The director and producer in the website are talking about Ruri Island, which is the setting for the game. The director talks about how the continent is surrounded by mountain ranges and the only accessible point being that island port. As such it is heavily fortified and a major point of defense. It sounds like the ruler of the island carries certain ambitions and seeks magic as a resource to rise in power.

Somehow even though the entire empire is suffering poverty and decay, the town of Ruri remains prosperous. It's implied that the source of the town's wealth is related to magic, and there's a strange power in it which begins to attract monsters towards it, and the fate of the island is soon to be changed forever.

The world of The Last Story is supposed to be one where metal resources are scarce, and Sakaguchi is trying to limit the amount of sci-fi influence on the world setting, and he wants players to be able to enjoy a smooth experience of exploring around Ruri Island, a place bathed in the abundance of radiant sunlight. Someone from Neogaf said this.

On the one hand, that makes me take this with a grain of salt. On the other hand, I hope it's true so we can further show the Resident Evil 5 people were idiots for thinking the Wii couldn't handle the game.

It was translated by a trusted member, so I wouldn't doubt it.

It looks very interesting.
BTW: I find it funny that g-value made this thread and he/she doesn't own a Wii.



                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Gorgeous. I really, really like that they're keeping it more medieval and less sci-fi.

I liked the artworks from the update before better - this looks more anime than I'd hoped. And reminds me of those more 'realistic' point&click adventures, like Broken Sword or Sherlock Holmes. 

Can't wait to see actual screens.

from what I read on neo, the town will be pretty big and you can get lost in it (no dead end streets and just "tunnels", created as a real town).
