Wait, you didn't get the Wii Play Control of Pikmin 2? .-.
Wow, NOA really doesn't like non cash cow games o-o
Microsite now open!
I personally think it's kind of unfinished and amateurish as I had to mark the text to read most of it, and some of the videos don't work really well, but it reveals the rest of the english voice actors for the main characters in case no one knows already, and they provide voice samples for both the english and japanese voice actors on the character page. (If you can find it! =P) I've posted the english voice actors below:
English Voice Actors
So is the game going to be Dual Audio?
According to a Dutch Nintendo rep, apparently, yes.

If you mean being able to choose between Japanese original and English dub then yes.
I'll be playing through the English dub during my first playthrough, then play the japanese original in the New Game Plus. Mostly because I think the english voice actors did a good job. And I didn't like the japanese voice for Riki.

Well I see Dual Audio as a safety net that doesn't take much time to implement...
Imagine Chaos Wars without Dual Audio...or if you want a scenario where a game has no Dual Audio and suffered MASSIVELY for it, look no further than Arc Rise Fantasia...perfect in every way an RPG can be, except for the less than stellar english dub...atleast in the first half of the game anyways.
It's so depressing that such a great game can fail so hard in just one area of it's gameplay, and as a result turn away such a huge disproportionate amount of potential customers.
Europeans! I demand you all to buy extra copies so the game does ultra good and convince tubby to bring that game over!

Can't say anything about Arc Rise Fantasia as it never came over to Europe.
And I've already preordered my copy of Xenoblade so...
Lucky. Any definitive release date for dat Xenoblade other than 2012? Personally, I can't wait for it, nor for The Last Story nor Pandora's Tower. It's just... HNNNGH I wanna play them! DX
If we're talking about the European release date, my preorder will be shipped at August 19th. But if we're talking about an American release, then I dunno.
Yeah, I meant European release.
I mean, I wish Reggie could be bro and help localize that here (less of a hastle than looking for European/PAL Games in them crappy game stores here that sell vidyia from different regions), but as long as it gets a release in a language I can understand... Yeah.
Apparently, No A is going to watch this game closely when it's on sale in Europe so who knows. It might get an American release after all. I wouldn't count on it, but there's still some hope left.
Hope so... =<
I mean, the Wii "dying" with Xenoblade, The Last Story, Pandora's Tower and T Lo Z: Skyward Sword would indeed be "going out with a blast".
To the mooooooooon!

Still less so than the GCN got, but OK
And Kirby: Return to Dreamland!
HNGH HOW DID I FORGOT KIRBY RETURNS TO DREAMLAND!?
This year. The games. So much want.
still less than the GCN.
It's alright. Calm down.
Personally, I'd love to see an Ultra version of Spark or Plasma Kirby, since electricity abilities and attacks are among my favorite abilities and attacks in video games.
In these dark times, we take what we get. Perhaps I can actually get through my backlog before the Wii U hits european shores.

Yeah. I know I won't get a Wii U anytime soon. Or if, at all. *Won his Wii a back in october 2010 at bingo, otherwise would had never gotten one*
So I get what I can, but I'm really interested in these three games. =o So... You said that day your Xenoblade ships... So is it, like, the release date, then?
GCN "core" releases in US: 2005 and 2006 * means exclusive
2011 and 2012 Wii core releases for US, all exclusive
Plus the following possible but VERY unlikely for 2012

Yes. It is.
And I'm fully aware of that. I just have faith.
There was also Lost in Shadow, which I believe got decent reviews, for what it's worth.

I feel somewhat embarrassed now. I don't know why I did that. >___<

So I picked up my pre-order (with a limited edition red Classic Controller Pro and a sweet box) yesterday, and have been playing about twelve hours now. what I think of it up to now:
Conclusion: An ambitious quality product, that might have benefit from more capable writers and some sheering in all the Padding. But what do I know after only 12 hours?

As having finished the Japanese one, you don't. And besides, you're going to get a lot of better gems later. Unless you have the rare Color Set◊ equipped. Can you explain what you meant by "character customisation is rather complicated" thing first?
