For those excited about Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, particularly fans in Europe, it's been a rather fun day. Nintendo of Europe already confirmed that the handsome Xenoblade Chronicles cover plates are coming to the region, but has now also lifted the lid on a 3DS HOME Theme that'll arrive with the title.

As you can see in the concept art below it shows a rather cheerful Shulk sitting in front of the Bionis landscape.

Similar to other recent promotions this will be free to those in Europe that buy the game on the eShop in its first week on sale, but we suspect will then pop up on the Theme Shop for the standard $1.99 / €1.99 / £1.79. We've listed a North American price there - while this hasn't yet been announced for NA, we expect it'll arrive in the region when the title lands on 10th April; it arrives one week earlier on 2nd April in Europe.

In addition, UK New Nintendo 3DS owners have some options on the Official Nintendo UK Store that include the theme as a freebie with physical copies of the game, while there are bundles including the cover plates and also options with the white and black New Nintendo 3DS.

Will you be grabbing this theme along with the game in early April? Let us know.
