The Last Story Heads to US

The Last Story Heads to US on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

American Wii owners pining for a release of the critically acclaimed RPG The Last Story can rest easy. It's coming!

As part of today's Nintendo Direct announcements, the North American arm confirmed an eventual release, with XSEED jumping into the publisher's seat. It marks the second Wii-exclusive title that had previously been continually denied for localisation, however with popularity soaring through the fan-driven Project Rainfall, Nintendo have decided to grant the game life in the US.

Developed by leading Japanese outfit Mistwalker and headed by the creator of Final Fantasy, the project is due out in Europe this week, and we're very much excited to once again be lured into a action-packed world on Wii, packed to the brim with traditional RPG mastery and a tantalising storyline.

Together, these two games level up the excitement for RPG fans in America. Whether roaming the vast landscape of Xenoblade Chronicles or choosing crossbows to battle with or against companions in The Last Story, gamers will recognize these titles as benchmarks for the genre.

That's two of the three. Will Pandora's Tower get released in the US too?

Makes you wonder why Nintendo of America isn't going to localise it themselves, but let XSEED do it instead. I suppose it doesn't really matter in the end but it still makes it look like NoA isn't fully confident in The Last Story's ability to sell well enough to make it worth the effort. Eh whatever, I'm glad that our fellow American gamers will get to play it too. Smilie

Don't toy with me Nintendo, just confirm Pandora's Tower now while your at it will ya.

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
