Guys it's time to step into high gear. Maybe even update the OP because it's damage control time.
The internet can be a big echo chamber. That can be a benefit for a campaign like this, but can also cut it short when you have people come along late in the game. If you haven't been following Xenoblade for awhile, you might not know that Nintendo has essentially been handing out the same PR customer service responses for the past year. Well, look what story popped up today:
this story from **********
We need to step up our game and let these people and their followers know that a Nintendo customer service response is not good enough. It has very little authoritative weight. In fact, Disaster: Day of Crisis got similar "reconfirmations" before NoA pulled the rug.
But...but...it was scheduled for release?!?! That's the danger of not ever having a release date set. Nintendo can pluck it away at any time, as NoA seems poised to do with Xenoblade. I've already called out these stories on the OpRainfall twitter (Jim Sterling was not entirely pleased), but I can't do it by myself.
Don't let this erroneous, albeit with good intentions, information overtake our momentum.
We've got a long way to go to bring Xenoblade, Pandora's Tower, and The Last Story to North America.
