Xenoblade Chronicles announced for Nintendo 3DS

There was a new Nintendo Direct today, and we’ve gotten tons of news. We know that a new model 3DS is coming out and we know a bit more about Amiibo. But the people who are most excited today should be Xenoblade Chronicles fans, because not only was Shulk confirmed for Smash Bros (thus at least partially confirming the leaks from earlier this week) but a remake of the original Xenoblade has been revealed as well.

According to Nintendo, this new Xenoblade will only be playable on the recently announced newer model 3DS systems though, not on any of the ones currently available. Meaning that if you weren’t able to get it the first time around then you’ll have to buy one of these new 3DS systems if you want to play it.

What do you all think of this? I think the trailer looks pretty nice. How do you think the game will run on the new 3DS? Will you be getting it when it comes out?
