Rumour: Last Story Coming to Europe?

Rumour: Last Story Coming to Europe? on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Mistwalker's exclusive Wii RPG may be receiving the localisation treatment if a Nintendo representative is to be believed.

According to JRPG Tribe, a rep at this year's MCM Expo in London suggested that The Last Story is getting a European release.

Last year Mistwalker replied, "Thank you for your message and your patience. Keep your fingers crossed for an announcement in Europe" and with Xenoblade Chronicles making the cut, there is a strong chance of fellow Nintendo-published Japanese RPGs following suit.

Nintendo has yet to announce a localisation of The Last Story for Europe. Would you be interested in the game?

Great news! But I personally don't play (J)RPGs...

This is awesome as the game looks really good. I have a hankering for a good old fashioned JRPG and the Last Story looks like Wii's best (not that Xenoblade or that new Nintendo RPG look bad).

This will only make me happy if a USA release is close behind. Smilie

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

Just like I've said with Xenoblade before, Nintendo would be totally mad if they make the effort to translate two huge RPGs into 5 languages for Europe and not release them in the US as well. Usually it's the other way around due to Europe needing more than just English. That's also often the reason why we have to wait longer for some games to come out.

Just wait patiently for E3 where we'll probably get an official confirmation/unveil for both The Last Story and Xenoblade for the US since E3 is being held there after all.

Our member of the week

They translated Another Code R, Last Window and Disaster Day of Crisis for Europe, but they are still nowhere to be seen in the US. This might become a trend in the future, that Europe gets games that the USA don't get.

The USA might start to feel just like we did during all those years of not getting games which could have done well in Europe just with the English language (namely Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, and so many other RPGs...)

That being said, I can see Xenoblade being a European exclusive (Reggie doesn't seem to like Monolith Soft too much if what he said about Disaster still holds true today... dunno why he said that) but I think Last Story will definitely be coming to the US as well.
