Xenoblade hits Wii U Virtual Console today


It's finally cheap!

Xenoblade Chronicles is launching on the Wii U Virtual Console in North America today.

The role-playing game, which completed a world tour in 2012 after its Japanese debut in 2010, will cost just $20 on the eShop -- which is a hell of a lot less than you'll find it almost anywhere else.

In comparison, the highwaymen at GameStop are charging $65 for second-hand copies, while the portable version, one of the few New Nintendo 3DS exclusives, is still going for around $40.
