TGS 2007: The Last Remnant trailer wants this remnant to be your last

Okay, out of all the lame titles I’ve written today, that was the lamest. Anyway, the day of kick-arse trailers continues with The Last Remnant, a new RPG coming to both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. You can forget your Blue Dragon, this is the kind of thing I want to see more of when it comes to traditional Japanese role playing. Playing a decades old game mechanic in the new generation might be pretty rubbish, and in one sense it is, but we still want it, so who are the developers to do any different than deliver turn-based gaming to the masses?

You can bet that my monocle-wearing eye shall be paying close heed to The Last Remnant, as I pray for greatness. By all accounts, this should be a damn good one, provided the rather awesome looking story holds up.
