    to be honest, the first game never made enough sense to me to even want to play the second game.

    I totally would... if it wasn't a facebook page. I'm not creating an account just for this.

    The problem here is that for this to succeed the japanese people need to show their support.

    Yeah, I like the idea, but I don't really know that it's going to do much good. As stated above, it's not the English-speaking communities that are going to sway Chunsoft any.

    Even if it were, has this ever truly worked? I'm pretty sure even when the 'big 3' Wii JRPGs got localized, everyone involved denied that Operation Rainfall really had anything to do with it.

    facebook "likes" arnt going to do anything for the actual cause

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    maybe if people go out and actually buy the games rather then downloading roms
    but to be fair VN's are a bit of niche genre, japan particularly is flooded with them, so trying to stand out from the crowd is a bit hard
    even phoenix wright games face the same troubles lately

    If you talk about charity via facebook likes then no - they aren't going to work. For gaming howerer it usually shows that there's at least some interest for title. Project Diva F got ported because Sega asked if there was interest for it and there was tons of likes and shares. Of course it should account where Miku is super popular in itself I'm pretty sure far less people have heard of Zero Escape series.

    I was almost about to say that there's no way to pirate 3DS games :P
    VLR has been on numerous sales on eShop and I think on EU it's right now.

    Facebook... Oh well. Liked anyway, 999 was almost as good as Ever17. Hopefully this one will be a 3DS title.
    Also thanks to fakenamegenerator.com and whatever was the third or so Google result of "disposable email" search query.

    I kinda doubt that this would do anything. They're not making the game because of a lack of Japanese sales. They already know that this game has a sizable English following.

    At first, I thought that it would be great if that was actually how "likes" worked. But then I thought about it, and Justin Bieber would be a god by now... so no thanks. Sorry, thirsty people.

    I liked the page. But that doesn't really mean squat. I also liked the Megaman Legends 3 and Funimation Shin-chan pages, but here we are with no ML3 or more Shin-Chan. The only way this will actually work is if the creator gets a kickstarter or something similar, then I can actually donate to the cause.

    If it's anything, even Uchikoshi himself acknowledges and is supporting this campaign through his English twitter and facebook page. But yeah, they really should advertise this on Japanese sites for more support because Spike Chunsoft only cares about Japan.

    Well, it may not do much, but I followed that page hoping that they will announce some sort of Kickstarter program for the third game.

    The facebook likes page are just to gauge interest, If it gets 1 milliion likes then thats potentially a million sales. Something like that anyway.
    It's just an easy way to gauge interest instead of having tons of separate petitions that no one really takes seriously.
