Mistwalker in Final Stages of Development With Last Story

Posted by Trevor Chan

Hironobu Sakaguchi writes a tantalising blog entry and mentions what we're all waiting for

When you have the creator of the Final Fantasy series working on an RPG for the Wii, you know it's going to be big news. Since the announcement of Last Story's existence earlier in January, all the gaming community has to grab onto are a few pieces of concept artwork. That hasn't stopped gamers showing intrigue; in fact, it's probably fueled interest even more. That's what happens when you have a reputation like Sakaguchi does.

The latest entry on the Mistwalker blog has Sakaguchi writing about the effects of what appears to be jet lag and as a result, has been waking up at silly 'o clock in the morning. This restless sleep could be because of something else, though. He muses whether it is instead, to do with the fact that Last Story is "approaching completion".

AndriaSang notes that Sakaguchi usually makes his blog posts from Hawaii where he resides, but he has included a couple of photographs of the view from his window in Tokyo; which explains any jet lag he may be experiencing. Although the blog is in Japanese, the final sentence reads along the lines of "Finally, Last Story is in the final stages of development. I'm tense yet at ease."

If you can read Japanese, you should head over to the game's Web page for additional information. If you can't, there's music that you can soak in and various pieces of artwork to inspect too.

Awesome awesome awesome awesome. I'm so stoked for this, even though I know virtually nothing about it. Bring. It. On.

grenworthshero, I'd imagine that the similarity of the name is quite intentional.

That far along, eh? Poorly timed localization possibilities aside, we might see this before the end of the year. Meanwhile, Golden Sun DS isn't going to release within a year of its announcement. Methinks they did a better job with their timing of Last Story.

I hope it's an action-RPG. If not, I hope the battle system is extremely entertaining, with visible enemies on the "map", and no seperate battle screen.

I'm really looking forward to this. I loved Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey so this is bound to be good.
I'll be happy if it as traditional as those two. I love all the old final fantasy games pre FF7 so I've got high hopes for this.
