Nintendo Europe Launches Japanese RPG Trio Contest

Look away, North America
One of the ways Nintendo of Europe marketed the superb Xenoblade Chronicles was with a series of official Let's Play videos over on YouTube. Depending on your point of view, it either went very well or very badly, as NoE now wants players to create their own Let's Play series as part of a new competition.
The videos can be up to ten minutes long and should explain exactly what you love about Monolith Soft's glorious Japanese RPG. At the end of October, five finalists will be chosen and the overall winner will be voted for by Xenoblade fans and have their video featured on the game's official YouTube channel.
That's not the best part, though. The winner will receive vouchers entitling them to free copies of much-anticipated 2012 Wii releases The Last Story and Pandora's Tower. Four runners-up will receive vouchers for one of these two games.
The contest closes on 18th October and you must be 16 or over to enter.
