RUMOUR CONTROL: Nintendo Localizing Xenobloade, The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower in North America
A few weeks ago, that the three new games they’d developed, Xenoblade, The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower (which look awesome, by the way), will not be released in North America, because apparently, there wasn’t a market for them there. Fans rallied together and mounted a massive campaign to get these games released, and when Nintendo answered after a week of campaigning, they still hadn’t changed their mind.
Now, things seem to be changing. According to an Operation Rainfall Blogspot blog, Xenoblade’s NTSC localization was completed over a month ago, The Last Story’s localization will begin in a month, but currently, there’s no news on Pandora’s Tower.
The blog says Nintendo disclosed this information to Operation Rainfall (the name of the campaign), in confidence. Until Nintendo of America makes an official announcement, nothing is concrete. But the games are supposed to be coming to NA soon, so that explains why sites like Amazon are still taking pre-orders for them.
This doesn’t say much about the campaign, and the source isn’t very trusted, but we do hope it’s true.
