The Last Story's journey to North America was certainly a long one, but it looks like this tale has a happy ending. XSEED has announced that the celebrated Mistwalker RPG is now the most successful title in their eight-year history. Having sold nearly its entire first shipment, the game is now being reprinted and copies are going on sale for just $30.
If you've yet to pick up the game it sounds like now would be a great time to do so. While the second run won't include any of the extras that you'll find with originals, I can confirm that there are still a few "launch editions" out in the wild, as I picked one up at my local retailer just the other day.
I haven't delved too far into The Last Story yet, but I've enjoyed my limited time with the game thus far. After spending so long wondering whether or not it would actually make it to North America, it actually feels pretty surreal to hold the case in my hands and be able to play the thing. XSEED, once again, congratulations on the success and thank you for making this a reality.
