    It has been revealed that The Last Story, an RPG title for the Wii from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, will be released as a stand-alone title, as well as a special bundle with the Classic Controller, and as a bundle with the Wii console itself.

    Amazon.co.jp gave early notice today of a bonus item for The Last Story. But it turns out that this was just the start of Nintendo's plans for the upcoming RPG from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi.

    The game's official site was updated today with final release details for the game. The game will be released on its own for ¥6,800 and as part of a newly announced "Special Pack" bundle that includes a white Wii, a white Classic Controller Pro. This bundle will run ¥25,800.

    The specifications for the game are listed as:

    Genre: RPG
    Player Count: 1 (during online play, 2 - 6)
    Save Data Count: 16
    Compatible Controllers: Wiimote + Nunchuck, Classic Controller Pro
    As detailed in the Amazon leak earlier, Nintendo is including a bonus item with the game. All early buyers will get "Elements of Last Story," a pairing of a mini soundtrack CD and visual book. The item is shown to the right in the above image.

    Joining the product information, Nintendo gave the official site a big refresh today. The site has a new interface, new music, new screenshots and new character introductions.

    Many of the new screens at the site were shared in Jump and Famitsu over the past few weeks, so those without access to the magazines should take a look.

    The site is also host to the game's latest Iwata Asks column, which reveals the game's mystery composer [for the in-game soundtrack] to be Nobuo Uematsu.[/p]

    The screen shots on the games web site look amazing. Hopefully it gets localized.

    I bet those are just screens of the FMV sequences lol.
    Though theres little BG so could be possible sorta.
    I highly doubt it but I'll be more than happy to be surprised and I'm hoping for it.

    Gonna have to try this one out when its released just to see it with my own eyes.

    I'm pretty sure it's been confirmed it isn't FMV.
    It's just that this game looks extremely good!

    It's a Square Enix title yeah? Most of their titles get localized, so here's hope.

    No, it's made by Mistwalker, a company formed by Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of Final Fantasy, when he left Square some years ago.

    Nope, it's by Mistwalker, which was created by former FF creators. I believe there is just one Mistwalker games that never came over.

    We may get it it or we may not.
    The name HAS been trademarked in America and Europe and Mistwalker said we should expect localization news by the end of the year.

    Ah, thanks for the correction you two.

    Either way, this RPG looks like it'll be popular enough for a localization.
    Could be wrong though; here's to wishin'.

    Well considering that the game's getting its own Wii bundle, it'll most definitely be popular in Japan, and probably enough to garner an international release. We'll be hearing about localisation news for North America and PAL areas before the end of the year if Nintendo keeps true to their word.

    If only I didn't have a Wii, I would totally get this if it came to America.

    My Wii is dying too. [​IMG]
