Mistwalker boss Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of the Final Fantasy series, told us last year that his company was working on two projects: an iPhone game and a proper game. Could that second title be a Wii game?
Sure is. Nintendo sent out a press release overnight advertising the launch of a website for "The Last Story", a game we'd previously only heard about in trademark applications and financial results reporting.
There's precious little on the website except for a looping song and a log. Oh, and at the bottom, a bit that says "Nintendo/Mistwalker". Mistwalker has confirmed with Kotaku that, yes, this is the game Sakaguchi had been hyping up last year, so... time to get excited? Maybe not excited, not after the company's solid-if-unspectacular Xbox 360 output, but... intrigued, definitely.
