Internal Square magazine hints at final cancellation of Last Remnant PS3

Looky, looky.

It seems that Square Enix has finally put the final death nail into the proverbial coffin of the PS3 port of The Last Remnant.

According to Andriasang, the PS3 port isn’t mentioned in the TBA section of the company’s internal magazine.

We must stress though that this could be a mistake, as the Square site still has the game up for release. Same too for the weekly release calendar from Famitsu, according to AS.

If true, the first true Square game coming to the PS3 would be Final Fantasy XIII in a few weeks, followed up by Star Ocean: The Last Hope.

We’ll drop a mail to Square Enix and see what they say.

The game was first released back in November last year for the Xbox 360, with a PC release earlier this year

    Not really surprising given the reception that the other versions got.

    I got the PC version on the cheap – probably not cheap enough though.

    Game has some interesting ideas, the combat system sort of puts you in the position of a General where you give out general orders to groups of soldiers rather than micromanaging the actions and development of each character. The notion had promise but the flaws in the system make it extremely frustrating at times. The order selections are a bit too general, and sometimes you won’t be given the option to heal even when you really need it and there are healers in the party.

    There’s also no way to make your ‘unions’ work together effectively, like a classic military tactic would be to have one union perform the main thrust of the attack, have another 2 protect their flanks and maybe hold one in the rear for relief. Instead you pretty much have to make each unit act alone and hope you pick your targets in such a manner that you get flanked as little as possible.
