In ancient times, mysterious artifacts referred to as Remnants were discovered all over the world. People used these objects for their awesome powers — a choice that eventually began to cause a rift in the world’s balance. Equality was replaced by those who ruled and those who were ruled over. War was inevitable. A thousand years later is when this story begins in The Last Remnant…
Rush lives with his sister Irina on secluded Eulam Island, far from the power struggles for Remnants that are occurring back on the mainland. However, this peaceful life is shattered when his sister is suddenly kidnapped by a mysterious group of soldiers right before his eyes. He immediately sets off after them, unaware of the evils of the outside world but determined to find his sister at any cost.

To quote the GT video review: “The Last Remnant has a lot of depth, a nicely balanced risk/reward system, and presents a mean challenge. It’s not a good starter RPG, but genre fans will feel rewarded.
Last Remnant is a beautiful game with a curse. Gorgeous environments, detailed character designs, battle animations that make you feel the impact of every hit, and detailed enemy design all suffer from inconsistent engine performance and glitchy textures. Things get choppy regularly, and it’s an issue you’ll have to figure out if you can deal with it. At least the stutters don’t adversely affect the turn-based gameplay. Textures pop in and out constantly, and after a load it can take a couple seconds before the details emerge. It’s distracting. There’s no doubt about it.”
