    Nintendo of America has been officially issued a trademark for The Last Story, one of the missing Wii games that the company said it had no plans to bring to the US.

    Nintendo filed for the trademark back in January 2010, but only received it this week. This doesn't mean that the company will release the game, but it could spark hope in those fans still holding out on the Mistwalker RPG.

    The game is still on track for a 2012 release in Europe.[/p]

    Now this doesn't mean too much, but I at least wanted to give US hopefuls something to...hope for.

    Note the date.

    That's 18 months ago. Maybe their plans were different before they decided to tumble the Wii into an early grave.

    You may want to get that check if it cross. [​IMG]

    I hope we get the game. There are really no reasons why we shouldn't get it.

    I think Nintendo MAY have just Konami's standards in trolling.

    DAMN YOU REBORN TENGU

    It's a good game, but not as good as people seem to think it is, at least in my opinion.
    I don't really see it selling that well the in US.

    Companies trademark titles and never do anything with them ever. Namco did that with Tales of VS. And look where that took them.

    Dick move Nintendo.

    It could have been a plan they had in the past, and have since decided against it, however the trademark was accepted recently.
