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.

I don't understand why people prefer japanese dub over the english dub. It just doesn't make any sense. They would always say the japanese voice actor is better but I find that quite stupid. For example, when someone watches a cutscene with japanese dub and with english sub, 90% of the time our eyes will focus on the subtitles, with the rest of their sight just rarely glancing on what's happening in the scene. Yet they want to fully see the cutscene and listen to the japanese dub? Our brains cannot focus on the subtitles, fully watching the scenes, and enjoy the japanese dub at the same time, you will be fucking confused. That's why I prefer the english dub cause I can turn of the sub and fully enjoy watching the scene and see them talk.
