Has anyone played it? I've been wanting it for soooo long but it's sooooo expensive! Can anyone tell me why it's so expensive? Is it good?

 

Also, The Last Story is pretty expensive too. I'm sure there's another I'm thinking of but I can't remember the name - is there any other Wii game that's expensive like that? <3

I have played it and yes it is very good. If I had to describe it I would say it's kind of a cross between Final Fantasy and Dragon Age (this is not a very good description but it's the best I can give. 

It's probably the last truly Great JRPG before Bravely Default came out - and the fact that the voice actors are all British (or at least doing a good impression) gives it an oddd quirkyness among the genre. 

It was released pretty much at the end of the Wii's life cycle so only got a limited run so it's kind of rare (a bit like MGS Twin Snakes, Paper Mario Thousand Year Door and Metroid Prime Trilogy.)

I would not be surprised if they did a rerelease or HD update close to the release of Xenoblade 2 as many people will have been drawn in by Shulk appearing Smash Bros.

Its a really good game one that more people should play if they like JRPG'S. Xenoblade, The Last Story and Pandora's Tower are pricey because they're highly sought after, these three games became known through Operation Rainfall. They're a bit hard to find here in America and retail stores that have it charge a lot for them. Except for The Last Story which I've seen new for $30.

There will be a second? I didn't even know!

 

I'm guessing it will be on Wii U though, I don't have one yet. 

 

I'm going to try and get the game then! <3

It is easily my favorite game on the Wii. It was probably my favorite RPG of the last console generation.

i actually found it at entertainment exchange (CEX) for around £40 the only one there so i got really lucky, yeah i feel getting it online might not be be best way since you pay nearly double for it. I think it depends on the version since there is just the solus version with the game and there was a bundle where you got the game and a red classic controller.

I think it's in the same situation with pandora's tower and the last story since i can't find them anywhere and online they go for ridiculous prices, thankfully from the nintendo direct it seems we might get pandora's tower via wii digital download.
