Nintendo announces the upcoming release of The Last Story™ – Limited Edition bundle including a SteelBook™ case, soundtrack CD and art booklet

18 January 2012 – Nintendo today announced an exclusive limited edition bundle for The Last Story, the latest action-packed RPG to come from Hironobu Sakaguchi, available exclusively on Wii™ across Europe from 24 February.

The limited edition The Last Story bundle will be available for pre-order while stocks last and features a copy of the game, an exclusive SteelBook™ cover decorated with beautiful artwork, and a The Elements Of The Last Story package which includes The Premium Soundtrack CD and The Illustrations art booklet. The CD features a 7-track selection of music from the game composed by Nobuo Uematsu who has also collaborated with Hironobu Sakaguchi on many of his previous iconic RPGs.

The Last Story adds a modern twist to the traditional RPG formula, offering a strategic, real-time combat system and allowing you to customise your character and weaponry. By mastering a mysterious ability called The Gathering you will be able to help the main protagonist Zael and his band of mercenaries complete the many missions and battle vast bosses by discovering their weak spots and using teamwork to bring them down.

Unlike many other RPGs, The Last Story not only features a story-driven single player campaign, but also two online multiplayer modes, Deathmatch and Co-op, allowing you to battle against or alongside up to five other people from across Europe. Online battles can yield rare weapons and items that can be carried over into the single player campaign.

The limited edition bundle of The Last Story, the latest action-based RPG from Hironobu Sakaguchi, launches across Europe exclusively for Wii on 24th February 2012. Each bundle contains an exclusive SteelBook™ cover, a copy of the game and a The Elements Of The Last Story package.
