    Some time last year, Nintendo filed a trademark or something for...well, back then, it was just something. The only hint of what it could be was that it was titled The Last Story. We now know what it is...or rather have an idea of what it is.

    The Last Story will be a collaboration between Nintendo and Mistwalker, the studio owned by Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, who's previous works under this studio include Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon . Apparently, this is to be a new form of RPG, and will revolve around "universal feelings held by people," whatever that means.

    But from what we can see from the title and image, it's not hard to speculate that this may end up to be somewhat similar to Final Fantasy. The name shares a similarity, and the situation is also somewhat similar to when Final Fantasy was released. In any case, a developer blog is expected sometime in March. For now, we can only stare at the website...which doesn't contain much besides Japanese text and some nice music.

    I wonder if it's worth betting that we'll be seeing The Last Story XIII 23 years down the line?

    xD Well i do think its going to be good. Lost Odyssey and blue Dragon were very good games.

    But he could have been a bit more original, even the logo is similar to the FF series.

    So, we now have some concept art and a little bit of info about the story.

    You can find the details here...if you can read Japanese.
