The Last Story director Hironobu Sakaguchi has said the game will not use “shake controls,” adding that it’s not “possible” for the game to appear on any other platform.

The developer was taking time out on Twitter to give fans some key facts about the game. 

Speaking specifically regarding The Last Story coming to any other platform, Sakaguchi said, “The Last Story appearing on another platform isn’t possible because our team worked so closely with Nintendo.”

There was also some interesting information which came out of Sakaguchi’s tweets, such as being able to control the camera using the right stick, and also being able to set up your name in multiplayer using up to eight alphabetic characters.

You can check out a breakdown of information from his tweets over at Andriasang.

The Last Story is the seventh release from Sakaguchi’s Mistwalker studio following his departure from Square Enix in 2004. It releases on Wii in Japan on January 27.

There are “no plans” for a western release as yet.
