Default Sakaguchi is BACK on Final Fantasy! (IT'S A TRAP!)

Oh wait, did I say Final Fantasy? My mistake, I meant Last Story.

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". Turns out this is indeed 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 (the not-good Blue Dragon and the quite-good Lost Odyssey), but...intrigued, definitely.

However it all pans out, you have to love the name. "Last Story" is about as close as you can get to "Final Fantasy" without getting emails from lawyers.
Apparently when they started the Hadron Colider in Europe it sent the world into a bizarre retro universe where it's 1987 again. Boy oh boy, I can't wait to try Last Story 7 on Apple's iStation.

(and yes, that title is evil and misleading, your hopes were meant to be dashed by my sensationalism)

Who knows how things will work out. I'm thinking beautifully though.

MS, after all, made him dump one game. What MS should've been doing is padding out their Japanese studio support for 1st and 2nd party as well as making sure he had enough of a team to handle said previously mentioned release.

I'm sorry, this is too cruel so I had to make it slightly more accurate

No, Last Story is produced by Nintendo and they don't put out iPhone games (Kinda would be a conflict of interest what with the DS and all).
