Report – Sakaguchi says Last Story western localisation is inbound

Tuesday, 31st May 2011 06:41 GMT By Johnny Cullen

LiveWii‘s reporting that Mistwalker’s Hironobu Sakaguchi confirmed to French gaming press recently that The Last Story will be localised for Europe.

Sakaguchi apparently made the comments in Paris during a recent visit.

The Last Story released back at the start of the year for Wii in Japan, but a western localisation has been asked for by Mistwalker fans since the RPG launched.

Nintendo said to VG247 in January that it had “no plans” to localise the game at the time.

It’s not the first time within the past 24 hours a western release has been mentioned, though. During MCM Expo this past weekend in London, a Nintendo UK rep apparently said that a localisation was coming.

If this is happening, expect a full formal announcement at E3 next week.

Thanks, GoNintendo.

    i have a feeling Nintendo will pull off a GC Zelda Twilight Princess lame trick again with this,Xenoblade and Skyward sword.
    meaning very limited amount of copies for the Wii in order to push forward project “Cafe” which these will be re-released as cafe’s launch titles

    Best news of the day for me (and it’s just started).

    This game will forseeably be the last time I get my Wii out.

    Ah, crap, just realised how that sounded :/

    I’d rather hope that the localisation is almost done if they’re going to do it. It’s somewhat late in the day for niche Wii software now.
