XSEED got the western publishing rights for The Last Story–Mistwalker RPG from Hironobu Sakaguchi–and it has announced that it is the most popular game they have ever published. XSEED is a small publisher so who knows what numbers it did, but such a news is great because of the attention the game is getting.
The game was released for the Wii and hit the US and EU regions late, due to some issues, but it seems according to this latest news, everything worked out well. Sakaguchi may have enough money now to start an iOS studio or do more surfing in Hawaii.
“The Last Story has been an amazing title for XSEED Games and it has become our most successful title to date,” said Ken Berry, Executive Vice President at XSEED Games.
“This is a must have title for RPG fans, and we’re looking forward to more players discovering the magic that lies in Lazulis Island.”
It’s quite impressive they have managed to create a game like that on the Wii, and when you take into account Xenoblade which was funded by Nintendo, we learn that brilliance is not limited to hardware, it depends on the developers.
