XSEED Games is bringing The Last Story to America. GameStop and Nintendo brought Xenoblade Chronicles to the states. With this love for Japanese RPGs for the Wii that looked dim, one game is left out. Pandora’s Tower, insofar unannounced for America, would complete the trilogy of games if it were to be released. Australia and Europe have received it… but America has not.
Operation Rainfall, the organization trying their damndest to get these three games in America, have a new tactic. They’re appealing to six publishers of Japanese-focused games; Aksys Games, ATLUS, NIS America, Rising Star, UTV Ignition, and XSEED Games JKS.
Since we are pitching the game directly to publishers, with the hope that they will approach Nintendo to publish Pandora’s Tower, we want to make sure the kits contain everything the publisher needs to evaluate the benefits of localizing the game. Some items the staff are deciding to include are: A physical copy of the PAL version of the game, hi-res printouts of concept art for the game, printed copies of the many glowing reviews for the game, and possibly even a full printout of our original Operation Rainfall petition.
So, this is where fans come in. Operation Rainfall asked for a donation of $5 or $10 (or any amount, really), with the former netting gamers wallpaper, and the latter the wallpaper and a collector’s box to bundle all three titles.
Asked? They’ve already reached their goal. Gamers can still donate for the rewards. Here’s to hoping they succeed.
