  • Likened to the hugely successful Final Fantasy series, because it’s made by the Final Fantasy series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi. The Last Story is a Wii-exclusive, action-RPG title developed by Mistwalker and AQ Interactive.

    The game was released in Japan on January 27, 2011 and will see a European release on February 24, 2012.

    Get a sneak peek of The Last Story’s battle system in this Japanese demo!

    The Gathering system is showcased, in detail, in this Japanese video commentary chock-full of gameplay footage.

    And feast your eyes on this demonstration from the 40+ minute long “The Last Story” presentation (in Japanese) with Hinonobu Sakaguchi behind the wheel!

    Key Features of The Last Story

    Here is a list of key features that will be available in Mistwalker & AQ Interactive’s The Last Story based on news and announcements made so far.

    • 6-Player Co-op: The Last Story features 6-player cooperative and competitive online modes, where users can team up or battle one another.
    • Customization: Players will have the chance to customize many elements in-game. For example, by visiting the blacksmiths you can upgrade your weapons, armor and even alter a character’s appearance!
    • Third-Person-Shooter Elements: The game will features a few mechanics typical of third-person shooters; players can use rapid fire crossbows and cover in combat using a cover system that includes an over the shoulder view.
    • Character Abilities: Character can use special abilities in-game. Some have been confirmed including Elza’s “gathering” ability, which allows the player to draw the attention of foes and buy time for allies, and “Focus”, which reveals an enemies weak-spots and allows for long-range attacks.

    Take a look at the European debut trailer!

      Hironobu Sakaguchi knows how to make a game. I really liked Blue Dragon and Lost Oddysy but it seems like The Last Story will be exclusive to the Wii. I wonder why Sakaguchi platform hops like that?

    • Mike

      @cherubicwindigo:disqus Bills to pay is probably why. The 2 Xbox 360 rpgs you mention were financed by Microsoft in exchange for exclusivity and I read somewhere the Wii-exclusive rpg is being co-produced by Nintendo.

      Yeah, that’s true. Hironobu Sakaguchi doesn’t come cheap, I’m sure.
