So, you missed out on a copy of Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii and you don’t want to buy a New 3DS to play that version. You are no longer doomed to a life of not “really feeling it,” provided you have a Wii U.

In fact, if you have $19.99 and a Wii U you can play the game starting tomorrow, April 28. You don’t need the Wii Remote and Nunchuck either. 

The Wii U version will also support the GamePad and Classic Controller Pro. For more on Xenoblade Chronicles, check out our review of the 3D re-release to learn more about this enormous, MMO-styled RPG.

Our Take
The markup on used copies of this game has been a barrier for many. With the digital release, those who aren’t in it for collecting and just want to play have an affordable and convenient path to that now.
