NOA Will Be Watching European Xenoblade Chronicles Sales Closely

Nintendo doesn't want to miss out, does it?
For months, fans have been vocal about their desire for Japanese RPGs The Last Story, Xenoblade Chronicles and Pandora's Tower to make it to various western territories. Speaking to IGN, Nintendo of America's president Reggie Fils-Aime reiterated Nintendo's stance on these specific titles, but also made it clear that Nintendo is keeping an eye on things:
We will be watching very closely what happens in Europe... Certainly if there are business opportunities and positive consumer uptake from some of those titles, that will be great data for us to consider as we look at what to do with these titles.
Although out of the three aforementioned titles Xenoblade Chronicles is the only one that has been officially confirmed for a European release, circumstantial evidence also suggests that Pandora's Tower might also make it to Europe. The Last Story is also rumoured to be getting a European localisation.
