Phase 2 Wrap Up

As we begin wrapping up Phase 2 of Operation Zero's write-in campaign, that doesn't mean that we are done regarding communications with Nintendo. In the interim time between now and E3, we encourage you all to keep writing mail to Nintendo, calling their customer service line, and e-mailing Nintendo using their own customer service form. We need to make absolutely certain that they know we want this game, and we want to be as fresh on their minds as possible before E3. - J.T.

Show Your Support! Literally.

Looks like two OpZero members have decided to work together, and as a result, OpZero now officially has some merchandise. Want to show support and really bring the word out? We now have buttons that will allow you to do so. Major, major kudos to the both of you.

NOTE: A minimum of 20 or so buttons total is required, meaning if 20 people buy one button per person, the materials can be purchased and the buttons will be made, go show some love!

Head on over to Etsy for purchase buttons!




Okay, slight change of plans. Phase 2 is on and it's on now. All credit for this wonderful idea goes to Shawnel Fa, so thank her and praise her enthusiasm. This is an awesome idea.

Since the enthusiasm for this has kicked into full gear, Phase 2 is going to be signature collecting. Here's what we're going to be doing, there will be a link to an image down below, said image is actually a card that you print out.

You can print out as many copies of it as you think you'll need and gather signatures from everyone you know, friends, family, co-workers, etc. The more people sign these cards, the better. Once done, we're sending them all to Nintendo of America and Canada depending on where you are.

The deadline for this will be as follows:

East Coast - May 28th
MidWest - May 29th
West Coast - May 30th

If you need the address again, here it is:

Reginald Fils-Aime
c/o Nintendo of America
4600 150th Ave NE
Redmond, WA 98052

The image is right here:

Reason for the deadline? It's the last week before E3, I want to make sure our message is sent! Have faith everyone, we will get this game over to North America!

Nintendo Is Lacking in Horror

A great post from the IGN Boards:

IGNer 1: I see Nintendo [releasing games] for 2012 from both them and 3rd parties (at the very least):

Mario Party 9, Rhythm Heaven, The Last Story, Pandora's Tower, New Fatal Frame, Fatal Frame 4, Earthseeker, Rodea, Dragon Quest Collections, Dynamic Slash, Sengoku Basara Utage, Another Code R, Disaster, Dragon Quest X, Epic Mickey 2, and a minor Nintendo franchise (Wii _____/Other)

Responding to a comment that DQX is the only good game on the list by "IGNer 2":

IGNer 3: So, are you saying the The Last Story, Pandora's Tower, Fatal Frame, Epic Mickey, and Dragon Quest games aren't games worth getting? Every single one of those I just listed is an amazing game. The Last Story and Pandora's Tower are HUGELY great games, so much so, that a whole movement for them including Xenoblade Chronicles has been established. Along with that, the Fatal Frame games are great survival horror games, something that the Wii is surely lacking and just like they did with transitioning from N64 to Gamecube, I can imagine Big N releasing more adult-oriented games. With the backwards compatibility on Wii U, this also ensures that there are some hardcore games you can play on it in case the release schedule is dry. ........

Bad Year for the Wii

"2011 was not kind to Wii owners. While the 3DS had a rocky year of its own, and the Wii U began to take form, there simply were no games of note on Nintendo's home console until the final weeks of the year. To put it mildly, that kind of content management is unacceptable, particularly from a veteran publisher that has watched its previous two home platforms suffer the same fate. Why were no lessons learned? How did the release schedule simply bottom out in such a drastic fashion? The mere idea that Nintendo is forced to delay completed games like Xenoblade to 2012, for seemingly no other reason than to grasp at satisfying its customers until a new console arrives, is stunning.

What's scary is 2012 isn't necessarily looking much better, unless you're willing to invest a few hundred dollars in what Nintendo has planned next. The company will have a lot to prove in the coming year, particularly on the heels of a year like this one."


Needs some Fatal Frame in 2012, tbh. ;)

NoA confirms Xenoblade for NA


Within the last hour, Nintendo of America has confirmed via their official facebook page the release of the Japan-only released JRPG Xenoblade.

"It's confirmed! Next year, Wii players throughout North America can wield the Monado blade and join the epic battle between the Homs and the Mechons in Xenoblade Chronicles. Like this post if you're ready for an adventure on the surface of two frozen Titans!"

It seems that Operation Rainfall members have something to celebrate about.

Here's to hoping that Nintendo will consider releasing other games that were previously said to not be seen outside of Japan, including Fatal Frame.
