This The Last Story preview will give a quick look at what can be expected from Mistwalker & AQ Interactive’s upcoming action-RPG title.

Set on Ruli Island, governed by Count Earl Arganan, players will take on the role of Zael and his allies, a group of mercenaries that have come to the island seeking work and journey with them into an epic adventure!

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.

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.
