"No shaking remote control. Menu option is switched automatically by pressing classic controller. Camera operation using right analog stick is reversed by switching to reverse camera option," said Mistwalker in a Tweet posted just today. "I wanted the characters to speak a lot while traveling but didn't want over dramatic. That's why we ask well-qualified voice actors."
Now don't get me wrong -- I am not saying this proves that The Last Story is definitely coming West. But it does at least indicate that those involved with the game are registering a keen Western interest. I see no reason to Tweet English details about a game if there's no chance in Hell that it will leave Japan.
I realize that, to some, I will come across as a madman looking for reasons to still believe in some crackpot theory, but it seems to me that building hype in front of an English-speaking audience is a very good sign. Perhaps it means nothing, but I think it's fairly reasonable to assume that the localization situation does not end with Nintendo of America's rather weak half-denial.
