The Last Story not heading west

No plans for a US, EU launch.

Wii-owning JRPG fans suffered a blow today after it emerged that The Last Story is unlikely to launch in the west.

Nintendo told VG247 it has "no plans at present" to bring Mistwalker's promising game to these shores.

The news is sure to disappoint JRPG fans. The Last Story, which is being helmed by former Square man Hironobu Sakaguchi, has garnered interest from the genre's enthusiasts in recent months after a series of Japan-focused trailers hit the internet.

A single play through will set you back approximately 30 hours, there are 12,000 lines of in-game voiced dialogue and multiple online modes.

The Last Story releases on 27th January in Japan.
