The Last Story is, appropriately enough, the last major RPG for the Nintendo Wii. The game is the brainchild of Final Fantasy creator and Mistwalker Studios founder Hironobu Sakaguchi. Originally released in Japan in 2011, The Last Story is part of the so-called ‘Rainfall Trilogy’—three Wii-exclusive RPGs (Xenoblade Chronicles and Pandora’s Tower being the other two) that actually had nothing to do with one another except that Nintendo of America stubbornly refused to localize them. Anyway, while Nintendo of Europe oversaw The Last Story’s release in the Old World back in February, NoA ultimately passed on it and was instead localized by XSeed Games. And with Pandora’s Tower unlikely to see a North American release before the launch of the Wii U in the fall, it’s looking very likely that The Last Story will be the Wii’s last hurrah as well.
