I've been spamming their email, facebook, and twitter whenever I've been waiting for something to load or am just generally bored. This has totaled up to a few comments, a ton of tweets, and over 30 emails. And I plan on sending a few physical letters later on.

I'm usually not one for campaigning. Things like petitions for Diablo 3 to change the art direction rub me the wrong way. If video games are to be considered a creative media, the actual developers should be given the choice to exercise which little creativity is left to them (same situation with Wind Waker).
But the lack of support NoA shows for this game (and The Last Story) is outrageous. It's a finished game, Nintendo owns the IP and all they have to do is to pay for a translation, promote and release the game. Even worse, if they managed to reach an agreement with NoE, they could just use a translation that's already being done. It's not like they have anything besides Zelda they could claim to be a "core game" until maybe DQX. Although JRPGs are a niche today, there should be tangible interest in Xenoblade, if they can get coverage for it on dedicated blogs like nintendolife and sites with more mass appeal like ign or more specialized Manga/Anime orientated sites. It's not like it's raining JRPGs these days. They simply refuse to release games they already have... >:-[
Living in Europe, I'm lucky, but if I was living in the US, my resolve not to homebrew my Wii would be shattered the moment Xenoblade releases in the EU and not in the US.
There is a post on gonintendo about another campaign of sorts to bring Xenoblade over: Amazon.com has Monado still listed:
So, if you're living in the US, want Xenoblade (aka Monado), you could just as well preorder it. If Amazon can rack up a couple of thousand preorders, it shouldn't go unnoticed. Amazon only charges when they send out a product and if Xenoblade should never see a release, you will never pay. Even if nothing happens, NoA should get the message.

I live in the UK so this doesn't affect me but it does raise the question - why arn't games released in one region but not another region free? It's kind of like Nintendo telling you what games you must like and what you should buy based on where you live. Whenever a game isn't released here I do find it frustrating - the game exists, I can buy it but I can't play it (at least not without modifying my console, which gets you punished these days). Sigh - I hope this gets a release everywhere.

^It's to get you to buy games in your own country. Specifically, it's to prevent people from Europe and Australia from purchasing games from the U.S., which will inevitably be released sooner.

I've been waiting for Monado since E3 2009 but it fell off my radar as I somehow missed the name change even though I've been hearing alot about Xenoblade lately. And while I agree this isn't a good place to promote "illegal" activity, I think it sends a good message. Nintendo is sending us a message - the Wii is dead (see Pikmin 3's move to WiiU from Wii). IF they aren't going to care enough about their system to bring us finished, completed, and favorably reviewed games that we want, and they are going to move games to the new system, then they shouldn't complain about us importing games. If the Wii is dead and not being supported we should been able to do with it whatever we want. And if the EU is getting an English translation but no the US, well damn them.

Yep I know why they do it with multi-region releases, but I don't see why they do it with region specific ones. It'd be nice if they said "we're not releasing this in your region but the states got it so go nuts on import". It's not going to hurt anyone if they made the UK Xenoblade region free so US fans can buy it too should they choose not to release it there.

Unfortunately, that's not how the Wii's region locking works.

Although I support these term of events...I do feel that some people are going OTT about it...Europeans have always been neglected games wise but carry on with their lives over more important matters.
Main Final Fantasy & Quest/Shinobi Team fan...but I do like many SEGA games and a few Nintendo games.
I can be cute if I want to be, but I choose not to...as it's not my style.

...I have no words for how awesome this is. I mean, everyone could forget this tomorrow but for all this to apparently happen within the span of a single day is pretty impressive.

If people want to achieve anything though, a day isn't going to cut it. If the game can stay #1 an amazon for several days - and I doubt it can - then that's going to leave an impression. Sadly, NoA could just end it by having amazo remove the listing for the game. :-/

The flooding of mail, email, the tons of comments on facebook and twitter help make a difference as well! There most recent facebook post has over 2600 comments all about localization!

This won't work guys. Reggie isn't a gamer, he's a marketer. He only cares about the money and making loads of it.
These games won't turn a profit, or won't turn one big enough to satisfy Reggie.
I swear. NoA when down the crapper when he took over. From a gamers perspective, not Nintendo's.
I have little hope that these games will be brought over regardless of what protests there are. THUS my only hope is that people remember this when the Wii U comes out and hit NoA where they do care. By not buying the Wii U.
This is a PR fail on NoAs part. E3 was them touting that core gamers can get a great experience with the Wii U, yet here we are in the present and Nintendo of America is treating them like garbage, and we're suppose to believe they wont' do this next generation? Please.
Don't buy the Wii U if these games aren't localized and tell as many people as possible not to buy it either. THEN they'll reconsider treating gamers like dirt when it comes to porting over good games as opposed to crap.
