Please release "The Last Story" Worldwide sign now

I'll be honest, I've never seen you as a company that are regarded as innovators in the field of Japanese RPGs (JRPGs) but what you have shown of "The Last Story" for Wii is astounding.

If any of your staff has given any attention to the current state of the reception of the JRPG genre in North America and Europe you'll notice that their critical reception has fallen. The reason this has happened is mainly due to a lack of innovation and evolution in the genre, especially when compared to that of Western RPGs (WRPGs). There has not been a single critically acclaimed JRPG released on PS3, Xbox 360 or Wii in North America and Europe so far this console generation. Not a single JRPG that has shown consumers a new path being taken and a new game design philosophy being sought.

This period has ended thanks to one new JRPG. One that has not only drawn the attention of those who no longer find interest and see innovation in JRPGs, but has even enticed those that have never had any interest in the genre to begin with. That game is "The Last Story" for Wii.

These points are enough to end the petition with but I have to add further details from the heart of this gamer and others. The emotional aspect of this petition comes from knowing who directed "The Last Story". The name of that person is Hironobu Sakaguchi. Why should we care about this for any other reason than he created the FINAL FANTASY series? It's our sympathy for him and our admiration at the determination and aspiration he took when conceiving this game.

The following quote defines not only "The Last Story", but also a developer in tune with what modern gamers want and also trying to provide them with it:

"Gamers see [command-based battles] as old-fashioned, as too slow-paced, as unexciting. It just felt like that had to change. The way people enjoy games has changed, and I felt like if this didn't change as well, then it'll put a stop to the evolution of RPGs. I realized all too well that simply going through the motions again would be pointless."

The Last Story is not some typical JRPG, it's a game that has the potential to be the salvation of the genre in North America and Europe. It is the work of a man that is attempting to breath new life into JRPGs. All that's left for you to do is to localize it so it has the chance to achieve what it's truly capable.

Please, please, PLEASE release "The Last Story" Worldwide.
