Another Wii RPG that will not sell that well in Japan and will not make cost effective sense to localize outside the country.  Many of the same "innovative gameplay" and "awesome looking game" have been tossed around with with Xenoblade, 130k after 7 or 8 weeks I pretty sure The Last Story will follow the same line.

Mistwalker will make the difference in this case, hopefully. Plus the fact that the gameplay looks to be quite receptive towards Western markets (hell, it almost reminds me of Fallout 3's system, to a degree)


I agree, I don't think the two games are that comparable largely because Last Story has a big name behind it that should help it get a good sight more sales than Xenoblade did.  Is Xenoblade assumed to not be coming to the states anymore?  I was still under the assumption that it would come over at some point next year.

Actually Xenoblade was listed as TBA by NOA recently so its definetely coming over.

Either way the past few months make Xenoblade seem more attractive than The Last Story to me.



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

Xenoblade and The Last Story are both trademarked in NA so that's the biggest sign of localization

In Japan these days, unless you are a Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Persona, Monster Hunter or another big name RPG franchise, 130k are actually respectable numbers.

That's what I thought. Actually, a bit over that, like 250.000 copies.

Nintendo is to blame because anything less than 3M worldwide is a failure.

Ah, so the game uses a 'Pointer,' not the pointer. At least that's cleared up.

And it's cute that they wrote the tanking skill into the story. Sounds like an MSORPG (Massive Single-player Offline Role Playing Game).

I wonder if the new screens will quiet some of those that kept complaing about it not having color.
