Time to Reload, Stay tuned for further updates.
This week Amazon.com has taken away the ability to pre-order Xenoblade under its working title Monado: Beginning of the World.
This was our primary source of ammunition in our campaign, and was one of our driving forces to gaining momentum. Monado sat for nearly a week at #1 (All Games) and for nearly two weeks (Wii Games), and went on to hit #1 again multiple times during the course of our campaign. The fact that the page still exists on Amazon is reassurance that they have simply frozen the ability to pre-order until they receive confirmation from Nintendo.
Either way, this makes it more important than ever before to get the message across to Nintendo Co., Ltd. (Japan) and Nintendo of America through written letters, phone calls, and emails. Please stay tuned for more information when we will target a call-in/email/physical mail date.

Operation Rainfall en Español
Because NTSC-U region includes both North and South America, many of our followers speak Spanish as their primary language. We want to welcome our new Spanish Team, who will be providing official translations for Spanish speakers, and eventually, we are hoping that our Spanish Team will be able to get in touch with the Latin American representatives at Nintendo of America.
Open Letter to Nintendo of America
The staff of Operation Rainfall will be writing a personal letter to the management and marketing teams at Nintendo of America. This will be separate from any of our phases/missions. Is there anything you would like us to address in our letter? Please let us know in the comments below.
Have a great week!
