Nintendo is partnering with Xseed Games to bring The Last Story to North America, it said today during an online broadcast.
The Last Story, directed by Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, has received rave reviews in Japan. Though the game will make its way to European shores this week, Nintendo had not yet announced a North American localisation, causing some fans to worry that they'd never see the Wii RPG.
Xseed Games, a small localisation house based in California, is best known for helping publish Falcom RPGs like The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky and the Ys series.
Last year, fans campaigned under the banner "Operation Rainfall" to get Nintendo to localise several RPGs including The Last Story. The campaign also fought for Xenoblade, which Nintendo will bring to the US this April.
Hear that, gamers? Get angry enough and you can make anything happen.
