NIck Tan: The Last Story confounds me once again. Remember that this is the Wii RPG that came out in Japan almost a year and a half ago to critical acclaim, and then for some reason skipped a North American release and launched in Australia and Europe in late February this year.
We're not completely certain why it's taken this long for the title, created by former executive producer for the Final Fantasy series Hironobu Sakaguchi and composed by Nobou Uematsu who shouldn't need any introuction, to arrive in the States. It was supposed to be July 10, or at least that was the target date. There was no official announcement, but the days kept rolling along as if tomorrow was going to be it—the veritable swan song for the Wii would be sung.
