HERE’S HOW TO SEND AN EMAIL TO NINTENDO’S HEADQUARTERS IN JAPAN:
If you can translate correctly in Japanese, it would be preferred, but they will still get the point as long as your email includes the keywords “Pandora’s Tower” and “America” and you keep the rest short and simple.
You may alternately enter the following Japanese phrases in the body:

Remember, you will need to submit TWICE, first on the email screen, and again on the confirmation screen. You will receive a confirmation number AND email if submitted correctly.
What is Pandora’s Tower, and why should you (and Nintendo of America) take interest?

It’s been well over a year since we began our push for three magnificent Wii titles – Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, and Pandora’s Tower. In that amount of time, we went from hearing that Nintendo had “no plans” to release these three games in America, to seeing the launch of Xenoblade Chronicles on April 6th and seeing The Last Story released just a few weeks ago, thanks to XSEED Games. In both cases, we simply received a direct port of the localization by Nintendo of Europe. However, we haven’t heard a single word from Nintendo of America regarding Pandora’s Tower, which also received the localization treatment from NoE, meaning that on a technical level, there is nothing that should prevent Nintendo of America from bringing the game here. The game is completed, debugged, translated, and localized. The localization is very nicely done, and will be pleasing to anyone that enjoyed the excellent localization of Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story.
Unlike The Last Story, there are no online features, meaning that Nintendo will not need to worry about servers or any type of online licensing. All it needs is to be printed onto NTSC discs, marketed, and distributed, and the game will have automatic appeal to nearly all who purchased Xenoblade Chronicle and The Last Story.
This year may be the final year for the Wii, but its spirit will live on with the upcoming Wii U, which is fully compatible with all Wii games and accessories. If Nintendo or a publishing partner were to release Pandora’s Tower this year, it would actually have the chance to sell to both Wii and Wii U audiences. And now is the perfect time to start planning it’s release. Perhaps a Halloween release would be a perfect release date…
Either way, this campaign represents the final push by Operation Rainfall to convince Nintendo, both in Japan and America, that we want to play the game. In the end, that final decision rests with Nintendo alone.
