Andriasang: It seems like we've waited for ages, but we now have our first real look at The Last Story. Nintendo gave the game's official site an update today with a first ever trailer.
looks REAL good so far if you ask me i can't even remember the last time i was looking forward to a console RPG its been a LONG while but im really looking forward to this one this game looks like it will keep me satisfied until i get to see DQX
RPGs are looking good on the Wii with Last Story and Xenoblade
I don't have a Wii. In fact I HATE the system. But I know wish to buy one because this game looks so fucking awesome. (I would have an excuse to get Monster Hunters Tri then too!)
Sakaguchi is the man! Square lost one of its finest men
Square needs to lose Nomura, so he can go work for Sony or independently, and let Square Enix die
(though still a great game), Their new game is seemingly exploding with innovation. I'm excited.
looks better than "great" if you ask me. it's looking phenomenal.
Man or it is a wii or a ps3...damn it, WANT THIS GAME.
Looks incredible and it makes me wonder why Xenoblade is so mediocre by comparison. The Last Story has incredible visuals for a Wii game while Xenoblade looks like it's worse then a PS2 game. Xenoblade had miles and miles of running through a seemingly unpopulated world while The Last Story is full to the brim with life. The combat as well looks really good and fast paced. I can't wait to play this it really looks great.
Still intrigued, but, that last scene notwithstanding, this is treading on some serious Real Is Brown territory.
Lost Odyssey wasn't half bad. So this game is on my radar and probably will buy unless it sucks beyond a reasonable doubt.
Best rpg on 360 so far, and one of my top 4.
And that all RPG gaming turned to action gaming
And now i was proven wrong, way to go Mistwalker I cant wait for the xbox 360 version too !!! Lost Odyssey is my best JRPG this generation by a landslide, so this on my 360 will be the 2ond best one !!!
"I cant wait for the xbox 360 version too !!!" That Nintendo sure is crafty, publishing its games for competing systems.
Unless Nintendo owns the IP, which seems to be the case of why there's no HD version.
I could not agree more. Sakaguchi is the last and best hope for JRPGS. He always ways. Everything Square has put out since he left has been shit.
you are such a douche for putting demon souls in the same league as ff13....
It looks good but outside of Japan the game's going to flop. The Wii audience doesn't care for this kind of game... I can't believe they made that generic POS Lost Oddessy for the X360 and this unique awesome looking game for the Wii. =/
There is an audience for this on the Wii. Maybe not the best selling audience because "Hardcore" gamers have given up on Nintendo...for some reason...because most of them are graphics whores...but there is a huge install base on the Wii..and if they can get some of that..then they will do alright. But I think both this and xenoblade will do well--i think where most gamers skip out is that they read reviews and most jrpgs/rpgs for the wii have been bad...but these two look beautiful.
Looks awesome... Can't wait! Really glad I bought a Wii. Hopefully this game can find that elusive balance between old-school charm and innovation that games like FFXIII have, for the most part, could not.
Looks like a PS2 game at best, the same with the animation.
well, its the wii, what did you expect? looks good for a wii game though.
Comparable with God of War II or FF12
Comparable with God of War II.
if you believe that looks like JUST a ps2 game than your actually more dumb that i originally thought way to go
It looks way more PS3 and 360 than ps2. Take your fan goggles off. This might even be the best RPG this generation. :)
>My face when the Wii gets one of the greatest RPGs of this generation.
Hironobu Sakaguchi = WIN.
hat battle system looks freaking sweet. Character designs look awesome and the enviroments look very well done. Shame we probably wont see it in the states at least until 2011. In the meantime, looks way more fun then FFXIII
where is my Lost Odyssey 2 and Blue Dragon 2 dammitttttt!!!!!!!!!!!
blue dragon 2 was already released on the DS
pfft.. Sakaguchi?! Ever since he left SE his game is mediocre at best, The Last Story would probably be the same old story. Then again, I can't blame the man, look at SE now their games production is mediocre just like Mistwalker. And something tells me that Sakaguchi is lazy, incapable, or afraid to go for a tougher challenge. All he wants is easy profit!
This game looks very intresting, a lot of elements were blending into the combat, hmm. I want to see a demo to get some more info on this. Trailer was cool though.
the game looks like what zelda aught to.
Beautiful, awesome, fantastic, mind blowing!!! now I only want 2 things, give me Japanese VO & release day and I am ready to buy a Wii for this game.
I love my ps3 and I used to love Square before Sakaguchi left, but to be honestt ff13 did not even feel like a FF to me at all, saw this trailer and wow that is innovation right there and the battle system looks so awesome, congrats Sakaguchi, you have made a masterpiece and I will buy it. As for FFvs13 Nomura is working on it, so I still have hopes that he can make it into a mindblowing JRPG as he has done wonders with the KH franchise, which feels so much more fresh to me.
best rpg i think
Is this the first jrpg that features a "cover system?". Back on topic, EPIC!
Look at those jealous haters! Ha! Cry moar! That look amazing!
It reminds me of White Knight Chronicles both with the combat and the towns. The graphics look late PS2 generation, although that's to be expected on the Wii. But if the story is as good as it seems then it should be awesome game.
I dont know, they just seem to use a browninsh tone, something lots of PS2 games did. And looking at the models they look far more detailed than any Ps2 game i've seen( in games this large). I say its far better than a PS2 game.
cant believe ms cancelled cry on and isnt asking for sequals to 360 rpgs WHAT THE FUCK MICROSOFT??????????
I hope Nintendo brings this and Xenoblade to the States. they have been finicky with what titles they do and do not publish here.
cant believe you people disagreed with my last comment. this is what zelda should be doing. realism, or at least an attempt at it. maturity. i dont want to see any bitching about colourful graphics in the next zelda wii article that is published if thats the case. yay cute and cuddly zelda where all the flowers dance and the enemies skip, yay yay yay. idiots.
Realism is an art style, not the only acceptable one. I enjoy the art style of Skyward Sword, and Zelda shouldn't be confined to the same art style numerous developers seem to be obsessed with. Also, realism =/= maturity. Just like having an M rating doesn't mean a game is actually mature.
Zelda was and always will be a colorful game. Screw realism. Windwaker for the win =D And dont call others idiots because they dont agree with your point of view, it just makes you sound incompetent. Kinda ironic how Windwaker looked more alive( talking about the whole setting and characters) than any other zelda game to date.
Agreed with pcz. Because I understand where he's coming from. I was initially taken aback with SS's visuals, but after looking at hq vids I'm warm to them now, plus I'm sure with Nintendo's polish it will turn out to be quite stunning visually. But a part of me still does with they took Brawls Link and art style and ran with that. However, SS looks like what the NES Zelda was striving for lol. This style does work for a Zelda game, and the more I see it the more I want it. They do need to work on making the enemies more threatening though. But Wind Waker? Lame! lol (I know you love it though) And it was a good game, but I like TP better, visually and content wise. Also, this game looks fantastic, but I think Nintendo wants to go the route less traveled. How many realistic games do we need? I think diversity is key and variety the spice of life. So its cool to have options.
I'm excited! Looks awesome. And the graphics are too. :)
looks phenomenal, really impressed.
i really think nintendo has enough 'cute' bases covered with mario, kirby, mario kart, pokemon etc. we really don't need every single game they produce to be cutesy. dont complain if the next metroid will be given the cute treatment and samus will be some cute little character who skips through colourful worlds with lovely happy music playing. There are some franchises that should stick to their 'mature roots.' yes, zelda has had colourful graphics from the start, but that was only due to graphical limitations. the grass was ultraviolet green because there was no alternative! they try to pass the zelda series off as a serious rpg experience for 'core gamers,' but they present it in a cutesy way which i think is just wrong. its as wrong as making a realist mario game, or a super cute resident evil game. it would be so nice to sit infront of a zelda game and play something that feels grown up and intelligent. this is the impression that last story gives, you take it seriously.. you think 'hmm, interesting'. when i look at skyward sword i think 'yay (in child like tone)'
You're being stupid. A game isn't 'cutesy' just because it has a vibrant art style that isn't trying too hard to be grim-and-gritty. It's not black-and-white like that. A beautiful, mature (A word that's almost as misdefined in the video game industry as hardcore) game can arise from a naturally unrealistic art style, and you'd be a fool to disagree with that.
Its about damned time there was a trailer for this. Ive been waiting on ingame story information for a LONG time. That being said this game looks awesome. Imagine if it were on PS3 or 360. o.0 Looks like theres some MGS like moments in there. As well as some AC influences. Im pretty sure this will be a day one for me.
