GameXplain: "Operation Rainfall seemed like a pipedream when it was first announced. Gamers have attempted campaigns like it countless times in the past and the majority of them have failed outright. Whenever one did succeed, it rarely posted the sales that the publishers hoped to see. People are willing to verbally support a cause, but it seemed like few were willing to spend money on it. Worse was that the campaign was appealing to Nintendo, one of the most stubborn developers in existence. Ever since its release in 2006, fans have been begging Nintendo for an American release of Mother 3, but it looks like it'll never happen outside a fan translated rom. I fully expected the same to happen to the Operation Rainfall games: The Last Story, Pandora’s Tower, and Xenoblade Chronicles."
