NOOOO! I just beat the Last Story on my Wii U!

iamtehpwn2482d ago

Lost Odyssey Remastered + Lost Odyssey 2 for Ps4.
Personally, that's what I wanna see more than anything from Mistwalker.

-Foxtrot2482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )

They'd sell a lot

I know this guy had beef with Sony in the past but things have changed, new people are in charge.

DevilOgreFish2482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )

"Asked about which consoles he’s planning to work on, Sakaguchi-san clarified that he has no idea yet. It could be PC, Xbox, Playstation or something else."

some PC love would be super nice, but if he want's to keep it old school i'll respect that.

Big_Game_Hunters2482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )

I would be surprised if mistwalker made a noncellphone game for anything other than 3DS or maybe vita at this point.
If it was exclusive to a console it would very likely be wiiu as nintendo owns the last story ip and the wiiu outsells PS4 weekly in japan,.

vishmarx2482d ago (Edited 2482d ago )

Not gonna happen, he hates sony and now makes mobile games
holy crap if true!!!!!
remember the famitsu guy saying a ps announcement that will piss off people!!

IF this guy is back with SONY then goddamn ps4 has already won the gen

bouzebbal2481d ago

The Last Story on PS4? now this is something i would LOVE to see happen!
TGS is shaping up to be interesting!

MrSwankSinatra2481d ago

That won't happen, microsoft owns the lost odyssey ip unfortunantly.

gaffyh2481d ago

I don't even care if it's for PS4, just make Lost Odyssey 2, it might be the only thing that gets me to buy an Xbox One at this rate.

hkgamer2481d ago

im not 100% sure, but i think blue dragon and lost odyssey was published by ms. so maybe a port/remaster for a sony device is impossible. laststory was published by nintendo so i think thats gonna be impossible aswell.

lost odyssey 2 would be great, loved the mangaka, loved the short stories, battle mechanics may have been basic but good enough. main story was a let down thoughand some characters seemed very ff like.

i would love the mangaka to make character designs for another game, but seeing as how he is sick a lot recently i doubt he has time.


sadly i have a 360 just for this game. i mean i bought console within launch window but never really touched it until i bought this game. never touched my 360 after.

kingdom182481d ago (Edited 2481d ago )

I'd freakin' love that, but I think MS owns the dang IP. Hopefully at least they'll try to do something with it. *Hmm maybe the only reason MS allowed a 3DS Blue Dragon game, while owning it, they could profit from its sales on the 3DS when they didn't have any intention to use it and its not on a competing platform.

EverydayGuy2481d ago

@foxtrot his beef was with Ken Kutaragi not Sony.

NukaCola2481d ago

Wish Infinite Undiscovery comes to PS4. I know its TriAce, not Mystwalker but stil... I heard it was a decent game. Any thoughts on it?

BLuTheSecond2481d ago

Unfortunately Lost Odyssey was published by MS.

For a second i confused this with the last remnant. Needless to say i was more than a little bewildered. But the last story now thats good :)

JacketsNest1012482d ago

And it is so epically good, isn't it?

Magicite2482d ago

bring it! bring all this goodness to PS4, please!

El_Assenso2481d ago

The Last Story was a stunning game on the Wii! Made by the creator of Final Fantasy, it would be amazing to play it on the PS4. Would love for him to make a new JRPG game on the PS4!

From the article, quote:
"Asked if there was a chance to see a new The Last Story game , Sakaguchi-san answered in English “Ok, yeah, you talk to Nintendo.”

Then the moderator of the panel asked who in the audience would want to see a sequel of The Last Story on Wii U, and while the audience cheered and applauded, Sakaguchi-san added, again in English, “And maybe PlayStation 4 too?”

Sakaguchi-san was laughing, so he was most probably just teasing the audience, but I can’t say I wouldn’t like to see something like that happen."


I'd kiss the man if he made a Last Story sequel and brought it to the Wii U.
It, Xenoblade Chronicles, and Pandora's Tower were three of the greatest games to ever grace any console, and more players should have experienced them.

Also, he's looking forward to the N3DS, so maaaaybe a new Final Fantasy game will hit it eventually?
Fingers crossed; it's been too long.

animegamingnerd2482d ago

he is no longer at Square Enix so he has nothing to do the Final Fantasy series anymore and maybe if the Xenoblade port does well i can see Mistwalker and Nintendo bring The Last Story to the N3DS

JacketsNest1012482d ago

I would die and go to video game heaven if he made a Last Story sequel on Wii U/PS4. Who cares what system it's on? Just make the game, Sakaguchi-san! I don't even own a PS4 yet and I would buy the system for that.

N4g_null2481d ago

Sony just sold their shares to square and Sakaguchi-san is hinting at a new handheld. If it is a version of the wiiu(the new handheld) then his game would work on the wiiu by default.

After seeing the new Zelda I think he might want to go where the true Jrpg guys are. PS4 is for western rpgs.

remixx1162481d ago (Edited 2481d ago )

The true jrpg guys? Sony has had just as many great jrpgs as nintendo since it released the first playstation.

N4g_null2481d ago (Edited 2481d ago )

How many did sony actually make.... um yeah. Also where are all those jrpgs for the ps4?

_-EDMIX-_2481d ago

? LOL! Your post makes little sense.

Sakaguchi hasn't worked for square for some time. I don't know what that has to do with anything.

True RPGs? Sorry buddy but Nintendo systems have been the LAST PLACE you want to look for JRPGS.

Have you seen the damn PS3's line up of JRPGS? GOOD LORD it DESTROYS EVERY SYSTEM!

JRPGS tend to come late in generations due to the high install base, most on PS systems. ie Why you don't see Persona 5 on PS4.

Cause you damn well didn't see Persona 3 launch on PS3.

It came late in the PS2 era along with Persona 4.

Its just how Japan does games.

and fyi he is going to go where the install base is, he has zero ode to one company or the other for gods sake he made a 360 RPG.

Zero-One2481d ago

The fuck is up wit your immature ass? Do you really know THAT little about Playstation's history.

Godmars2902482d ago

Thing is, if he were to announce Last Story for the PS4, this TGS would be it.

An attempt to test the waters with an old game for further support.

Godmars2902482d ago

Which they may have relinquished.

Like I said: if it happens, it'll be announce this TGS.

vishmarx2482d ago

they didnt even self publish it in west.
can just as easily be sold.
didnt ms have blue dragon which came to 3ds

stragomccloud2482d ago

That's like asking Zelda to come to PS4.

Nano_predator2481d ago (Edited 2481d ago )

This rumor might disappoint you , But Nintendo will share the Zelda IP with Sony in the near future

ritsuka6662482d ago

Not going happen cause this game is from Nintendo IP. Sorry PS4.

kingdom182481d ago

Hmmm, don't know, its not under the list of Nintendo owned IPs.

_-EDMIX-_2481d ago

Link? I'm pretty sure Nintendo doesn't own the IP of this game.

Mind you...they merely published the game.

Published doesn't = IP.

Unless you have some solid facts, this game can end up anywhere Mistwalker wants it to.

Segata2481d ago

vishmarx MS allowed Blue Dragon sequels on DS not 3DS as DS was not a conflict of interest. Nintendo of America allowed Xseed to publish TLS in the US. Nintendo still has full rights to TLS. It's also the reason he says to ask Nintendo. TLS is coming to PS4 as much as Bloodborne is coming to Wii U.

I would poop my pants if the last story goes to ps4!! Wii U would be nice too but I'd like to see dem next gen grafix. Loved the first one. Come on Sakaguchi-san make it happen! I'd like to see one of his games on playstation again...
