The Last Story, a formerly Japan-only RPG game, is coming to North America. The Wii-exclusive will be on store shelves this year, so before 2013 starts, Wii gamers will have an ambitious JRPG to mess around with. XSEED games will be doing the U.S. development.
The Last Story enjoyed rave reviews in Japan, earning a 9/10 from Famitsu, and topped sales charts when it was released. Whether its complex story line and unique combat and spell-casting mechanics will translate to Western audiences remains to be seen, but you should definitely keep The Last Story on your "Watch" list.
