Found on their Facebook page is this quote in response to the “Operation Rainfall” campaign whose members, by their zeal and interest were trying to persuade Nintendo to bring 3 of the big Wii RPGS stateside.
Thank you for your enthusiasm. We promised an update, so here it is. We never say ‘never,’ but we can confirm that there are no plans to bring these three games to the Americas at this time. Thanks so much for your passion, and for being such great fans!

Personally, I’m really bothered by this move. I can always import the game but that is not as convenient. I was truly hoping Nintendo would bring Xenoblade to America. Maybe sometime in the future this will happen, but for now, we wait. Chime in in the comments section to let us know what you think of it. While you’re at it, head over to the Nintendo Facebook page and give them a piece of your mind, in a civilized manner please.
