Retailers Leak The Last Story Limited Edition

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Swiss retailer breaks cover

It appears that Nintendo of Europe is preparing a limited edition release for upcoming Japanese RPG The Last Story, due for release on 24th February. Initial rumours started to spread earlier this week, but images of the box art and packaging have since begun to surface.

According to a Swiss retailer this release will include premium steelbook packaging, an art booklet and a soundtrack CD. At the time of writing, this limited edition is not appearing on major UK retailer websites, but Siliconera has the box for you to look at anyway.

This title was produced with Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi at the helm in what could be his last major game release. With that and the title's hype in mind, would you pay extra for this collector's edition?

Since the game gods finally heard our prayers, one would be stupid NOT to buy one of these on day 1. I'm counting the days my friends...

^ They may as well commit to US/Canada release ASAP, as the amount of piracy that's blighted Xenoblade as a consequence of its late arrival is a total disgrace.

Looking good, but I HATE that the German rating has to ruin these boxes for all of Europe. Same thing with Skyward Sword, why can't they make it the same size as Pegi, it's not like it's too small to notice...

@9: i agree!!! those German ratings are awful and ruin every boxart. Why oh why do they have to be so big and on the front of the box? Nobody cares about them anyway.

Anyway: i will certainly buy this, if only because it will be an instant collectable.

If it isn't more than roughly 70 € this will be very hard to resist. So beautiful. :*
And believe me people, i feel ashamed that the country i'm living is responsible for these ugly overprints. :|

It's so impossible that it is not coming to the whole europe but well, even if that happens, I live on the border :D

You folks think pandora's tower will be the same?

I have xeno and zelda's baddonkey editions, I hope I can get this one as well :)

Apparently the soundtrack CD only has 7 songs from the game on it (I heard this on Gonintendo) which is disappointing but it still looks like a pretty good collector's edition and the boxart is great!

Another good reason to get this! Interesting to see if this comes to the U.S.? Gamestop, hello? You working with Nintendo of America to bring this over too?

For UK consumers, an email reply from ShopTo.net:

"At the moment we have not heard from the publishers but as soon as we do we will supply the information on the website. This may just be limited to certain retailers"

Well, we can only hope right now :)

@31 At this point, just waiting for Nintendo to ANNOUNCE that any version of The Last Story is heading to NA seems too much to ask for :P

Day one if and when it makes it to North America. They could be charging 80 usd for this and I'd still buy it.
