    I have a feeling the article will be soon removed from Wikipedia for lack of notability.

    What makes you think so? Articles on any subject have nothing to worry if they are well-sourced with established references. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrono_Trigger:_Crimson_Echoes for instance.

    Because Crimson Echoes was a huge project over the course of half a decade, in which people with skill sets actually produced something.

    This is just a bunch of random, talentless people, on the internet yet again whining that some game didn't get translated. You want it translated? Do it yourself or shut up.

    Well you're hugely misinformed. Xenoblade is already translated.

    Note how the number "three" is larger than the number "one."

    Let's hope this doesn't end the same as Mother 3. Hopefully NoA would've learnt something from their mistake.

    I hope this campaign goes somewhere




    I kinda doubt it. Have you seen some of the stuff on Wikipedia?

    Those are all legitimately notable subjects.

    I was going to agree with Urza on this one...but I gotta say that this group at least deals with reality rather than rely on things like petitions. I bet massive pre-ordering like this is far more likely to be successful than "that talentless whining" Urza describes.

    Good luck, guys. [​IMG]

    Nintendo is a company who likes the "fame" of doing everything for their custumors, even tough we all know that is far from the truth, so pressing them for releases like this seems to fit the best way to make them go forward with something.

    I really appreciate the effort. Even if this doesn't bring success, I hope it might at least show Nintendo that we're pretty upset about it. That might at least make a difference for future games.

    This may sound extreme to some, but I've decided I'm not gonna bother buying a WiiU unless there is a noteable change in localization policy. For an RPG fan, the lack of localization hurts so much more. I've seen great and successful RPGs get stuck in Japan since the SNES days (for no sensible reason) but at least back then there were plenty of great RPGs available so you didn't care too much. Since then, though, the number of decent RPGs has dropped considerably. Look at the Wii: there are... 2 decent role playing games. 2. And one of em (Monster Hunter Tri) is far more an action game than a role playing game.
