Report – US release of Xenoblade Chronicles not looking good

Mathieu Minel, marketing manager of Nintendo France, has told a French television program that it’s unlikely Xenoblade Chronicles will see a release in the US.

Speaking during an appearance on Nolife, a television station for “geeks, nerds, and otakus,” in France, Minel said Nintendo of Europe wanted to show off the game during E3, but NOA didn’t want to show products it wouldn’t be selling.

We’ll send a mail on this, to be sure. So don’t start crying just yet. We are holding our tears back with all the fortitude we can muster at the moment.

Xenoblade Chronicles is to be released in Europe during September, and will come with a special Classic Controller for Wii.
