    The Last Story Trailer Shows Off Some Gameplay

    The Last Story is set to arrive on European shelves next week. Nintendo has released this new trailer giving RPGamers in the region an insight into some of the gameplay features they can expect to see.

    Looks fairly impressive. Thinking about importing it.
    What I have seen and done to achieve my position defies belief. What I am capable of and will be party to in order to retain it would chill your soul.

    Yeah probably worth waiting till after Xenoblade comes out to see if it changes NoA's minds

    Never buy a game published by D3 Publisher that is not WKCII. They cheated on their fans by releasing a game that they didn't support not even for a year and they released a rushed translation.

    This prompted me to order it as well. I was on the fence.

    I ordered the limited edition from Zavvi. Hopefully it will go through. Says they don't ship electronic stuff internationally, does that include games?

    Not sure what to do with this one. The importer impressions I've read indicate this game is only above average. They were spot on about Xenoblade being amazing, so I have to think they have some credence with The Last Story as well. Furthermore, I'm going to have Kingdoms of Amalur and Devil Survivor 2 to play, as well as Graces all within a short time span, so that would leave little room for TLS.

    On the other hand, it does look appealing, and Xenoblade was almost impossible to find a short while after the PAL release. I remember seeing the only copies of XB going for over $100 dollars on Ebay, which makes me think I'll have a hard time getting TLS if Nintendo skips out on an American release.

    Unless you just have to have it right away, or are in the UK, give it until the end of the week. I am.

    Would expect them to inform you at checkout if they wouldn't be able to ship it. From the wording it sounds like it means stuff that runs electronically, e.g. consoles, MP3 players, etc. rather than games but can't be 100% on that.

    I'm pretty sure a number of people successfully ordered Xenoblade from Zavvi, so you should be good. Don't expect it to arrive quickly, however.

    I'm just sad that all those Wii games lately don't have a real battle system anymore and just make you fight onscreen like in an action adventure.

    I'm very excited to try out this battle system. Looks great, as I enjoy a nice change of pace.

    Hmmm, well I didn't really quit Xenoblade because of the battle system, but rather because it has too many boring sidequests, so I guess I should give this one a try as well.

    This battle system looks nothing like Xenoblade's, other than both systems occuring on the main screen (which I generally prefer anyway). Looks pretty neat, though. As for Xenoblade's side quests, they're completely optional. That's the cool thing about the game. You can be a completionist, or you can just go through the main story. It's totally up to you.

    Yeah, that's the difference between us. For me it's important that the battles are on a separate screen. They can be round based or action or whatever, but it needs to be a separated battle system. A battle system like in Chrono Trigger and Parasite Eve is also okay, while on the main screen, it still has its own battle system (gameplay changes depending on whether you are in a battle or outside).

    So I'm very dissatisfied that most RPGs seem to be go this way now. I'd rather have another Lost Odyssey then.

    I ordered Xeno from PLAY.UK and that took a long time to arrive. About three weeks. That would actually be fine with TLS since I have Mass Effect 3 to play.

    I'm still holding off for a NA announcement myself. I can see it happening.

    I'll just sit back and hope it's announced for the US. Looks good though.
