[UPDATE] Nintendo bringing Japanese Wii role-playing game to North America later this year through a publishing partnership with Xseed Games.
The Last Story will be told in North America this summer, Nintendo confirmed this morning.
As part of its Nintendo Direct video presentation, Nintendo of America executive Reggie Fils-Aime revealed that Xseed Games will publish the Wii role-playing game in North America.
In June, Nintendo said that it had “no plans” to bring the game to North America. However, the game’s westward expansion began in November, when Nintendo announced that The Last Story would arrive in Europe on February 24.
[UPDATE] Xseed has confirmed that The Last Story will be out exclusively on the Wii this summer.
The latest game from Mistwalker and longtime Final Fantasy developer Hironobu Sakaguchi, The Last Story puts players in the shoes of Zael and a band of fellow mercenaries on a search for treasure. Set on Lazulis Island, the story follows Zael as he tries to find an escape from his mercenary past to become a true knight. Unique among RPGs, The Last Story features multiplayer modes in the form of co-op, deathmatch, and team deathmatch for up to six players.
