to this world, for the two titans were locked in a timeless battle...

The sound of their clashing blades rang out, shaking the sea bed and sending ripples through the air.

As the duel reached its climax, the titans poured their remaining strength into one last slash of their great swords. Both struck forth with immeasurable power...

Once the dust had settled, only their corpses remained.

Inside information

I hope this game comes to NA. Ive been waiting a long time for an RPG like this on the Wii.



Sage_Joch said:

This is my single most anticipated wii-game, I really hope it gets localized to Europe!!



Dead-frozen said:

Looks pretty cool, weapons and gameplay look similar to Monster Hunter 3. will there be a multiplayer aspect?



Neko_Ichigofan said:

Wow I sure hope JRPGs like this one make it Stateside :')
Arc Rise Fantasia is the only great JRPG released here in the states IMO Tales of Symphonia Dawn of the New World was the worst Tales game released so far.
it was not bad just not a A-AAA RPG



Sir_Deadly said:

This looks awesome, but if The Last Story comes out before this (IF it comes to NA) then this one will have to wait.



Infernapeking said:

I will get this game, The Last Story, and Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword for my last Wii games.



Jusbe said:

@4 no xenoblade dosen't have multiplay such mh3 or last story haves. And what it comes to gameplay it haves friendship / morale system that affects fighting. A good game overall. + who wouldn't love a rpg where changing the armor affects characters outfit on cutscenes & while roaming the world.



Zach said:

@Outlawrules4life I'm not sure what region of Wii you have, but it'll have to be able to play PAL games. You can import it here or a number of other UK/Euro retailers, or, soon, Australian/NZ retailers, but you can't download it.



DeathCode said:

This game has such amazing story in it and gameplay. I am 4 hours and 30 mins at the moment since I just started and its one of the best RPG games I have ever played in my lifetime.



SkywardLink98 said:

Wow, 4+ great (J)RPGs on one system! Monster Hunter, Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower!



James said:

I just started this. It's pretty awesome — the graphics are some of the best I've seen on Wii. So sharp! Such beautiful design! Why did nobody tell me earlier how good it is?



Slapshot said:

Instead of blaming GameStop for taking advantage of a demand issue, why not point the finger at Nintendo? It published the dang game and didn't print enough copies of it to meet demands - Nintendo created this issue, not GameStop!
