Released along with the announcement of Nintendo’s new systems, the New 3DS and New 3DS XL, was news confirming that Monolith Soft’s hit Wii RPG game “Xenoblade Chronicles” will be available on the aforementioned handheld consoles. The game is intended to make use of Nintendo’s new, advanced 3D modeling. This does mean, however, that the game will be unplayable on current 3DS models.

Xenoblade Chronicles will be releasing on the New 3DS sometime next year. While there is still no confirmation of the US release, we’d find it hard to believe Nintendo would squander the opportunity to bring this beloved 2010 classic to the as many markets as possible, especially considering the fact that an already superb localization has been done.


Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
