Pandora's Tower

Operation Rainfall to pitch Pandora's Tower to publishers

3:00 AM on 04.22.2012 // Brett Zeidler

After using two similar campaigns with Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story, Operation Rainfall is trying something new with their approach to get Pandora's Tower published in the US. In addition to fans rallying to pester Nintendo of America directly (which absolutely worked last time) on Facebook, Twitter, over the phone, and email, Operation Rainfall wants to pitch Pandora's Tower to publishers themselves.

So, how exactly are they going to achieve that? They break down the nuances of the plan over on their blog post, but basically what it comes down to is if they can afford it or not. Aksys Games, Atlus, NIS America, Rising Star, UTV Ignition, and XSEED are the six publishers they plan on pitching to. It will cost $100 to pitch to each publisher, leaving a grand total of $600.

That's why Operation Rainfall is asking their supporters for donations. Anyone who donates $5 will get a download of a high-definition wallpaper pack, and anyone who donates $10 will get the wallpaper pack and a collector's case big enough to hold the three Operation Rainfall titles. The only catch is this plan is not a guaranteed thing, and the donations will be used as they come in. As a result, you CANNOT receive a refund even if Pandora's Tower is picked up or not.

It seems weird to me that Operation Rainfall is going this way about it, but they have proven in the past that they can be effective and get these titles over here, so I have no doubt in my mind that this will work. Especially when companies like Atlus have a history with localizing seemingly niche titles and getting very strong sales in return. Plus, it would just be cool to have that collector's case. To own a piece of history that symbolizes fans coming together and getting three JRPGs brought over to the US would be truly amazing. Besides, what's a measly $10 for a great cause?

Oh, look at that, the rough draft I choose not to delete of this paper I need to do! I can keep adding to that instead of starting over and getting frustrated and quitting. What a novel concept!

I'm coming to realize my time off from blogging has made the progress I made at being succinct fade away into nothingness, as the world will see in about an hour. I also made Valkyrie Drive's boobs even more boring at Japanator last night! Somehow.
Apparently, Kero Blaster got an update... Neat.

Season 2 of Fargo is out, and of course Fargo isn't Fargo without dumbass criminals, tragedy and black comedy mixed into one package. BTW, the Organic Mechanic is in this season.

Had the brilliant idea of watching the original Alien last night before bed. Totally didn't have crazy dreams afterward. Also, Bilbo Baggins was a total jerk in that movie. [img][/img]

Finished playing the fan localization for Ace Investigations 2. These guys did a fantastic job, despite this game having the single most convoluted plot in the entire series. Here's hoping that somehow, someday, Great Ace Attorney will get this treatment.
