Last Remnant PC emerges in spring

Square Enix's original RPG arrives with new content on Games for Windows next year; PS3 edition remains TBA.


Square Enix's The Last Remnant was initially announced back in May 2007 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Unbeknownst to the public at large, however, the publisher was also prepping a PC edition of the game. With the PS3 game still bearing a "to be announced" release window, Square Enix said today that The Last Remnant will see a Games for Windows release in North America and PAL regions in spring 2009.

The Xbox 360 edition of The Last Remnant, released on November 20, failed to capture critics in the way that Square Enix may have hoped. However, it was the game's underwhelming performance issues, and not the core game, that drew the lion's share of critics' ire.

According to Square Enix, the PC release of The Last Remnant will expand on the Xbox 360 game with "features previously not available." Unfortunately, the publisher did not delve into what these features may be.

Square Enix also did not indicate whether the PC release would benefit from the upcoming downloadable content packs slated for the Xbox 360 game. Beginning this month, the publisher plans to roll out a series of free add-ons for the Xbox 360 edition, as well as three premium tactical formations.
