The Last Story Coming to Wii in 2011

The man who created Final Fantasy, and left Squaresoft, has since been busy, and this is his latest creation – The Last Story, which will be available for the Wii in Japan in January 2011. Apparently the battles will happen in real-time, with an emphasis on the player manually making the character they control dodge. The main character will attack automatically, and must use a spell by pressing the “C” button on the nunchuck to draw enemies’ attention away from your mage(s) who are casting spells. The main character can take cover, and even shoot a bow, though I’m not sure if the bow requires the player to aim the Wii remote, or what.  Hopefully more details about the game will emerge soon. For now though, a new trailer needs to be watched. The trailer is in Japanese, so feel free to make up the most awesome story you’ve ever heard.
