Our support for Operation Rainfall is well known, and we’ve been wondering what reasons Nintendo really has for holding back these amazing titles. Almost every excuse thrown out is pretty much complete shit. Nintendo is, literally, leaving money on the table. As the graph showed in the video, a lot of these more “core experiences” sell a shit ton better in the states than they do in Japan. They usually even outsell all of Europe. It’s no surprise then that the same audience who has likely been loving the few core experiences we do get are pretty pissed off.
Nintendo of America is simply being lazy to their own demise. No other way I can explain why they would “want” to leave this sort of money on the table. Unless Nintendo makes a quick turn around on their stance, they are doing nothing but encouraging illegal means to play the game.
