Fans bring Xenoblade to #1 on Amazon, internet goes wild

It looks the vague report from Nintendo customer service that Xenoblade (also known as Monado: Beginning of the World) is still slated for release in the United States isn't confirmation enough for some people. A group of fans, calling themselves Operation Rainfall, is working hard to make sure that Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower are all released in the Untied States. It looks like a little organization and planning can go a long way, as the group has already helped to get Monado to the #1 spot on Amazon.com's gaming pre-order list, beating out Ocarina of Time 3D and the Call of Duty: Black Ops PS3 bundle .

They've also found the support of the game's developers, like Soraya Saga (writer of Xenoblade/Monodo) and Mistwalker (creator of Final Fantasy and The Last Story) via twitter, on Nintendo's Youtube page, and lets not forget that letter writing campaign from a little while back as well. The one place that Operation Rainfall hasn't made much noise yet is twitter, so if you want to follow them and help get that going yourself, feel free.

Nintendo might not make a ton of money by releasing The Last Story or Xenoblade in the U.S., but it would do wonders for their reputation in the gaming community. If they can afford hiring Beyonce and Helen Miren to sell their games, they can afford to take the risk on this display of good faith to gaming's most loyal and dedicated fans.
