Remember Operation Rainfall? The movement that aimed to persuade Nintendo of America to localize Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower? Well, here’s something similar.
Project Crystallis is a fan based movement on the Gamefaq Boards that aims to gain information about Final Fantasy Versus XIII and the Type-0 localization process. It will do this by making a statement to the Square Enix PR Department. The movement also hopes to get information on other titles such as Final Fantasy X HD. This movement originated due to feelings of frustration amongst fans as they have not been provided with proper information about Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Type-0.
What’s distinctive about this group is that it hopes to carry out peaceful negotiations. Unlike the fans on other boards complaining about how ‘Lightning Saga sucks’ and ‘Square is crap for not giving us Versus’, Project Crystallis understands that this is not the way to do things. The movement will have their voices heard through YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, message boards and contacts to Square Enix, hoping for Square to notice and provide information.
So spread the word, join the cause and sign the petition if you’re one of the frustrated fans who believe that it’s about time Square listened to what the fans want.
I believe that this is a great way to demand news for Versus and Type-0. With the absence of Versus at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, and no update on Type-0′s localization, this is just what Final Fantasy fans needed. Let’s admit it, the people who thought of this were geniuses. All these years, fans have simply written hateful comments on various websites about the Lightning Saga while asking for Versus at the same time. This is obviously not the way to ask a company for what you want. We should have had a movement like this years ago. Project Crystallis has a lot of potential. If it’s base improves, it will gain a lot of influence as well. Lets hope this group grows fast. Who knows, Square might just change their line-up for TGS if we ask nicely.
