The Last Story western release news by end of the year

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.
