XSEED has released a ton of games in its history – around fifty titles or so. Out of the entire selection, you may be surprised to hear that The Last Story is the company’s most-successful title ever. That news comes straight from the direct source – XSEED itself.
That’s very encouraging considering the Wii was a “dying console” when The Last Story finally made it to North America. It also bodes well for XSEED’s relationship with Nintendo. We don’t know how many copies The Last Story sold, but XSEED must be pleased.
The official news about the announcement is posted below.
Highly Acclaimed Action RPG Title from Legendary Game Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi Most Successful Title in Publisher’s History
XSEED Games, an independent-minded publisher, is pleased to celebrate the success of its hit action RPG, The Last Story, by announcing that it is releasing an all-new standalone version of the Wii™ exclusive, which started shipping today to select retailers throughout North America at an MSRP of $29.99. In addition to this new standalone game package, any remaining copies of the premium launch units at retailers, which included a bonus 44-page softcover art book packaged together with the game in a custom outer box, are now available for $39.99.
“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.”
Developed by legendary game creator Hironobu Sakaguchi and his studio MISTWALKER in conjunction with Nintendo, The Last Story has enjoyed global praise from critics and fans for its brilliance in storytelling, character interaction, immersive audio and music, cover-based action combat and mystical setting.
