A remake of Xenoblade Chronicles has been announced exclusively for the new 3DS and 3DS XL.
The beloved sci-fi RPG, which was previously only available on the Wii, will be coming to the new models of the 3DS along with improved graphics. Unfortunately, as it will make use of the new 3DS’s analog stick, it will not be playable with current models of the handheld consoles.
The game will be coming to Japan in 2015, with no word yet on a Western release. It’s all not been revealed whether this will be the first in a long line of games that will only be compatible with the new 3DS models, though that presumably depends upon the success of the new hardware.
