The Song Remains The Same With Operation Rainfall

If there's one thing that the Mother 3 debacle should have taught the video gaming community, it's that trying to convince Nintendo of America to localize exceptionally Japanese titles for a North American release doesn't end so well. Now, five years after EarthBound fans felt the sting of disappointment, would-be fans of three Japanese Wii RPG titles — Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower — are trying to convince Nintendo's American arm into releasing those games here in the US of A. The fans organized a letter-writing and pre-ordering campaign dubbed Operation Rainfall in an attempt to show Nintendo that the company is leaving money on the table by not offering these games to the American market. (Industry, Mother 3, Nintendo, Pandora's Tower, The Last Story, Wii, Xenoblade, Xenoblade Chronicles)

"Working hard? Not hard enough if the fans are the judge. Just remember, Rainfallers, that if your campaign fails, there's always unofficial translation projects. That worked for Mother 3, it worked for Fatal Frame IV,"

really, translate the games when they are coming to europe...

Why not push earth bound when your characters are in the cult smash bros. People know the characters
but now their stories ..

isn't that sad ?
