Operation Rainfall regroups, focuses on The Last Story photo



Nintendo of America got to look like a big hero last year when it caved and announced that Xenoblade Chronicles would come Stateside. The consumer pressure group Operation Rainfall, however, is not satisfied, and intends to focus its efforts on The Last Story

"Between the dates of January 27th (the 1 year anniversary of The Last Story releasing in Japan) and February 24th (the European release date for The Last Story) we will be focusing our content on The Last Story as well as the people behind the game, Hironobu Sakaguchi (the creator of Final Fantasy) and Nobuo Uematsu (famed Japanese composer, best known as well for his work on Final Fantasy)," said Rainfall member Tyson Gifford.

"On the 27th we will be contacting Nintendo in mass again, after that we will be doing everythign we can to raise public awareness of the title and it's link to Sakaguchi and the Final Fantasy franchise.  We find it absurd that the title is so little known considering it's pedigree, and we hope to correct that this month."

The group will be coordinating efforts on Facebook and Twitter, and will be presenting videos on Youtube. As someone who wanted this game the moment it was announced, I totally wish them the best!
