Rumor: Europe to receive The Last Story

While in Paris to attend a concert performed by Masashi Hamauzu, the current composer of the Final Fantasy series, Mistwalker president Hironobu "The Gooch" Sakaguchi mentioned that the Wii action RPG The Last Story would definitely arrive in Europe. This info jives well with an earlier rumor from a Nintendo rep in London.

If legit, this means Europe has both Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story to fulfill their Wii JRPG desires. It also means that the States is still getting stiffed hardcore by Nintendo. Did we offend you in some way?

Japan has all but given up on the Wii, and no one in Europe gives a flying fudge about software unless it says "Just Dance" somewhere on the box. The only major region that still somewhat supports the damn platform is the US, yet Japan and Europe are where the most exciting projects turn up.

Nintendo reminds me of that kid in school whose ego is so gargantuan that he can't stand it when someone doesn't like him unconditionally. He could be the most popular guy in school, but he won't pay you a lick of attention until you stop paying him any attention. He's trying to gain favor with those who don't want to hang with him while ignoring those who do.

Stop being that guy, Nintendo!
