Joel Taveras writes, "This isn’t meant to upset or stir fans of the genre, more of an observation of what I’ve been noticing as an industry trend lately. Last week Nintendo upset enthusiasts across the US with their reply to “Operation Rainfall”. The fan-led localization initiative and it’s followers were let down after being told by Nintendo that they had “no plans” of releasing the titles in question in the US any time soon. And while some would argue that the error is on Nintendo’s end, maybe they see something that the rest of us don’t. And come to think of it, I don’t think they’re the only company out there that feels this way."
