The Last Story XSEED'S Most Successful Launch Ever, New Reprint Only $30

Remember how Nintendo wasn't going to release The Last Story in the United States, even though it's an awesome role-playing game and the Wii was barren for two whole years? Remember how XSEED came in and scored a publishing dealjust by asking for the game late last year?

Well it looks like XSEED made the right move. The Last Story sold out at launchXSEED VP Ken Berry said in a press release today that it was their "most successful title to date"and now they're re-printing it for the awesome price of $30. (This version won't include any of the trimmings that the last one had, like the fancy artbook.)

The Last Story's not up on digital stores yet, but it should be soon. XSEED says the game should arrive on store shelves within the next few days.

It's an awesome game, by the way. You can play it on your fancy new Wii U, too, and I hear the resolution upscales, although I haven't had the chance to try that yet. Have you? Let me know below.Kotaku

This is awesome. Anyone who whines and b*tches about the lack of quality RPGs today, Japanese or otherwise, needs to pick this up, along with Xenoblade, pronto.

Oh crap I forgot about this game. Maybe I ask this for xmas or something.

Hope this pushes Mistwalker to go all out with a sequel.
TLS was by no means perfect, had alot of flaws but so much potential. It was a great game overall.
Sakaguchi has something here. With some tweaks and improvements here and there he could have something of a new FF on his hands.

What country do you live in..? It's 30-40 dollars at gamestop and other retailers in the U.S., and is similarly priced on UK game sites :?

#11 Posted by madsnakehhh (14268 posts) -

It is a pretty good game, its good to see it got solid sales and anyone who haven't played should give it a chance despite the flaws of the game.

Even in Mexico is not that expensive, still on the 50$ mark.

So the game did well? Looks like this might push Nintendo a bit more with Wii U.
#14 Posted by Lucky_Krystal (1730 posts) -

That's awesome.

Makes me wish I had a damn Wii to play it on. Man, who'd have thought the Wii would get 3 awesome JRPGS. I'm sad. :(

Well it's time to put off buying this game, great price. I need to get Xenoblade too :|

I contributed to those sales.

And that art books is gorgeous.

#21 Posted by nintendofreak_2 (25896 posts) -

Good to see the game doing well. It's a fantastic game and I'm interested in some sort of successor. The battle system, world, and everything about the game is too good to only have one go.

At $30 you definitely can't go wrong with this game. There's literally no reason not to buy it if you have a Wii. I'm interested in seeing at how it plays on the Wii U, my only real issue with the game was those terrible frame rate drops and I would expect the Wii U to be able to handle the game with no issues at all.

I bought it ...used (because Gamestop didn't have any new copies left). The arts are awesome. The combat is great (for an RPG standard) certainly better than Xenoblade. Xenoblade got higher ratings but I didn't like it.

#23 Posted by m_machine024 (14903 posts) -

Bought it and enjoyed it.

#24 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11700 posts) -

Is Xenoblade still available at Gamestop? It's not available online and I was thinking about getting it.

#25 Posted by TheSacredFlame (324 posts) -

It's good to know that I contributed to something.

Maybe Nintendo will start selling Wii games on the Wii U's shop like Microsoft currently does with Xbox games on the 360's shop.

Given Xseed's status as a publisher, maybe they know something about Nintendo's plans with the Wii U shop.

Either he misspoke or he slipped and let the cat out of the bag about Nintendo's future plans.

I contributed.Not as good as Xenoblade but still great.

I wish the CD was longer but it's still awesome.

Now for that Pandora's Tower release, Nintendo >.>

Operation Rainfall from beyond the grave.

#31 Posted by WreckEm711 (6922 posts) -

Glad it did well, Xenoblade and TLS are both great games, though TLS is a bit of a flawed gem. Hopefully their success will prompt NOA to be a bit more forthcoming with their titles in Japan.

#32 Posted by SonicNextGen2 (3432 posts) -
And people say the Wii has no good games.
#33 Posted by bobcheeseball (9307 posts) -
I can't believe Rainfall actually worked
#34 Posted by AznbkdX (3136 posts) -

Oh snap... that says 30 bucks!

Might as well get my hands on it then. :D

I believe the publishers for XSEED said that Rainfall had little impact in their decision to approach Nintendo for the publishing rights. So no, Rainfall didn't do that much.
