The Last Story Gets a Reprint and a Price Drop
XSEED stepped in to localize The Last Story, and surprisingly the game has turned out to be the publisher's most successful game yet. In celebration, they're issuing a reprint so those who didn't get the chance to pick it up the first time around can finally get their hands on it.
The Last Story was mega-hyped by core JRPG fans because of the man behind the game: Hironobu Sakaguchi. Sakaguchi is the creator of Final Fantasy and went on to help develop Vagrant Story and Parasite Eve, among other titles popular with long-term JRPG players.
XSEED will be shipping out new copies of The Last Story with an MSRP of $29.99 instead of the initial $39.99. New copies will be standalone, which means no pretty packaging or swag art book for those who pick them up. The remaining $39.99 copies are premium and hence will include the extra goodies -- but good luck finding them.
