The Wii has slowly become the console that hosts some of the best Japanese role playing games this generation. First, we’ve had the astonishing Xenoblade Chronicles and now we’ve been gifted with the excellent The Last Story. If you’re at all interested in role playing games then The Last Story is something you’ll undoubtedly cherish and look back on fondly in later years.
The Last Story is an extremely accessible Japanese RPG that’s tailored to newcomers, but also holds its own with experienced players of the genre. From customisation, to the battle system, everything feels simple and easy to manage. The game fits in with the Wii ethos of providing gameplay that will appeal to a wide audience, which is something JRPG’s in general seem to fail to do. 9/10
