A Year of One Hit Wonders -April - The Last Story
No April Fools joke this year. For the month of April, we will be playing The Last Story on the Wii. There is quite the backstory to this game, from the all star cast working on it, to the campaign to bring it to North America, to the fact that it isn't actually a Final Fantasy even though the title is a full synonym for it. As for the game itself, it follows the story of the main character Zael, and the band of mercenaries he associates with. The world around them is collapsing, and they converge upon Lazulis Island as a final stronghold against the land's decay. In standard fashion, they get caught up in a world ending/saving mega plot. The combat is real time, with up to six party members at a time. The player controls one character, but can issue orders to others. There is a bit of shooter action as well, as the player can enter into a targeting mode and there is a cover mechanic as well. This was essentially the swan song of the Nintendo Wii, so I hope everyone has a chance to join in and experience it.
