Final Fantasy Creator's Wii RPG Finally Headed to North America

Nintendo is partnering with publisher Xseed Games to bring Wii RPG The Last Story to North America this summer, 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 localization, causing some fans to worry that they'd never see the Wii RPG.

Xseed Games, a small localization 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 summer, fans campaigned under the banner "Operation Rainfall" to get Nintendo to localize several RPGs including The Last Story. The campaign also fought for Xenoblade, which Nintendo will bring to the U.S. this April.

Hear that, gamers? Get angry enough and you can make anything happen.
