Finally, here it is! Proof positive from Nintendo that Xenoblade Chronicles will be coming to the Wii in the US.

Xenoblade Chronicles asks players to use the Monado blade to take on a seemingly endless series of invading Mechon robots, playing as the main character Shulk, a weapons researcher.

The gaming environment in Xenoblade Chronicles is truly vast. Players can take time out from the main quest and venture out looking for other challenges and side quests. Hidden areas and unique monsters are scattered throughout the gameís massive world, which players should feel free to explore as much as they like.
Xenoblade Chronicles will be available on April 2 2012 exclusively through US GameStop retail locations for a suggested retail price of $49.99.
