Nintendo-published role-playing game The Last Story was developed by Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of Final Fantasy. Sakaguchi stopped doing FF games years ago, but you wouldn't know that by the cover of his latest game.
Japanese netizens are quick to point out that images on The Last Story's box art look incredibly similar to character art for Square Enix's most recent role-playing games, Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy XIII.
Of course, The Last Story was not developed by Square Enix, but rather, by Sakaguchi's own studio Mistwalker and AQ Interactive. And, of course, The Last Story sounds a bit like Final Fantasy.
The image of Last Story hero Elza looks very similar to Final Fantasy Versus XIII protagonist Noctis. Eagle eyes have pointed out similarities, going as far to even overlay the Elza image on top of the corresponding Noctics art.
What's more, netizens also noted that the image of Last Story heroine Stella looks incredibly similar to that of Final Fantasy XIII's Lightning, once again even overlaying the images to see how they match up.
Final Fantasy versus, indeed.
