A sad day indeed

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!

 

You can check out the full comment on the Nintendo Facebook page.  This post in particular already has over 4,000 comments!

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.

About the author:

Jeremy’s love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80’s when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he’ll answer, “the day I beat Zelda 2.” To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers.

Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.

    Nintendo truly keeps core gamers interest at heart.

      I’m very disappointed with this decision.  Since my console is hacked, I may just import this game from Europe.

     That stinks. Another reason I wish they’d been released on PS3 instead…but then again with the Tales games taking so long on PS3…
