The Last Story is the only box where the XSEED logo was changed, due to a request from Sakaguchi
XSEED Games is turning 15 years old this year. To celebrate, the company has been sharing some fun facts on social media.
One of these facts concerns the Wii RPG The Last Story. It was published by XSEED in North America, and was the only time the company’s logo changed on a boxart. Director Hironobu Sakaguchi actually gave the request since he felt the red logo clashed with the gray color on the front. XSEED, of course, was more than happy to oblige.
The Last Story originally released on Wii in Japan in January 2011. It wouldn’t reach North America until August 2012. While Nintendo published the game in Europe and Japan, XSEED only handled publishing duties in North America.
