Xenoblade looks like one of those games JRPGs NEED. Last Story meanwhile looks like what happened when you make JRPGs conform with popular Western design, and Pandora's Tower looks like one of those games that seems neat but ends up being underwhelming, kinda like some of the Wii games announced we didn't get and people forgot about shortly after release.

I still want Another Code-R and Fatal Frame IV. :(
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

I'll (mostly) blame Tecmo for Fatal Frame IV. Can't really blame Nintendo for wanting to publish a product with known serious bugs, and frankly I would much rather have all the worst patched out anyway.

... And man, how did Grasshopper/Tecmo completely ignore using the Wii Remote as a flash light? Geez.

I still don't understand why Nintendo didn't release the "New Play Control!" version of Pikmin 2 in America. They released the first one, why not the sequel?

I read that someone tried this with Mother 3 and was a very well done campaign but Nintendo still crushed hopes.  I wonder if this will happen again or if this does prove to be successful, maybe Nintendo will go back from their past Wii and DS games that didn't make it over and bring them here for us to enjoy.  I've already listed the games I want brought over but I know that's never happening.

Mother 3 had a lot of hurdles Xenoblade at the least doesn't have:

1. Mother 3 was never translated by Nintendo into English in any part of the world, there's only a fan translation.
2. The game was coded in a way that made translating very difficult, which would further disincline Nintendo from wanting to bother.
3. The game came out almost two years after the DS debuted, and the last game worth giving a damn about was Final Fantasy VI Advance, hitting in January and thus less than a year after Mother 3's debut.
4. There MIGHT be some of the same legal issues plaguing it that plagued Mother 1 + 2, which have yet to hit the Virtual Console in any part of the world.

At least 2 of those don't apply to Xenoblade (there could always be legal issues for the US but not Europe/Japan, or at least cultural issues), and it seems to me like the game's probably coded in a translation friendly method if NoE's translating it, and that won't even matter unless NoA decides they MUST translate from scratch.

Doesn't anyone know what the Japanese content is?  Forget spoilers, what the fuck is the problem here?

I get the Earthbound example, but Xenoblade is a complete mystery to me... what, why?  Seriously, what? 

I think it's Wii games in general.

I think after Baten Kaitos Origins, which apparently didn't sell too well, Nintendo wrote off all console jRPGs. That's just my opinion, and if it turns out to be true, it isn't a very good reason, as Baten Kaitos Origins didn't have much advertising, and it's been six years since.

As far as what I said about legal/cultural issues? That was just speculation, I don't know anything beyond the fact you can buy a bikini for one of the characters early on, and if it doesn't show on the character model (or if it's not preposterously threadbare) I can't imagine what the problem would be.

I was thinking that NoA thinks that with the popularity of sports, FPS's, Western RPG's, there is no need for JRPG's on the Wii, why though?  People still play these damn games.  I hope Operation Rainfall is a success.  If Nintendo blows their customers off by not bringing these over, I will have absolute hate for Nintendo and that was very hard for me to type.  I can imagine how the Wii U is going to be treated for it's software if this doesn't come to fruition.  I was thinking that The Last Story and Xenoblade were going to be released on the Wii U because of the delay so far but that's not the case.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.
