Operation Rainfall Phase 2: Buy Final Fantasy on Wii

Operation Rainfall is not finished in its quest to get Xenoblade, Pandora's Tower and The Last Story released in North America, and has begun phase two of operations. As well as encouraging Europeans to buy Xenoblade and show Reggie that gamers care, phase two consists of an ... odd ... idea. 

The group is planning a "mass purchase" of Final Fantasy on the Wii's Virtual Console. They're rallying the troops to buy the NES game on the same day Xenoblade launches in Europe. The idea is to show "intent to buy products," with Final Fantasy presumably used as evidence that Japanese Roleplaying Games still sell. 

I get the mentality, but I think buying Final Fantasy -- to date the only truly successful JRPG in the West -- will prove anything. If I'd have come up with this idea (and I wouldn't have), I'd at least pick a more obscure game. Even if they had done that, this is still a very weird direction to take, and not a move I can see yielding fruit.

Anyway, if you want to take part in this stage of the operation, they're buying Final Fantasy on August 19.
