The Last Story coming to Wii this year

Last summer, Nintendo fans banded together to form "Operation Rainfall," an effort to convince Nintendo to localize Wii-exclusive titles from Japan. The movement's first victory was Xenoblade Chronicles, a JRPG that will be arriving Stateside on April 6th. Today, Nintendo revealed a second game for localization--The Last Story.

The Last Story is an action RPG developed by Mistwalker, helmed by Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of the Final Fantasy series.

Unlike in Japan and Europe, however, The Last Story will not be localized by Nintendo. Instead, XSEED has picked up the rights to bring the game Stateside. Here's what the NOE-translated version looks like:

The game will be available in North America later this year--although a more specific date has yet to be announced. Given this year's launch of the Wii U, The Last Story could be one of the last big-budget games to hit the platform.
