The Last Story impressed us with its debut trailer, and one very germane question was commonly found amongst the video’s reactions: Will this game ever leave Japan? Well, developer Mistwalker has promised that news of a Western release will arrive before the end of the year, which is already a pretty clear indication that it’ll definitely happen.
Mistwalker at first said that we’d find out about it by the end of the month, but that turned out to be a typo. So, we have no idea when Nintendo will say anything about a localized version of the game, but I certainly hope it’s sooner rather than later. I’m a big Mistwalker fan and have been waiting for The Last Story since it was revealed.
I’ve always been fairly confident of a Western release, and have been planning to riot if denied. Still, it’ll be good to get a solid confirmation, not to mention a possible release window.
