If it’s true that the dying gasps of a console produce the best games of its lifespan, then I can only assume the Wii is on its death bed. Just check out this gorgeous new trailer for Hironobu Sakaguchi’s latest RPG, The Last Story.

Hironobu Sakaguchi’s latest saga takes the Final Fantasy creator into the murky world of online multiplayer. Details of this rather daunting prospect have emerged at last, outlining the game’s two online modes.

AQ Interactive’s Wii horror title, Ju-On: The Grudge will make you jump a little. That’s according to Joystiq that sat down with the title at last week’s E3.
Also, for those unfamiliar with the game, there’s a trailer to hide under the covers to and a few screenshots to turn the stomach.
All through the link.

AQ has released a video for Feel, director Takashi Shimiz’s first foray into videogames, and to say it’s a bit creepy is an understatement.
Looks as though your trusty flashlight will be your only companion through a decrepit building full of ghostly apparitions and doors with bloody hand prints.
Still no exact details on the Wii game, but we do know it is based on The Grudge.

After the break you can see what appears to be the first English Blue Dragon Plus trailer for Nintendo DS.
It’s all very serious business with the promise of cataclysmic consequences if you put a foot wrong.
The cut-scenes also look very impressive for a DS game.
AQ Interactive’s Blue Dragon Plus is due out next month in NA. No Euro date as yet.

Happy New Year. We’re glad we shut down over Christmas. You didn’t miss a whole lot.
By far the most important story over the break was news that Free Radical cut its workforce by 140 to just 40.
The developer was confirmed as being in administration just before the Christmas holiday.
Speaking to 1UP, Cameron Gunn of administrators ReSolve Partners said, “We made around 140 employees redundant yesterday, effective 31 December (the date up to which they had been paid). We’re still trading on with the remaining 40 or so employees, have advertised the business for sale and have received some strong interest.”
News broke mid-December that staff had turned up for work only to be locked with a notice on the door telling them to adjourn to a nearby hotel.
Free Radical aside, other noteworthy Christmas news included confirmation that Mistwalker JRPG Cry On has been cancelled.
“AQI decided to cancel the project after analyzing the current market environment and forecasts for the future. We deeply apologize for troubling those who were awaiting its release,” said a company rep.
Cry On was apparently part of “Hironobu Sakaguchi’s triumvirate of Xbox 360 titles,” says this 1UP piece (the other two being Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey), and for those of you who don’t know, the game “was to be an action-RPG featuring a Nobuo Uematsu soundtrack [and] character designs by Kimihiko Fujisaka.”
Full round up below.

The official site for Blue Dragon Plus DS has launched which contains a brand new gameplay video.
Very little is known as to what the game is about, in fact absolutely nothing whatsoever apart from that it’s developed by Feelplus and Brownie Brown and published by AQ Interactive in Japan.
Video looks good but still reveals next to nothing as to how it will play. More info as we get it.
