Nintendo writes back to Operation Rainfall via snail mail photo



Maybe I'm just desperate for some happy Nintendo news on this bleak Monday night, but I'm actually feeling encouraged by this token gesture of acknowledgment for Nintendo of America. Ms. (or Mr.?) Sissy Barner of Nintendo of America is sending out typewritten, hand-signed letters to those who have sent the company written requests for them to localize The Last Story, Pandora's Tower, and Xenoblade. According to the letter, Sissy Barner "...can see why you want to see games like Xenoblade, The Last Story, or Pandora's Tower released in the Americas, but at this time we have no additional information of announcements to make regarding these games. I realize this is disappointing, but your comments have been made available for other departments here to use as they see fit. We appreciate hearing what our consumers find important."

The fact that they're taking the time to send out letters like this, combined with Nintendo of America's move to trademark The Last Story, and the rumors and reports that the company is already working on U.S. versions of both Xenoblade and The Last Story, has me feeling a little more hopeful that these games will make it stateside. I'm betting that if all three of these games sell well enough in Europe, we'll get them here. If only Mega Man Legends 3 got the same chance at survival.
