Rumour: The Last Story to see Western release

Nintendo may be planning a Western release of gloriously beautiful Wii RPG, The Last Story.

A Nintendo representative apparently mentioned the localisation to JRPG Tribe at London’s MCM Expo.

Nintendo said in January it had “no plans” to bring the game over.

Booth reps aren’t always fully briefed (or cautioned against what not to say), so it’s a slim straw to grasp at – but Nintendo of America did register a domain for the game.

Hopefuls have fingers crossed for an E3 reveal during Nintendo’s press conference, somewhere in between the Project Cafe excitement. We’ve asked Nintendo for comment.

The Last Story is the most recent game from Mistwalker, the studio headed by ex-Final Fantasy boss, Hironobu Sakaguchi.
