New Shots of Xenoblade Look Awesome

Japanese RPG epic is a real looker

When the best teams get to work on Wii games, the machine's graphical muscle really shines through: check out Monster Hunter Tri, Endless Ocean 2, Fragile Dreams or Sin and Punishment 2. Pretty, no? Well get ready for the next Best-Looking Wii Game, Nintendo's upcoming RPG Xenoblade.

The game used to be known as Monado and appeared on Nintendo's North American release schedule late last year, but dropped off the most recent schedule put out by the company a few months back. Hopefully we'll still see the game released outside of Japan, where it's due to hit shelves in three weeks.

In the meantime, feast your eyes on the images below and cross your fingers for a Western release.
