Though some denounce the Japanese role-playing genre as having fallen from grace, The Last Story stands tall as a shining beacon that exemplifies the very best of what it can achieve.
A heartwarming tale of love, friendship and betrayal proves a resoundingly storytelling experience, accompanied by an inventive battle system that is as accessible as it is immersive to behold. One can only hope that The Last Story won’t indeed be Mistwalker or Hironobu Sakaguchi’s last to grace a Nintendo platform, as the craftsmanship on display here will be sorely missed. 9/10
