Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, a port of the Wii RPG, has a release date. A new trailer shows off more of the handheld version, giving us an idea of what to expect on April 10.

This is the first title that is exclusively for Nintendo’s New 3DS handheld. While other games, like Codename S.T.E.A.M. will have added features (namely NFC support for Amiibo figures), right now this update to the 2012 title is the only announce gamed playable exclusively on the new handhelds.

For those that haven’t played the Wii version, this provides a good alternative to spending $75 or more used or from a secondary seller. It’s also not a bad time to give it a try before Xenoblade Chronicles X arrives, as Nintendo says it’s still on track for release in North America in 2015.
