FourPlay Games is proud to announce our support for Operation Rainfall, the fan movement organized to lobby Nintendo of America to localize Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Pandora’s Tower.
Operation Rainfall began June 22nd on the IGN message boards and quickly spread across the internet, from Facebook to Twitter to game news sites such as IGN, Joystiq, and Kotaku. The movement sparked the most attention when fans organized a mass preorder for Xenoblade that propelled the RPG to the top of Amazon’s sales charts. Nintendo of America has even taken notice and has thanked fans for their enthusiasm and promised more updates to come.
Starting in July, Operation Rainfall will begin a letter-writing campaign for each of the three games they are requesting to be localized. Letter templates are available on the Operation Rainfall website and have the following target dates for delivery to Nintendo: July 11-13 for Xenoblade, July 18-20 for The Last Story, and July 25-27 for Pandora’s Tower.
4P is proud to support Operation Rainfall, as we fully believe that these three quality experiences will greatly enhance the Wii’s library up to the release of Wii U. Like many gamers, we were disappointed at the total disregard for the games at E3 2011 and the omission of them from any North American release schedules (despite both Xenoblade and The Last Story being confirmed for European release, and therefore English translation).
