Well, it looks like that customer service rep at Nintendo spoke too soon when she confirmed Xenoblade for a North American release. Nintendo finally gave an official statement regarding the triplet of Wii RPGs via its Facebook account earlier today.
“Thank you for your enthusiasm. We promised an update, so here it is. We never say ‘never,’ but we can confirm that there are no plans to bring these three games to the Americas at this time. Thanks so much for your passion, and for being such great fans!”
Unless you’re holding out for Zelda, you might as well call the doctor in to pronounce the Wii dead. The fight to localize continues on for Operation Rainfall, but the chances look pretty bleak. Nintendo has some really loving fans, but it seems like it’s a one sided relationship.
