>IMPORTANT UPDATE : JANUARY 06, 2012

Wow! Operation Rainfall sure has come a long ways since it first began over six months ago!  Since then, the campaign has taken a new direction and is under new leadership. It’s a better Operation Rainfall; a more organized version.

The most important news is that on December 2nd, 2011, Nintendo announced that Xenoblade is coming to our region on April 2nd, 2012! We at Operation Rainfall believe that how well Xenoblade sells will ultimately determine if we get the other two games the Last Story and Pandora’s Tower. This means that right now, the attention of the campaign is focused on Xenoblade, however, we are still a campaign for all three games. In fact, we have a campaign event planned for “The Last Story” later this month. We are also planning a Pandora’s Tower campaign event, after the release date of Xenoblade.

Contact NoA About “The Last Story” Day- On January 27, we currently have a “Contact Nintendo of America” day planned in which we will be mass communicating with Nintendo of America to let them know we are all still interested in The Last Story. January 27 is the one year anniversary of the games’ release in Japan. Details of the event planned for that day can be found here: http://on.fb.me/yk3BY6

Importance of Our Facebook Page. Our Facebook page has become the “hub” of our community and is currently at 11,000 people. So check it out if you have Facebook, and make sure to like the page while you are there. If you don’t have Facebook, no worries. We regularly update this blog to provide you with the latest information about our campaign, as well as the latest information about Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Pandora’s Tower. http://www.facebook.com/OperationRainfall

Thank You! Thank you all for supporting us as we continue campaigning to get these great games localized. We CAN get The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower, but only if we all work together!

here is a template letter:


 Dear Reggie/Conrad/Yuji/Satoru

As a fan of your company and of games like Castlevania, I was extremely excited about the reveal of Pandora’s Tower. From the initial cryptic reveal, to the delightfully twisted plot details that followed, I have been craving this game all year. I am deeply concerned that this game has no North American/Australian/European release planned, especially considering the sparse lineup on the wii in the next year. I have been a Loyal fan of this company for over “X” years, and yet there hasn’t been a game worth getting on your console for nearly 8 months… and nothing on the horizon to be excited about besides Zelda and Kirby, and yet Pandora’s Tower sits completed. Please consider your company’s fans, please bring Pandora’s Tower to us.

Sincerely,
(your name here – signed)

    >I am definitely SUPER excited for this one! We are going to need an extra helping of convincing to get Nintendo to bring this one over, so if you haven't heard of this game yet, take some time to look it up. IGN has an excellent "Videos" and a few previews for the game already!

    >Ack!"the plan is to flood Nintendo of America, Europe, and Australia with Letters and relevant items (such as books, pages from books, covers from books, etc…)"While making the template, you forgot to switch out The Last Story items with the Pandora's tower items. D=You should probably edit the post.

    >i was thinking…would it help to send letters to the Japan's office too? don't they have the biggest say, being headquarters and all?

  • Tuskus

    >It might be a little late to mention this, but there are some big problems with the template letter. Aside from the obvious grammar and capitalization errors, I don't think people should add the part about being interested in new Kirby or Zelda games. The reason Nintendo hasn't released any of the Rainfall games is because they don't feel that catering to the hardcore audience is profitable. Nintendo questions if they should spend their efforts releasing games that only hardcore gamers buy when they can get the casual and hardcore audiences to buy games like Kirby and Zelda. The best way to get a big corporation's attention is to threaten not buy their products.
