The Last Story is the latest title from Mistwalker, the Japanese developer founded by none other than Sakaguchi Hironobu, the creator of Final Fantasy. Hironobu left Square before they became Square Enix and set up Mistwalker with the help of Microsoft which led to two Xbox 360 exclusives, Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey. Neither of these titles hit the kind of heights that the Final Fantasy series had achieved, and though strongly reminiscent of his previous work, they lacked the same polish. Expectations were understandably mixed when Mistwalker announced The Last Story and not least because of the fact it was a Wii title. With the Wii’s poor reputation among the hard core gaming community, it was surely a brave and possibly rash move. But has it paid off?
