I agree it's not as sexy as the other two.

Way more rare than other two though. And honestly I liked the vibrant colors on it

The 3 steelbooks are nice. I wish the Xenoblade one had a different cover, though. It's nice to have, but the other two are so much more gorgeous!

Can somebody explain how these three are related? Outside of Rainfall...is there anything connecting the three games? Why was an official promo for all three made?

I think the Xenoblade steelbook would look 100x better if it didn't have the stupid "Wii" branding on the top front (and the back).

Can somebody explain how these three are related? Outside of Rainfall...is there anything connecting the three games? Why was an official promo for all three made?


Operation Rainfall was just a fan campaign to get NoA to bring these 3 games over here. For some reason, NoA did not want to release these games over here (even though NoE already went through the trouble of translating them) even though the Wii's release schedule during that period was barren.

For some reason though, that name caught on and spread fast... to the point that HMV provided fans a promo box/artbook.

I don't think this has been posted yet but they posted pictures of the trilogy box's design. Just a heads up, it looks like crap and it's already being printed.

Did Nintendo ever say Operation Rainfall indeed had much of an influence in bringing over these titles?

Probably no just like xseed said no since they bought the game at TGS and pitch the game to the rest of the company and went from there. And :rofl: at that box

"No one will truly know the full impact Operation Rainfall had on the release of the three titles."

Ummm, I do. Absolutely none.

The front doesn't look that bad but the back really kills it... and as CheapLikeAFox says, they seem to give way too much credit to the campaign. I get that a lot of people think they did nothing but I do give them credit for all the noise they made. For people like me, who like RPGs but don't pay enough attention to the Wii, I didn't think too much of it when NA announced Xenoblade and TLS wouldn't be published here but Operation Rainfall really got me interested in the 3 titles.

The only reasons we got Xenoblade was because NoA saw NoE's sales, their barren schedule for 2012 and GS throwing some money at them. And we got TLS because Xseed probably said "we'll take care of the publishing and share profits with you".

If this campaign was the sole reason for NoA bringing these two games over, then they would have done a long time ago (before all of us started importing).

I feel like Operation Rainfall had more to do with an official collectors box being released in EU than they did in getting anything released here. I do however believe they were a reason that Xenoblade was the #1 preordered game on Amazon that day, simply by shoving the game down people's throats via social media and their website.

I think it's kind of funny that it says nobody will know how much operation rail fan had to do with the release of these three titles. THREE titles. It should be pretty clear that nobody had any impact in the release of Pandora's, seeing as how it wasn't released.

"This is it, the last chance the game has.

http://operationrain...rs-case-update/

At the very least, it's worth a try for everyone to come together and do what they can. Just give the site a read over and do your best to help!

Please everyone, if you honestly think it won't work, then what do you have to lose? But if it DOES work, it means you helped accomplished something!

It's the last game Operation Rainfall needs to bring over.
The case they made for the games looks amazing. Let's make it a prouder accomplishment by having all three games being fit for it."


This is what is being posted on various forums. I normally don't have problem with OR and I admire their passion for things they like but they seem to give WAY too much credit to themselves. Last chance? Who says? The case looks amazing? What?

Which kinda fits most dialogue in a JRPG when you think about it.

It's still too bad Pandoras Tower doesn't have any announcement or anything for a release in the U.S. I'm glad I bought the UK Limited Edition when I did.

Don't worry friend, it's only 10 dollars. Which if my friend who is good at math that I call my account is right, will cover half of my website hosting fee for the month.

And if you double your donation, I'll throw in a second one and write your name in gold sharpie on the bottom so you can show all your party guests that you're responsible for bringing this game over.
