Nintendo acknowledges fan movement

"Look for more updates to come soon!"

Nintendo has hinted that Japan-exclusive Wii games The Last Story and Pandora's Tower will launch on these shores.

Nintendo offered an olive branch to angry fans who had spammed the Japanese company with requests to localise some of the Wii's most promising games.

On Friday last week Wii fans took to Nintendo of America's Facebook page to call for US releases of JRPGs Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story and Pandora's Tower.

Xenoblade Chronicles has a confirmed European release, but The Last Story and Pandora's Tower are, at the time of writing, exclusive to Japan.

"Hey fans, we appreciate your enthusiasm," Nintendo said on Facebook. "Look for more updates to come soon!"

Following a mass pre-order campaign, Xenoblade Chronicles, or Monado: Beginning of the World as it's known in the US, is top of the video game chart on Amazon.
