European Launch Trailer Shows Off The Drama, Action Of The Last Story

We only just found out this week that Mistwalker RPG The Last Story will be coming to North America later this year, but it's already out in Europe as of today. Nintendo -- the game's Japanese and European publisher -- has released an English launch trailer that also gives us a good idea of what to expect from the U.S. release.

The video below begins with a message from the game's director, Hironobu Sakaguchi, who you may know as the creator of the Final Fantasy series. After that, we get a game trailer with a glimpse of the characters and the melodramatic situations they find themselves in as well as quick shots of what looks to be a deep but fast-paced battle system. Here's hoping that North American publisher XSeed keeps that slick British voice acting.

Check out the trailer for yourself below and stay tuned for more information on The Last Story as its U.S. release approaches.

  • Mod
    oh wii. how your still struggling to survive
  • Im not gonna lie the only thing i care about with this game is whens it hitting in stores in the us day 1 buy almost for sure.

  • Pirate-Wizards!
  • This game looks great, glad it's being brought over.

  • This game definitely looks like a must buy for anyone with a wii.

  • Has anyone else noticed that "Final Fantasy" and "The Last Story" basically mean the same thing?
  • Looks alright.

  • So glad I was too lazy to sell my Wii. Oh man, my spring is gonna be packed with rpg goodness. Mass Effect 3, Xenoblade Chronicles, Witcher 2, and now The Last Story! Too awesome.

  • I always preferred the first story...

  • Meh. I'm not too excited over this one. Besides the fun-looking gameplay, I'm not impressed. Bland settings, run-of-the-mill plot, and cookie-cutter characters; I think I'll pass.
  • There was a lot going on there. However, when the Final Fantasy creator develops The Last Story, you have to wonder how many iterations there'll be, and if the future holds more things which imply the end but never materialize.
  • that looks so much better than i recall i really hope i get the job i'm waiting for so i'll be able to buy it when its out  specially since i signed the petition

  • Ugh. I might have to buy a Wii just so I can play this, Xenoblade Chronicles and Skyward Sword. Good thing Wiis are cheap!
  • I am so glad this is being brought over, I can't wait.

  • It feels like The Last Story is the Final Fantasy game everybody was expecting after FFXII. I thought XIII and XIII-2 were decent games but they didn't really feel like the FF games that made me fall in love with the series. I couldn't be more excited that this game is coming to the states and we will get to play it. It may not be a FF game but it sure has all the familiar signs of one and that is pretty great if you ask me.
  • Ooooooooh yeah. I'm getting this game. :)

  • Looks pretty awesome.

  • That almost made me forget about Mass Effect 3, almost. Between this trailer and my experience with Lost Odyssey, this looks like Mistwalker is stealing JRPG dominance away from SquareEnix.

  • It’s been way to long sense I’ve played a game like this. My game stop better have this up for pre-order by now I’ve been bugging them all month ever sense I heard about the US release announcement. I like some American RPG's (Dragon age for example) but JRPG’s will still be my favorite.
