Just in case you’d forgotten, Square’s put a press release to remind everyone that The Last Remnant’s releasing tomorrow.

Famitsu gave the JRPG a very healthy 38/40, so for 360 owners in the audience this is probably well worth a look.

“Our goal with The Last Remnant was always to make a game that would be welcomed by a global audience,” said producer Nobuyuki Ueda.

“Our fans across Europe have been very supportive towards us, and we wanted to give them the opportunity to play the game at the same time as fans in Japan. We hope they’ll enjoy playing The Last Remnant as much as we have enjoyed making it.”

About THE LAST REMNANT

Story

In ancient times, mysterious artefacts referred to as Remnants were discovered all over the world. Offering incredible power, they soon came into the hands of the covetous few, and thus was the world’s delicate equilibrium shattered. The people were divided into those who ruled and those who were ruled over. War was inevitable. Our story begins a thousand years later…

Rush lives with his sister Irina on the secluded Eulam Island, a place far removed from the ceaseless battle for control over the Remnants which rages on the mainland. However, his peaceful life is shattered one day when he witnesses his sister’s abduction by a mysterious group of soldiers. He immediately sets off after them, ill-prepared for the evils of the outside world but determined to find his sister at any cost.

    Ah crap!

    Forgot it was tomorrow!

    I thought if I got it tomorrow, I wouldn’t have to wait until Friday to get it but I forgot the worldwide date.

    Will make an emergency dash into town tonight with COD and see if I can get The Last Remnant like I did with Fable II and Far Cry 2.
